Mashed potato vending machine VIDEO

Mashed potato vending machine - 7-Eleven Mashed Potato Vending Machine Is A Real Thing, In a move that will probably delight and disgust convenience store shoppers at the same time, We had to look at this a few times to be sure it was real. Turns out, it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Maggi mashed potato vending machine from 7-Eleven. In addition to Maggi's famous seasoning sauce, they also make powdered mashed potatoes and soups. On the off-chance that you don't have any hot water to mix with your mashed potato powder, these machines make it one step easier for you.

How does this possibly work, you ask? Simply pop your mashed potato cup under the spout (although, it seems pretty tempting to go for a Big Gulp in this case?), press the 'Mashed Potato' button and wait for hot, instant mashed potato delivery, with a bath of gravy in the near future. There appears to be a 'BBQ Mashed Potato' button on this machine as well. We can't even begin to imagine what that must mean.

Still can't believe it's real? Here is proof, thanks to YouTube user kkua1973. Tecca got in touch with a 7-11 rep who told them that while these machines are quite popular -- particularly in Singapore -- they're not sure whether the US will see these machines in their locations any time soon. The representative did note, however that "each 7-Eleven owner is responsible for requesting such hardware for their specific locations."

7-11 has begun offering mashed potatoes and gravy via a vending machine. Alas, the machines aren’t available here in the US yet. As strange as it sounds, we’d probably be first on line if they were.According to 7-11, Maggi mashed potato vending machines are quite popular overseas, particularly in Singapore.

For the cost of a dollar, customers get a paper cup filled with mashed spuds and optional chicken gravy. Mmm! In this video, a man actually tries the machine out. It quickly dispenses custardy-looking potato, then spits out a gloppy helping of gravy that seems far too hot to actually eat. “Yum,” he says skeptically.

What do you think? Do mashed potatoes on tap sound tasty or gross?A vending machine that dispenses mashed potato? Really? Yes, it's true. Food company Maggi makes it, and it could soon be coming to a 7-Eleven store near you. Mashed potato fans in the US may soon be able to get a tubful of the white stuff from a vending machine if there’s enough demand for food company Maggi’s somewhat unusual creation. The mash-dispensing machine is apparently a big hit in Singapore, where potato lovers in the city-state have been enjoying the spud-based snack at 7-Eleven stores for a while now. A YouTube video (below) demonstrating the vending machine shows a rather runny substance pouring from the nozzle, followed by an equally runny helping of gravy. And there you have it. Mash and gravy. There’s a “mashed potato BBQ flavor” button on the machine too, offering something a little different flavor-wise. We assume that the snack is produced from potato powder and water rather than freshly picked and peeled potatoes, so we wonder about its taste. And it really does look a little too much on the runny side for our liking. The Tecca website was told by a 7-Eleven rep that “each 7-Eleven owner is responsible for requesting such hardware for their specific locations,” which opens the door for the possible appearance of the mash maker at a convenience store near you. But would you use it? Would a tub of mash and gravy beat a burger when you’re hankering for a quick food fix?
