This is a new one for me. Well, kind off. I had always thought it would be cool to have a mystery vending machine for snacks, kind of like a Bertie Bott’s of vending machines where you might get something good or not so good.
But this mystery vending machine takes that concept and not only implements it (which I never did, so, good on y’all), and takes it a step further. They have the mystery vending machine in bars (great location for something fun) and they sell packs of stuff (or kits) with a theme or just totally random. So, it’s a little less random, which is great for consumers because they don’t want to waste their money on something terrible.
They have nostalgia kits, illicit substance kits, first date kits, and a lot of other adult oriented kits. All the kits have punny names and would probably entice quite a lot of bar goes to egg on their friends to buy one or two. Just gotta make sure these machines have credit card readers to not give those guys the “I don’t have any cash” excuse.
The mystery vending machine has apparently gone viral on Tik Tok, so there’s probably going to be a lot more of these machines or similar machines cropping up in bars near you. If you’re a bar owner and have a spot for this type of vending machine, you could list your bar on the Micro Real Estate site in the hopes that you can be connected to a mystery vending machine owner. You could also look for a vending machine on the Micro Real Estate site and make your own mystery vending machine.
My favorite full line of vending machines is the combo of pizza, beer, and art, but I might need to add on the mystery vending machine to that combo.
