KosherMatic

(Hat Tip to my cousin Nina)

What will they think of next??

Check this out!!

Kosher food, from vending machines, is now available at John F. Kennedy International Airport, in New York!

The "Hot Nosh 24/6" can be found in the food court (#23 on the map) at JFK's new Terminal 4!

Hungry?

You can purchase onion rings, knishes, pizza, hot dogs, and more!

For $4.5o, you can purchase a hot dog any day of the week.

Despite the name, the machines operate 24/7. After all, "... you don't have to be Jewish to want a kosher hot dog," said Ruby Azrak, of Kosher Vending Industries.

According to Jeremy Olshan, who wrote the NY Post article:

"While it may not sound kosher to eat a hot dog from a vending machine, the company's patented technology can grill a perfect frank.

It takes about 90 seconds from Genesis to Exodus."



Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,
RivkA

I ate some of their freshly heated food at Hackensack University Medical Center, in New Jersey. I don't know which vendor it is, but getting some warm healthy kosher comfort food while waiting around at the ER was amazing!

Boy, I wish they had had this last year when I went with Ricki to the states. She was oggling at all the food stores, and there was very little beside cookies/chocolate that I could find, let alone something warm!

Since when is it there? I couldn't find it in July. I was starving. All there was were Dove icecream and Gediva chocolate. Honestly, I wanted my hagendaz mint chip, but it was highjacked from the freezer at.. long story, not for now and here.

Arnie -- ABH seems to disagree with you...

ABH -- it's the same vending company (they mention it on their website)

Rahel -- that is a great idea!! No kidding!
