Created by Japanese company Kagome, the Tomato Vending Machine satisfying proper nutrition while curtailing fatigue. Available in two sizes, a 280-gram bag for 400 yen (about $3.80) and a 180-gram bag for 300 yen (about $2.80), the tomatoes will help people realize that there are other less synthetic ways of improving their performance in their sport of choice.
