7-11 has a machine that dispenses mashed potatoes & gravy like a slurpee. Really.

I’ve often said that the only real problem with mashed potatoes is that you can’t get them extruded out of a machine in a 7-11, in the form of a spookily liquid glop with gravy. I mean, what even is the point? Luckily, 7-11s in Singapore are finally making this right, with Slurpee-style machines that poop mushy potato goo into a cup. Here’s what it looks like in action: The machine doesn’t just dispense potato mush — it dispenses BBQ potato mush too! Any day now we’ll have blue raspberry and Coke flavor. We might even see it right here on U.S. soil. Huffington Post says it’s not sure ; Raw Story says yes , these machines are turning up in the States. Which is only fair. Clearly, we’re the spiritual parents of this horrible gravy baby. I’d say we’ve earned it.
