There was a time in the not so distant past that the most exciting thing you could get from a vending machine was a soda. Well, a public vending machine, anyway. I'm told there are some interesting items to be had from vending machines in the restrooms of trendy night clubs. 

But now there are all manner of delights available to any consumer with a fistful of dollars or a debit card—socks, iPads, bouquets and tasty hot burritos.

You heard me. Burritos. 

From Imperial Beach Patch:

The company The Box Brands has opened its first burrito vending machine at a gas station in West Hollywood, according to LA Times blog Daily Dish.

"It's like a Red Box, with burritos," the article stated.

The new machine dispenses six varieties of burritos for $3 a piece.
