Japan Knows All About the Winter Feels, Sells Hot Soup Through Vending Machines


The Japanese laugh in the face of cold winter months as they have the ability to walk up to a vending machine and warm themselves up whenever they want.

As if the concept of selling self-heating cans of soup isn’t crazy enough, according to Rocket News 24, they are casually sold in Japanese vending machines.

As evident by its machines selling 24-hour burgers and women’s underwear, Japan takes its vending industry pretty seriously. It also looks like corn is a big deal in there, as at least seven of the offered soups are corn-based, along with a few red bean- and rice-based soup options.

The sizes of these soups range from 5.8 ounces for a Chunky Vegetable Soup Minestrone to 9.3 ounces for a drinkable, baked-apple product. The pricing for these soups hover around $1, so you don’t have to break the bank in order to stay warm.

It’s getting pretty cold here in the US as well. Maybe we should have some warm soup available at every corner.
