Live crab vending machines in China's subway

Couldn't believe it till i saw it in my own eyes. A vendor nearby tells me he has a dream to sell live chicken in vendor machines as well

 

 

 ...If you live in Nanjing, China, you can get a crab right from the vending machine! Having skipped the hassle of making a trip to the market to buy groceries, you simply go home and cook the fresh hairy crab to your desired taste. crab vending machine 31 Live Crab Vending Machines in China Subway picture The crabs are priced from US$1.50 to US$8, depending on the size. You can even buy a bottle of vinegar to spice up your crab, for only US$0.80. crab vending machine 4 Live Crab Vending Machines in China Subway picture The vending machine is kept at a constant temperature of 5-10 degrees Celsius to make sure that the crabs are in a constant state of hibernation. They are also packed in custom-shaped plastic packages. crab vending machine Live Crab Vending Machines in China Subway picture Better yet, if by chance you get a dead crab, you get three crabs for free! A customer who has tried the crabs said, “Two days ago, I was passing by, and saw that they were cheaper than at the markets. I was curious, so I got two. They tasted all right, so I’m back today for more.” It looks as if the busy commuters of Nanjing will never go to bed on an empty stomach again. Links (1 2 3 4)
