Cupcake ATM’s - Shut up and take my money!
What else you can get 24/7.
The latest specialty vending machines.
New York, it’s the city that never sleeps and the city where you can get anything you damn well want at any time of the day or night.
This just in: Upper East Side bakery Sprinkles Cupcakes now have their very own Cupcake ATM (yeah, you read that right) on Lexington, between East 60th and 61st. With 20 varieties and 760 baked goods in stock at any one time, this vending machine is a real good time, any time. And, there’s something for everyone: it also stocks cookies and dog treats. Buzzfeed food if ever we saw it.
Here’s a quick look at where this more-than-genius concept first launched: in California (of course).
Instant gratification, it’s the order of the day. Cupcakes are great and there’s no limit to how many we can ingest (today it’s 12 chocolate ones and counting), but what else can you get around the clock?
Ed’s note: Rest assured, dear reader, that anything that could be considered – however obtusely – as a hangover cure has been prioritised by our editorial team.
Buy your way to my heart with a burrito
Oh man. Dreams really do come true in Hollywood. More specifically, in West Hollywood. There, you’ll find the BurritoBox – a God send and the answer to your late night cravings. In 60 seconds flat, you can circumvent that hangover that’s waiting for you with the goodness of shredded beef and cheese, roasted potato, egg and cheese, and chorizo, sausage, or egg and cheese. If it was possible to marry a vending machine, we would.
Gold digger: this Valentine’s Day, say it with bullion
A little low on gold bullion? Aren’t we ALL? Head to Stacks Bowers’ gold to go ATM on West 57th St in the Big Apple. It’s one of 20 or so in the world (it will come as little surprise that one of these is in Las Vegas), and super handy for those who need that $1327 gold bar in a hurry.
Got some anger issues? We’ve got just the place.
Frustrated at this largely pointless exercise we call life? Sick of people asking you to do things, like go to work? We hear ya Boo, and have just the thing to unleash all those feels: Yaisal and Kublitz’s Passive Aggressive Anger Release Machine. An interactive sculpture, it’s full of china – for you to smash. For the small price of a coin, watch something precious decimate into a thousand pieces at your bidding. Immensely satisfying. Our hot tip? Imagine that delicate china cat’s face is your ex’s. Bye Felicia (read: Steve).
Free the nipple
As writers on Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP encourage readers to burn their bras to release the energy and bad vibes of boyfriends past, we’ve got a cost-effective solution for those of you who have more than a few ex’s in your wake.
In Japan’s Tokyo, the magical city where you can get just about anything you want from a vending machine, we’ve found one that will dispense a brasserie of your choice. It’s all thanks to Japanese lingerie maker Wacoal and you can find its Une Nana Cool branded specialty shop in Shibuya.
Also great for anyone doing the walk of shame who left their lingerie on a bedroom floor somewhere (no judgement here ladies).
