I can think of more difficult things to dispense from a vending machine!  Why on earth would you pick something as easy as mashed potatoes and gravy?  At a 7-11 besides, maybe that's why the potatoes look a little like a slurpee.  I'd like to see a General Tso Chicken and fried rice vending machine, now THAT would be technology at it's finest!  What would YOU like to see "vendenized", if that's a word.This machine is in Singapore and I haven't heard of any in the United States......yet.
