We at Newspaper Snack Machines are confused and upset by this announcement — that our beloved [redacted] cafeteria is becoming … vending machines?
I wanted to announce to all [redacted] employees that, effective March 9, 2013, we are planning to change food-service vendors in both the [redacted] building and the [redacted] plant. We plan to move away from a full-service cafeteria with fixed hours, towards an on-site “market style” food service operation that will be open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
This “market style” arrangement will provide employees with access to an array of higher-end vending options, fresh meal choices, pre-made sandwiches, salads, beverages and other selections. We believe this arrangement will continue our ability to provide high-quality food options, and to do so for all [redacted] employees. This food will be available for purchase at any time day or night, so everyone will be able to take advantage of these food options, no matter their work schedules. We will provide more specific information about this over the next few weeks.

An attempt to demonize the vending machines, so no one will use them and they can be eliminated.
Dear Tastykake: Either embrace the C-K substitution, or don’t. Your inconsistency is upsetting the journalists.
Bib not included.
This flavor has allegedly been discontinued.
We are told that an employee at this East Coast newspaper bought his own six-pack of Sunkist and left it on his desk. The next morning, his sodas were in the soda machine, with this hand-written label.
From a mid-sized, Mid-Atlantic paper. Cheerwine is a soda primarily found in North Carolina.
From Arkansas’ largest newspaper (google that tagline and you’ll know which one).
"Western Omelette on Toast"
We’re a small newspaper in New England. I’ve eaten many a questionable chicken- and tuna-salad sandwich out of the break room vending machine, but the Western Omelette on Toast is a bridge too far.
