    I think that kind of vending machine would be nice now, with all the unhealthy eating with this option i think a lot of folks would pick fruit instead of candy and hopefully fruit would not cost as much as a dollar a piece!

    I would LOVE for one of these to be at my college, I probably wouldn’t even go to the regular one if we had one of these.

    In 1970-1973 I was in high school in California. We had an apple vending machine in our cafeteria area. They were always cold, huge and wonderful. I bought apples regularly because they were convenient and wonderful. I think all schools and businesses should have that choice. I am sure there would be more people buying and eating fruit.

    Frigid Fruits is/was my family business which my great grandfather started. I was wondering if you had a better picture of the ads so I could read what they say. It was started by William Roth (Bill or Wm. R. Roth) in Detroit, Michigan. I would be happy to see if I can gather any additional information, as I am now curious myself.

    Thank you.
