There’s A Giant Sausage Roll Vending Machine Coming (And No, It’s Not A Wind-Up)

The Handbook
26th May 2021

You know that thing when a joke takes on a life of its own? When something you said as a throw away comment just goes, like, Way. Too. Far…. Meet the Sausage Vending Machine.

Originally it was an April Fool’s Joke, one of hundreds littered across the press a couple months ago (here’s a classic of the genre, thanks to yours truly). The gag was a marketing tool for Meatless Farm, makers of plant-based ‘meat’, and was designed to garner some click-throughs and a snigger at anyone who could believe it’s actually true.

EDITORIAL USE ONLY

Except now it is.

So overwhelming was the response, presumably in sausage roll hungry on-the-go punters who only deal in loose change, that the company is being forced to follow-through on its promise.

The pop-up device will be whirling and clunking all day long as it turns out flaky puff pastry creations for one day only...

The seven-foot machine is a beaut too. Taking to London’s South Bank in honour of National Sausage Day (I know, completely not a thing) on Saturday 5th June, the pop-up device will be whirling and clunking all day long as it turns out flaky puff pastry creations for one day only.

As if that wasn’t good enough, the sausage rolls will be free! Gratis! No risking death leaning the vending machine back-and-forth to retrieve your purchase, between 11am and 7pm on Saturday.

The sausage rolls will be entirely meatless, and the expectation of Meatless Farm is that you won’t even notice. Sausage rolls are a recent addition to their line-up, joining the likes of burgers, mince and hotdogs.

Dubbed M*** F*** Sausage Roll (geddit?), the sausage roll is available to buy in supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and ASDA, but surely a wander on the South Bank followed by a vegan treat from a machine is far more exciting?
