WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – Listen up! New technology may change the world as we know it. First there was the steam engine, then the light bulb, now burrito vending machines.
A Mobil station in West Hollywood, California houses Burritobox – the world’s first burrito kiosk.
“This is so weird, and awesome,” says one customer.
For $3 you can choose between six varieties of warm burritos – supposedly 100 % natural with no hormones or antibiotics.
They also have guacamole if you want it; along with Tabasco and sour cream but it’ll cost 50 to 75 cents more.
“Add Tabasco to anything and I think you’ll be alright,” says Robert Recinos.
But how does it taste?
“For the price it’s pretty good- it’s a little bland. I’d probably equate it to a burrito you’d buy and microwave,” says Thomas Gibbons.
Recinos doesn’t ‘think it’ll beat out local spots in L.A. but in a pinch, you can’t go wrong.’
The consensus: these taste as good as you’d expect burritos coming out of a vending machine to taste. Blah.
