News Brief: Cotton Candy, Robot Style

May 4, 2010 at 8:37 am Leave a comment

This is great news: coming soon to a strip mall or laundry mat near you, cotton candy. Yes, cotton candy! From a vending machine!

I love this idea. I can’t believe no one thought of it before.

The VendEver Cotton Candy Factory makes a fresh, fluffy cotton candy on a stick in under a minute, right before your eyes. And it cleans itself!  A self-scouring mechanism scrubs the sides of the machine every 10 vends, to get rid of that sticky build up. (I wish  my bath tub did that.)

For those of you looking for a business opportunity, note that the sugar and stick for each serving will cost about 10 cents. Suggested price per vend? 2 dollars.

VendEver is in the process of moving production from Taiwan to the U.S. in anticipation of huge demand. I’ll say.

Wouldn’t it be great to have one of these at your birthday party?
