Crab-Dispensing Vending Machines
This Unique Vending Machine Sells Live Crabs in China

By: Laura McQuarrie (Superstar) Sep 18, 13

There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh seafood and this unique vending machine is helping people take advantage of China’s prime season for hairy crabs. One vendor introduced these unusual vending machines along the streets of Hangzhou.

It is strange enough that this vending machine dispenses crabs, but they are also all live creatures. Since this vending machine can be operated at any time of day, this should be extremely convenient for seafood lovers, especially since they can purchase a fresh crab, which comes with “vinegar and two bags of ginger tea,” for just a few dollars.

In addition to providing food that is fresh, this unique vending machine also promotes locally-sourced food, which is an extremely important issue in sustainability, so it might not be such an outrageous idea after all.
