World's first caviar vending machine opens in US

World's first caviar vending machine opens in US

Beverly Hills Caviar has set up the luxury snack food vending machine at the Burbank Town Center Mall, which also dispenses all the accoutrements one needs for a gold-gilded, midnight snack.

Think caviar, truffles, escargot, blinis, bottarga (fish egg sacks), oils, Mother of Pearl plates and spoons, gift boxes and gourmet salts.

Beverly Hills is also home to another innovative, automated food delivery system. Earlier this year, a 24-hour ATM machine that dispenses cupcakes sent foodies on a sugar high. For $4, customers can choose between flavors like red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, chocolate marshmallow, and Irish chocolate.

It's been a big week for caviar. Celebrity chef Eric Ripert of what’s been described as the best seafood restaurant in New York Le Bernardin, also launched his own line of luxury caviar.

An 8-oz tin of Eric Ripert Imperial Select Caviar is yours for $1,050.
