This Vending Machine Gives Free Chocolate in Exchange for Facebook Info

By Tom Pritchard on at

Cadbury has installed a vending machine in Sydney in order to match people up with their perfect flavour of chocolate bar. The catch? You have to log into Facebook from the vending machine to get one.

The idea is to try and use people's Facebook info to determine which flavour of chocolate bar they like the most (hazelnut, peppermint, rocky road, Crunchie, Turkish Delight, or regular). It definitely wasn't to trick people into handing over their personal details to get a measly 50p chocolate bar, no siree. To be honest, what is Cadbury going to do with your drunk photos anyway?

This is an advertising stunt and isn't likely to spread, which is a good thing. It's bad enough that the internet is covered with 'Log-in with Facebook' buttons, without sticking them on vending machines as well. [DigitalSpy]
