    Will they ever improve snack machine technology?

    Seems like ever since I was in like 2nd grade and would sometimes buy snacks in the machine that these things STILL to this day don't work well on a consistant basis.

    Where I work, theres a machine in the back to buy things for cheaper then customers can. But still even now that I'm much older, these things still suck half the time. When you put in your money (assuming it counts it right) it seems 25% of the time the snacks won't come out right. I find myself look very closely at how well the snacks are put in that I may want to purchase. If there put in well, they will slide out smoothly. But if not, they won't come out and I may have to (embarrassingly) shake the thing to get it out.

    Candy bars aren't too bad, however bags of chips are really iffy, they can easily get clogged up and stuck. I just don't get why the machines aren't built to PUSH THE $#@! out of the snack to MAKE SURE it comes out lol.

    I told some people at work that a 100 years from now techology will be amazing, yet snack machines will still continue to rob people of money because they suck soo bad. Are companies trying to make them suck to make more money? lol

    New machines have a new fail-safe where the coil will make another revolution to push to candy down if the sensor didn't detect anything falling. I think there may be a vender tray/shelf specially designed for chips but I think most companies don't bother to buy those, but I really don't know.

    There are some really cool ones now, I like the ones that have like a suction cup and they suck up the item and bring it to the tray.
    Trophy-licious!

    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    In my middleschool we had apples, oranges, foods with fiber and other such things. it was all healthy food, I don't know what it's like now, it's probably all chips and crap like that.

    I bought a Fanta from a coke machine once and got 4 bottles for the price of 1. Evens things out a little.

    Vending machines have come a long way. They even demand health insurance.

    I have a snapple machine at work. I had a meeting with some fellow employees at my work about food machines but the guys/gals wanted something different considering they never really ate chips or candy bars. So I asked them about a Snapple machine, they love it. I have a lot of things at that place, it's almost pointless to have a food vending machine, some employees have kids trying to sell stuff for school, a few parents children/daughters come by for girl scouts. We have a grill out twice a year. The Snapple machine is usually empty after a few weeks, so they get a pretty good amount of money at my place. Also, within walking distance, a little less then a block away there is a fresh deli sandwich place that is excellent.
