21st Century Bubblegum

Are you old enough to remember the vending machines outside shops when you got bubble-gum delivered for a penny? Now bubble gum is 20p and other confectionery can be 50p or a £1 from these new style candy machines in Clarendon Shopping Centre.


  1. Yep, we have them in shopping malls here too. On one hand they're cheerful looking. On the other, visual overkill. Modernity marches on.

  2. Twetnty-first century rip-off. (Though there are times when the pleasure you're paying for is not the taste of the confection but the pleasure of buying from such a contraption.)

  3. Very colouful, I'll bet the local dentist loves these machines?!

  4. Have you seen what a small amount of sweets you get for your money ?.......a rip off !
