Here’s some of our favorite vending machine snacks, and also some items we’d like to see in vending machines: Kevin Lange: M&M Peanut are my go to snack. If they ever stop making these please come by my house. I’ll provide the gun and ammunition.Award-winning graphic designer and Hy-Vee marketing guru Christina Landon: Did Rob Buck say Pop Tarts?Former R-M photographer John Williams: There are these veggie wheat thins at the Design House that I have a few times a week. Its really the only thing I buy from them. As for something I’d like to see in vending machines, the Oatmeal cream Pies would be great. The only ones I’ve seen have been way over priced though.Randy Fox: The list is long and distinguished but probably the top 3 for me would be Snickers, M&M Almonds, or Payday.Carolyn Ford: most anything with nutsKathryn McDowell Pless: You’ve got my favorite right there. Peanut MM’s have always been my favorite. If I want something salty I go for Doritos or Ruffles.Mark London: Regular M&M’s are good in the car. Snickers, Milky Way, Twix, or the ever-elusive Clark bar hit the spot otherwise.Katie Collier: Dove dark chocolate pieces for me.  The vending machine area at The Register-Mail includes primarily drink options. The UPS Store’s Cody Miyler: Never liked food from a vending machine. It just seems old.Picture maker Kent Kriegshauser: gin.Former RM copy editor and former Knox College baseball slugger Thomas Andrew Jackson: Three Musketeers. It’s bigger than almost everything else. Plus it claims to have less fat than other candy bars, a mitigating factor from a guilt perspective. I only buy ‘em about once every other month, but I consider doing so far more often.Lori Way: I do love paydays and I get them often, but my favorite is the granola bars.“Crazy Kid Quotes” blogger Christy Kinney: Well back in the day I would gravitate toward the good ole bear claw! Yum. Nowadays I TRY and make better choices so it’s licorice or peanut M&Ms!Former RM sports writer Justin E. Conn: A rice crispy treat from a vending machine saved my life in New Orleans and I’ve been loyal since. Kellogg’s brand -- they’re better than any homemade.Joan Wright-Lee: Perhaps a coconut rum and pineapple juice cocktail? Sorry, I just got back from Florida!Michelle Goodwin Young: GardettosBrian Gilliam: Oreo’s... I can’t even have them in my house because they CAN be gone in one milk soaked sitting!!!Former WAIK/WGIL/WAAG radio personality Jonny King: Snickers, followed by peanut M&Ms, then plain M&Ms mixed in freshly made popcorn Mm...Steve Redfern: SnickersFormer professional umpire Bob Bainter: I’ll go old school: Andy Capp’s Hot Fries...so odd, yet so unavoidable for me when I see them!LeAnn Morgan: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!!!Rob Martin: Snickers and peanut butter crackers washed down with minute maid lemonade - this was my snack before hole 10 at bunker links when I was a teenagerTracy Warner: I love the Dunkin’ Sticks, not sure why maybe it’s the glaze on top or just the way they taste and I don’t even drink coffee. I also love the Andy Capp Cheddar Fries, they’re just too good to explain. Yes there are vending machines at both of my jobs but I try to avoid them, I mean I’m at work to make money not spend it! I’ve always wondered why they don’t have small bags of Cracker Jacks in vending machines. I’d buy them!RM Local News Editor Rob Buck: Peanut m&m’s have been my go-to of late, though I often mix it up and order a Baby Ruth – “Doodie!” Cheetos if I crave savory. Pop-Tarts have become passe, Christina Landon.Travis Martin Gustafson: Andy Capps hot fries.Mike Patton: Vending machines are the landing pad for PPPPPP failures.Chris McIntyre: I rarely buy things from vending machines. But if I do, I’d say regular M&Ms. Then I stick them in the freezer for an hour get them good and frozen and then chow down!Paula Mead Johnson: Peanut Butter crackers and Twizzlers! I wish we could get fruit in a vending machineCindy Beckmann Andrews: Cheese crackers with peanut butter and TwizzlersBev Bledsoe: Snicker candyIngrid Smith: Definitely peanut M&Ms! Licorice is my 2nd favorite. What I wish was in the vending machines? Apple slices with peanut butter dip or strawberries with chocolate dip.Charlie Dry: Snickers. BY WWW.GALESBURG.COM
