Egg Vending Machine

    Newer Older

    Apparently, you can find anything in a vending machine in Japan. I found this small tent with a refrigerated vending machine. Each small compartment contained a bag of eggs, probably 10 or 12. The cost was 300 yen, or about $3. The eggs are from a nearby farm, and the farmer fills the machine daily with freshly laid eggs. I will need to buy some and see how they taste.

      This is a note to anyone who has experience buying eggs from such a machine. I noticed that the eggs are in some sort of mesh bag. It seems to me that the eggs would break easily! Is this a big problem?

      Well, each bag of eggs is in its own little compartment, so when you put your money in you choose which little door to open and take out your eggs. Its not like a typical vending machine where the product falls down to the bottom. If that were the case, there'd be a lot of broken eggs!
