I don't eat animal products unless I accidentally inhale an insect. I'm not here to promote veganism/vegetarianism, but rather to give my carnivore friends something to gawk at. Those of you meat eaters who can afford to shop at Nordstrom (in Seattle) can purchase some edible animal flesh from a vending machine!


SOURCE No, you’re not dreaming. That’s really an Owens Meats vending machine in the men’s department at the flagship Nordstrom store in downtown Seattle. Praise the lard and pass the pepperoni stick. The meat machine, located steps from the best shoe shine stand in the city – yes, I’m a regular fixture there, which is how I spotted this awesome development – is filled with smoked and cured meats from the family-owned butcher shop in Cle Elem. Owens Meats was the pioneer of the meat-filled vending machine, rolling them out more than two years ago. There are now more than a dozen around the state including “Candy Machines for Carnivores” in Redmond, Wenatchee, Yakima, North Bend and in the Filson store on First Avenue. But Nordy’s???

It likely has to do with charcuterie being very trendy right now.

The plants that produce the most oxygen are not your typical edible vegetables- at least 1/2 of the oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere is produced by phytoplankton, tropical rain forests also make a huge contribution to the stuff we breathe.

Nothing like a superdose of nitrite preservative "food product".

How much is in then depends on how they're done.

Local made stuff would use the least.

I thought of meat on a stick when I saw that thinking it will evolve into a machine that just grows meat on sticks one day. Over time people won't care.

It's called FEBO, here's a photo of one of them:

That sounds pretty cool - I have always been intrigued by the Automat restaurants that were popular during the 50's!

An automat is a fast food restaurant where simple foods and drink are served by vending machines. The world's first automat was named Quisisana, which opened in Berlin, Germany in 1895.
Vending machines are also popular in Japan:

It's just odd, to me, that I could take my mother in law to Nordstrom for a fitting after cancer (great service BTW) and now, if it were today, I could ingest some risky food. The circle coming back around?
Take your vitamin C folks until we know for sure. I take my crispy bacon with a healthy dose of vitamin C.
