As the saying goes, change is inevitable... except from a vending machine.

Here at the Let's Eat blog we have been truly gobsmacked by tales of the mashed potato vending machine.

Currently doing the rounds on the Internet, the above clip shows the mashed potato and gravy vending machine at work in a 7-Eleven store in Singapore where, apparently, the idea of buying a takeaway tub of mashed spuds is commonplace.


Fair enough. Cultural differences and all that but those of us with long memories may recall the last time that mashed potatoes and machines got mixed up. Does the phrase ‘For mash get Smash’ ring any bells?
