BURBANK (CBSLA.com) — Caviar is not the usual fare one would expect from a vending machine.
Beverly Hills Caviar has unveiled its first touch-screen vending machine at the Burbank Town Center, offering “a large selection of the world’s finest selection of caviar, truffles, escargot, bottarga, blinis, oils, Mother of Pearl plates and spoons, gift boxes and gourmet salts.”
Prices range from under $50 up to $500, KNX 1070’s Vytas Safroncikas reports.
“Oh, my God, too expensive for me. I can’t afford that,” one passersby said of the products offered by the vending machine.
All manner of products are now being offered via vending machine – ranging from the usual fare of candy, snacks and soda all the way to pricey electronics like iPods and iPhones – but fresh foods seem to be the latest trend.
Earlier this year, the LA-based cupcake bakery that started the cupcake craze began dispensing the treats via an ATM called 24-Hour Sprinkles.
“Yeah, I can think of probably better things I can buy out of a vending machine than fish eggs,” another passersby said.
Curious to try the automatically-dispensed caviar? The vending machine is at Burbank Town Center mall, 201 E. Magnolia Blvd., on the second floor across from Bath and Body Works. It operates daily from 7 a.m. till 2 a.m.
