The Top Ten Vending Machine Snacks Eick May 21, 2008 Candy, Interesting, Snacks 4 Comments Yesterday’s Washington Post featured a list from Automatic Merchandiser of the top 10 snacks, in dollar sales, from Vending Machines. Here they are. Any of these surprise you or jump out as unusual? Snickers Doritos Big Grab Peanut M&M’s Cheetos Cheez-It Original Twix Bar Strawberry Frosted Pop-Tarts Rice Krispies Treat Lay’s Chips Mrs. Freshley’s Jumbo Honey Bun A few interesting observations from this list. First off, the Mrs. Freshley’s is probably the most unknown entity on that list. As one of my friends pointed out, breakfast options in vending machines are limited, which might account for the popularity of Pop Tarts and the Honey Bun’s. Nothing else jumps out as me as particularly surprising, with one exception: Peanut M&M’s. Where are the regular M&M’s? They didn’t even crack the top ten. Do Peanut M&M’s really outsell regular M&M’s? Or is that just a vending machine phenomenon? The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Eick Latest posts by Eick (see all) Surge Wins Discontinued Foods Bracket! - April 12, 2013 Discontinued Foods Bracket FINAL VOTE: Surge vs. Planter’s Cheez Balls - April 10, 2013 Discontinued Foods Bracket Final Four!

I think its cause you get more bang for your buck with the crackers! And yes Peanut M&M’s are much better. Reply Jon October 27th, 2008 Funyuns: the diamond in the rough of vending machine snacks.
