I'll be honest. The first time I wrote about the cupcake ATM, I hadn't actually tried it yet. (The line was too long!) But when I walked by the ATM this morning, there was nobody there. So I figured I'd give it a shot.
I had a pretty good selection of cupcakes to choose from, even after a long night of people presumably picking the cupboard bare. After making my selections (cuban coffee and vanilla chocolate), I got to watch a robot arm grab the cupcakes and bring them to a window.
The whole thing felt like a smooth transaction, even if more than $8 was a bit steep for two cupcakes.
Fortunately, there was no one behind me to complain if I took too long.
