Neat! 7-Eleven Singapore Mashed Potato Dispensing Machine

At 7-Eleven Singapore, it seems having instant mashed potatoes is popular (or cheap) enough to warrant having a mashed potato AND gravy dispenser in stores. It's like a Slurpee machine! But for mashed potatoes!

Beyond a little concern about old mashed potatoes getting stuck in the dispensing tube, it seems interesting enough. The machine has two separate dispensing spouts (one for mashed potatoes and one for gravy). You just place a bowl down and press a button and out comes piping hot mashed potatoes, shortly followed by gravy. You can see it in action below:


Simple enough, no? I wonder if the mashed potatoes and gravy are kept in a rotating drum like the Slurpee machines or if they're mixed each time your press the button.

It's one Singapore dollar a pop (about 79 cents).

It looks like you can choose from chicken gravy and barbecue gravy. I'm not sure how I feel about a barbecue gravy.

The instant mashed potatoes and gravy are made by Maggi, best known for their seasoning sauce (like soy sauce, but without the soy). If you live in Australia, chances are your children eat the same stuff at the school canteen/cafeteria.
