We've seen some strange food vending machines at Great British Chefs, but this has to be at the top of the list for the strangest. In Singapore, on those days when you need some mashed potato, right NOW and can't find a shop that already sells it ready made, it appears that you can find a machine to dispense it for you.

You've probably heard of Maggi's instant soups and stocks. They've now branched out into making their own brand of instant mashed potato complete with a vending machine.
It's simplicity to use. Pop your mashed potato cup under the spout, press the 'Mashed Potato' button and wait for a serving of hot mashed potato to be poured in your cup. You can also get a splurt of gravy added for good measure.
There appears to be a 'BBQ Mashed Potato' button on this machine as well. "We can't even begin to imagine what that must mean" said Huffington Post - we can't either.
The video above shows it in action, just in case you thought it wasn't real!
