Do you know what this is?? If you guessed the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM, you’re right. Which begs the question: is the first step towards a George Jetson future or a just a case of “Only in Beverly Hills”.
Given the speed with which I selected, paid for and received three scrumptious cupcakes, I don’t really care which it is. That’s because I have been known to wait in the Sprinkles cupcake line in the past. Once you’ve done that, you’ll realize why this ATM idea is brilliant!
All you need is a parking space, a credit card (careful, the little babies cost $4.00 each!) and five minutes later, you’re done. The most waiting you’ll do is for this little pink door to swivel open…. It’s pretty satisfying to watch the camera follow an arm that selects your cupcake, and drops your purchase into the delivery box.
The pink door swivels open and… by then you’re salivating. The only downside is that you have to pay for each individual cupcake on it’s own.
Can’t wait to dig in… (that V is for Vegan, a vegan red velvet cupcake). Sigh…. Maybe it really is the future.
