Ever found yourself in the mood for some caviar but didn't have quite enough time to stop off for some on the way to your private jet for a trip to your own personal island? Me neither, but apparently someone has, because they invented the caviar vending machine.
The machines dispense $US500 per ounce caviar along with mother of pearl spoons and all the other paraphernalia required for proper enjoyment of the delicacy. These vending machines — or "ATM's for caviar" if you want to be less pedestrian about it — have shown up at a trio of upscale malls in Los Angeles. It's hard to imagine many people who would be keen on eating caviar from a vending machine in a mall no less, but they probably only need a few sales to break even. Better start saving up.
