nibbles dispenser

something along the lines of optic dispensers in pubs
  [vote for,

stave off the pangs of hunger with a row of little dispensers that you can access safely while driving. I’d like one for peanuts, one for jelly babies and one for chewing gum bites. raise the opening mechanism and out pop your nibbles. no fumbling with bags or wrappers, no nibbles all over the floor. no nasty accidents.

       I like this. However, there might be a safety issue; it would be worse than footering with your radio. Perhaps tubes dangling from the car ceiling into yer gub?

       If it could create hot cheese and onion rolls, or cheese and spring onion sandwich I'd vote ten fold, or maybe stilton and onion served on a tuc buscuit. Love it

       If you want a vending machine in your car, you're going to need a bigger car.

       Sorry to be a downer, but didn't Wayne (of Wayne's World fame) already do this with cherry licorish whips?

       Yeah he did. Although jelly babies would be much cooler.

       Just do like I do and use the ashtray for skittles and breathmints.

       ...whats an "optic dispenser"?
senatorjam, Jul 11 2002

       senatorjam: an optic dispenser is a small automatic measuring device which is fitted into the neck of an inverted bottle of spirits or other high-value alcoholic beverage. When the lever is pressed, a valve opens and the contents of the optic drains into the waiting glass below. When the lever is released, the bottom valve closes and the top one opens, allowing the air in the optic to bubble up into the bottle; the optic itself refills automatically with a corresponding volume of liquid. They are universally used in British pubs for the dispensing of spirits, which must be served in measured amounts by law. Publicans can be heavily fined for serving short measure. Likewise, to maximise profit, they don't want to serve too generously. The optic achieves this quite neatly.
