The very first vending machine was made in Alexandria in 251 BC. It was a holy water dispenser. 

 

Japan has more vending machines than almost anywhere else - 5 million - one vending machine for every 23 people, where they sell everything from flowers to fish. From bread to bees. 

 

The boom of vending machines began in the 1950s with automated “fountain-style juice dispensers” installed inside office buildings to dispense a cup of juice for just 10 yen into a small paper cup.
