Vending machines

Forget old-school junk food vending machines filled with potato chips.

A few companies — including Yo-Naturals and Organic Vending — now carry organic and natural snack alternatives for on-the-go noshers, everything from pesticide-free milk and tea to tortilla chips and dried fruit.
