Yo!Naturals: Healthy Vending Machines

Wouldn't it be great if you could get your favorite health food from a vending machine? Well, my buddy YumSugar just told me about the San Diego based company YoNaturals, and they are bringing health food to the ultimate icon of snacking convenience - the vending machine.

YoNaturals is on the front line in the battle against junk food vending machine, and I wholeheartedly applaud their efforts. In their Yo!Zone and Yo!Thirsty machines you won't find the junk food staples of your youth. Gone are the fluorescent orange cheddar crackers filled with hydrogenated oil laden peanut butter, in their place you will find Annie's Organic Cheddar Bunnies and Pirate Booty. Instead of candy bars, you can choose from a selection of energy bars, like some of my faves - Luna, Clif and LARABARS. Soda is replaced with organic milk and organic juices. Yippee!!!

Yo!Naturals distribution is growing ever wider and you should be on the look out for their machines in hospitals, hotels, offices and schools - you know large, kind of institutional places. Just the kinds of places where you need a snack and can never find anything healthy to satisfy your hunger.

I really like this idea. I hope the UT campus gets them. I also hope a lot of middle and high schools get them. I remember in middle school, I would buy Rolos candies everyday after school. BAD idea!

Truthfully it really doesn't sound any better for you than the other junk food. It's still all unnecessary foodstuffs, Pirate's Booty is no better for you than Cheetos. An empty calorie is an empty calorie is an empty calorie. And I thought Vitamin Water was a bad thing laden with sugar. Why not a machine that dispenses organic apples, oranges and veggies rather than junk food repackaged?

I'm so excited! They need to have these everywhere...including college campuses where munchies can get the best of you. No more freshmen (sophomore, junior or senior for that matter) 15!
