1 Minute Read

There’s nothing worse than a traditional vending machine helping itself to your hungry wallet without dispensing anything in return. Watching your favorite snack gets stuck on its way towards you is equally frustrating. However, they can win you some laughs!

Here’s a look at some of the epic vending machine fails from across the internet:

  1. Wait, its almost here or is it?

  1. I Didn’t Know Vending Machines Sold That!

There are many things that vending machines just shouldn’t sell. For example, animals. No matter how cute and cuddly they may look, you won’t want to find them anywhere near your lunch.
