Why don't drink vending machines have an option to add low-calorie sweetener to the drinks instead of sugar ? It could be a cost-plus option. The dispensers wouldn't need to be very big. Several different common brands could be offered.

Baked. Have your vendor get a better model machine for your location. [krelnik, Oct 15 2002, last modified Oct 21 2004]


       spoilsport, why can't the dispenser be enormous and very loud? with those knife switches, we used to be so fond of.

       Or a place where you have to kick it to activate it. Every now and then, you hit the jackpot and the change tray overflows like a slot machine.

Don't you realise how hard those are to get these days ? No Evil Superweapon would be taken seriously if it used all solid state triac controls for the power feed.

       A relative of mine who lives in England carries around sacharin tablets in her purse. I believe she said each tiny little tablet contains the sweetening power of a teaspoon of sugar (maybe it was a half-teaspoon; the tablets were tiny). Someone with such a dispenser could just order coffee black and sweeten it very easily, carrying easily a week's supply of tablets in a very small container.

       [supercat] you buy them in little dispenser type containers.
