On a recent visit to Japan we were all amazed at the amount of vending machines there were around. It felt like every street corner had a machine of some type either cold drinks, snacks or hot drinks or even both! My kids loved this. We even got Ben and Jerrys ice cream out of the vending machines! One thing we were all taken with was the hot drink vending machines. You could order a hot chocolate, coffee or tea and it arrived in a can (which was cold to touch) On opening the can it somehow heated up the drink inside and you then had a nice warm hot chocolate or coffee! It was great! I would love to have these drinks here as like this weekend standing in the wind and rain watching kids sport it would have been great to have one in my bag at the ready to warm us up!
