FYI - Healthy Vend Snack Machines

One approach to more successful "Healthy Vending" is to have a machine
dedicated to the concept and make it visible to potential customers as such,
rather than have a few items mixed in with all that unhealthy stuff in the
same old machine.  So says a vendor in Colorado, if I remember correctly.  

So, if you have not heard about or seen them, there are some new vending
machines being configured, painted, and engineered to market the often,
odd-sized healthy foods that include fresh fruit, yogurt, salads, etc.
Below is just one example.  No picture in this email, but for those who want
the pictures and more details, go to the following web  site:

Note:  As many have pointed out, there are no shelf-stable fresh sliced
apple products or other fresh foods with expiration dates of 4 weeks from
receipt at the warehouse and or that do not require refrigeration.  If you
have a local licensed supplier and can change out the products daily in your
refrigerated snack machines, and so on, great!  In many locales, to do some
of the truly fresh-prepared items or even load fresh fruits, you may need a
health permit and other things in order to comply with your health codes as
a food preparer and server.

I am sure others will be quick to point out some of the pitfalls and
