Strange things you can buy in vending machines

News Limited ^ | July 9, 2017 | Michelle Tchea 

YOU can now eat gourmet vending machine food. No longer limited to packets of chips and a can of coke, machines around the world now dispense farm-fresh produce, caviar, and even bottles of Moet.
And if you’ve got a bit of extra cash to throw around, why not buy some gold ... or even a brand new Ferrari from a vending machine?
Here are our favourites.
Champagne
Location: Gold Coast, Las Vegas, and Selfridges in London.
What you get: The Star Gold Coast’s Garden Kitchen & Bar is the first venue in Australia with a champagne vending machine by Moet & Chandon. Think you need a glass? Drink the bubbly through a gold sipper on the bottle if you are truly desperate and can’t wait for the bartender to bring you your glasses. Yours for just $29 each. Cheers.
Sex Toys
Location: Philadelphia
What you get: A Philadelphia-based vending machine company, PinkBox believes ‘sex should be exciting, fun and safe’. Don’t be shy, pick up condoms, Lelo vibrators, glass dildos and even restraint kits to help make your business a ‘better place’ says PinkBox. Prices start at $4 to $99. Each product is curated and hand-picked by the resident PinkBox sex-expert, so you know you’re getting the best.
Gold
Location: Las Vegas, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, but of course.
What you get: Gold to Go thought they were on to something when they first launched a vending machine exclusively selling gold in vending machines. Rumour has it, the machines are slowly being removed because no one is really investing in gold anymore, which is a shame, but we like the idea of encouraging novice gold investors to invest in a cool $1000 gold bar during a vay-cay in Dubai. Why not?[continued]
