Diet Coke Reveals World’s Thinnest Vending Machine

Vending.comWe all know that, in general, vending machines for sale are getting leaner in terms of caloric content, but what about the actual size and shape of the product? While Coca-Cola has been promoting slim sodas with their Diet Coke brand for decades, they are now taking a more literal approach with their brand-new drink vending machine.

Appropriately dubbed “The Slender Vender,” this ultra-thin Coke soda machine has been popping up in a variety of locations around the United States. A vending product this small was sure to get big reactions, and Coca-Cola was wise enough to capture some of the best ones in the YouTube video below:

The clip not only spotlights the construction of this one-of-a-kind Coke soda machine, it also shows the versatility of a truly slim vending machine. The “Slender Vender” can be seen hiding between larger vending machines, standing amongst treadmills at a gym, and in-between bowling lanes at an alley. It’s certainly a smart way to market the calorie-conscious Diet Coke product, and is unique enough to make many stop in their tracks and grab a cola. In an age where vending machines seem to always aim bigger, it will be interesting to see if the “Slender Vender” encourages vending machine manufacturers to create smaller, more versatile devices.

Hostess to Re-Launch Bakery

vending.comHearts all over the world were crushed several months ago when it became known that the Hostess brand would be shutting down key operations. In addition to job losses, snack enthusiasts were devastated at the thought that their beloved Twinkies might never see the light of day in their local snack machines. Well, Twinkie fans, time to rejoice! Under new ownership, Hostess Brands will be relaunching its Twinkie Bakery in Columbus, Georgia, which will help put the mega-popular, cream-filled delicacy back in the hands of the people who love it most.

According to Vending MarketWatch, Hostess will create 200 jobs to help support the bakery, with more positions opening up over several years. The facility will begin operating again this summer, producing the ever-desired Twinkies along with other favorites such as HoHos and Ding Dongs. This new development has been made possible by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, who purchased select Hostess assets this April.

This will hopefully put these world-famous treats back in vending machines all over the area, bringing a smile to those who thought the products would be long gone. Twinkies and various other Hostess products have been a staple of the vending machine business for decades, so we are delighted to see them pop up more often than ever!

New Kiosks Convert Gift Cards to Cash

Vending.comChances are you have used a credit gift card to buy treats at your local snack machine, but you probably never used gift cards like this. According to The Columbus Dispatch, a new gift card exchange kiosk in grocery stores is giving out cash in exchange for unwanted gift cards with leftover value.

Those that frequent the central Ohio Giant Eagle grocery store will find an all new machine titled Alula, which comes from the same people responsible for popular products such as Coinstar and Redbox. How does this all work? Exactly how it sounds. All you need to do is insert your unwanted gift card in the machine and you will immediately receive cash compensation that matches the value on the gift card. According to Alula’s marketing manager, this unique gift card to cash machine is an exciting way to draw people into their local grocery store when they normally wouldn’t. This innovative vending machine formula has worked with the aformentioned Redbox and Coinstar devices and people are often left with unused gift card value, so this new venture could very likely be a success.

Supermarkets and snack vending machines have gone hand in hand since the gumball days, and it is exciting to see their relationship reach a level where anything from movies to cash can be procured from supermarket machines. What could be next?

NYC Denies Large Soda Ban

Vending.comIt has been widely publicized that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been trying to keep people from buying large amounts of soda for some time now. In an attempt to change overall consumption habits, Mayor Bloomberg wants to put a ban on large-sized sodas in restaurants, delis, movie theaters, drink vending machines, and a variety of other locales that typically sell soft drinks.

While Bloomberg sees the ban as a way to promote better overall health, Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling officially struck down the proposal on March 11th, according to Vending Times. Justice Tingling called the bad “arbitrary and capricious” because it only applied to a select few types of establishments. The potential impact of the ban was questionable, as soda lovers could always stock up on a few bottles at their local drink vending machine if they cannot buy a 2-liter drink at the corner store. According to the article, it seems many health groups back the city’s decision to prevent the ban.

How do you feel about the potential of a ban on drink sizes? Should the issue be addressed at a storefront and vending machine level, or should it be up to the general population to develop better health habits.

Digital Vending is Here to Stay

Vending.comAlmost every aspect of our everyday lives have gone digital and the vending machine business is following suit. Since the industry’s inception, the world of vending has only been about seeing a product and buying it, though modern vending machines incorporate just about every human sense.

Vending Marketwatch recently highlighted the rapid evolution of vending products, from analog snack vending machines to modern smart-devices.

Just like our computers do everyday, vending devices have evolved from simple food tools to avenues for connecting the entire world.

We are huge industry enthusiasts here at the Vending.com blog, and we truly cannot wait to see where our beloved business goes next.

Coke Trying to Connect World Via Vending Machines

Vending.comThe Coca-Cola company will forever be synonymous with the vending world, mostly because its beverages can be found in snack and drink vending machines all throughout the world. However, the folks behind Coke are getting ready to take vending to an all-new level, as their latest machines are intended to connect customers from all over.

According to Advertising Age, Coke is attempting to integrate vending machines into their “happiness project,” an idea that they have been working with in various capacities. The company already has a machine you can hug in Singapore, as well as a Turkish machine that gives fresh colas to loving couples. Their latest project, first teased in December, is a high-tech machine that allows users to communicate via webcam to people in India and Pakistan, creating a friendly conversation between countries that have had less-than-friendly relationships.

Whether or not Coca-Cola’s new vending machine can truly change the world, their grand vending vision is certainly an admirable one. Customers could potentially make an unexpected best friend while purchasing their beverage of choice, which is something that cannot be said about everyday drink vending machines. Here’s to Coca-Cola, and the hope that the right technology can be used to make the world a better place
