After lunch with the grands in Dallas today, the suggestion was made to show BeBe and Papa the new ATM CUPCAKE machine! We took a leisurely stroll down the sidewalk and stopped at a brick wall with the proclamation, "there it is."
Boy, howdy! Any hungry person can now satisfy their sugar craving and receive a DE-LISH miniature cake anytime day or night (24/7) at one of these automatic, self service, brilliant inventions. A cupcake via the ATM!
Yes, we tried it out. The process is simple. You touch the screen, choose the flavor of your choice from a list only grandma could make, the number you desire and add it to your "cart."
After sliding the necessary credit card through the slot, a beautifully designed brown box is delivered to the opening below, the door raises and BINGO! There it is! Inside the box is the most beautifully decorated cupcake ever created by man, or machine, or robot, or whatever/whoever is behind that pink screen.
How very creative! How very GOOD! (We shared a couple of red velvet and milk chocolate!)
It ain't cheap! ($4.25 ea.) But the novelty, the taste, and the sheer convenience has made this little stop at the brick wall worth it! We heard that often there is a long LINE waiting to touch that pink screen.
Capitalism at it's finest.
I don't know who thought this up, but I'm pretty sure they aren't working at a minimum wage job today. Evidently this culinary delight is found only in a few select cities in America. I'm putting money on the fact that it won't be long until this logo is as familiar as the golden arches.
It's one of those days when I ponder, "why didn't I think of that?"
Evidently it takes a genius!
