Stuck snack rescued!

Bag of Lay's no longer in vending machine limbo

By Jeremy Selwyn
Chief Snacks Officer


For the past day and a half, everyone in my office has been carefully monitoring the stuck bag of Lay's in the vending machine. There were some fruitless attempts to bang it loose, plus a good debate about whether buying the Life Savers behind it or the Chex Mix above would knock it loose, accomplish nothing, or just get another snack stuck.

I decided it was worth the 60-cent risk to buy the Life Savers. Then I talked The Bonnie into shooting some video of it with her fancy new phone.

Disappointing postscript: Turned out that the Lay's had a week-old expiration date!
