Mayo and squid pizza flavored chips, tiny dried fish and almonds, chocolate and corn cream latte

Porno mags. I never asked, but nonetheless, got taken to a remote location in the countryside where they had a vending machine and was bought a copy or two. Many many years ago.

In the bubble years pony kegs of beer, 2 litre whisky bottles, and pre-worn panties.

chicken soup lozenges. Imagine consomme cubes in your mouth, it works well with sweets but not with savory flavors. I'm still searching for those that sell used underwear and still couldn't find any. The weirdest but also great find that I made was a can of hot corn soup, it tasted great but felt weird drinking it out of a can.

Back in 1993: VHS videos with Polaroid photos of girls with ages such as 11, 12, 13... For real.

One of my own personalized monogrammed private wears. Must have gotten it during a burglary a year back and sold to a second hand shop or something equally as creepy. Wasn't even wished.

face masks and a pack of antibacterial wipes.  The masks are sold in a two-pack, while the pack of antibacterial wipes contains ten sheets. Both products will retail 200 yen each.

DyDo decided to sell the new products as concerns surrounding public health has become heightened during the coronavirus pandemic. By providing these highly sought after products through the convenience of a vending machine, customers will be able to purchase them at any time of the day or night.

Chicken poop? @commanteer. - DyDo plans to deploy about 3,000 units nationwide and plans to include more health products in their machines in future. It’s all part of DyDo’s plan to cater to all kinds of customer needs outside of the drinks.

Back in early 1990s hard liquor in a place where anyone with coins could purchase. No camera, nothing. Then, again early 1990s, VHS and magazines with very very very young girls. They could have been around 10. Not all were fully dressed. Osaka and Tokyo. Used ladies underwear.

Fresh eggs. Circuit boards

Chocolate covered potato chips, pineapple Pepsi. Sorry, but No and once again, NO!

1990's..... Kiddy porn, possession of which would quite rightly get you a jail sentence in most countries, openly sold in a vending machine. Used panties with "worn for 5 days" on the packet. Also live (or in this case ) recently passed away gold fish in a bag.

Chicken poop?

Used for fertilizer, I assume.
