When did we start calling vending machines "ATMs"?

"Automatic Treat Machine"?

Moving this to MD, which is where I think you intended to post this.

This is an interesting idea, but I am skeptical about it. I wonder how much the machine costs and its ROI. If I get a craving for cupcakes at midnight, I would substitute it with something else instead of taking a trip in the dark to a cup cake vending machine.

What an exciting video. As if we didn’t know how a vending machine works. But I like the inside view of the machine on the screen.

Yes. Thank you.

New York City isn't as dark at night as you might imagine. I wouldn't go to the cupcake vending machine either. If it's not fresh, it might as well have come from the supermarket rather than going out.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
