Get to Know the WORLD’S FIRST Spice Vending Machine!

What’s 600 Pounds, a Little Salty & Drops It Like It’s Hot?

We created this spice vending machine because our local customers wanted to be able to browse and shop in person. Unfortunately, due to health and safety reasons and codes, our working factory is closed to the public…but we still want to give our friendly customers a way to shop in person. So we created a custom spice vending machine that now sits right outside our factory doors, right next to the amazing physical therapist Focus Physical Therapy at The Mellwood Art Center.

Vending Machine Location & Info

VENDING MACHINE LOCATION: 1860 Mellwood Avenue, right outside of Suite #268, just inside the doors up the ramp and to the left of the rear loading dock (see google directions here)


HOURS: Its open to the public everyday, 8am-10pm EST


PAYMENT METHODS: Credit cards only


HOW IT WORKS: Enter your credit card, wait for it to accept it (it’ll tell you), then pull out your credit card and make your selection. Right now you can only purchase one item per credit card transaction, so if you want more than one spice, you have to enter your credit card again. We know that’s a bit of a pain, so we’re working on solutions to make multiple purchases easier in the future.


AVAILABLE SPICES: Click here to see which spices are in the machine right now


The vending machine, a first of its kind, was built by Tony Orozco, Shop Foreman of the family-owned company, D&S Vending, Inc, and designed by the talented Morgan Melto, Art Director and Designer of The T!lt Group. We hope you love this new way to buy fresh organic spices!

Come Explore Mellwood Arts Center!

If you come visit us, be sure to bring your mask and check out the rest of The Mellwood Art Center, which is a huge former meat packing building that’s now home to artist studios, galleries, shops, cafes and events. There’s a ton of cool art and murals on display all over the building, much of it for sale, and tons of good selfie spots.

Some of the businesses you might want to checkout include a huge antique shop (Mellwood Antiques & Interiors), a fair trade African coffee shop (Ntaba Coffee Haus), a popular local pizza shop (Danny’s Mac’s), a beautiful flower shop (Belmar Flower Shop), a yummy candy store (Love It Candy Shop) and The Resource Room, where you can shop art and accessories made by super talented local artists and artisans. Happy exploring!

  1. Nice fresh masala’s…!!!

    • My mixer went out 2 years ago had for many years.

  2. I Love it I drink it its amazing thank you !!

  3. Well I think this is a great idea but making credit card only is not something I will use. What ever happen to good old cash.

    • Thanks, I’m glad you like our idea Barbara! We like cash too! 🙂 Unfortunately it’s just the way it had to be with buying a modern machine plus liability starts to be an issue if you have cash sitting in an unattended machine. Sorry about that.

  4. I love to cook and try new spices and dishes. So does my son. We cook together often. This would be so much fun to have.

  5. Love what I have tasted, waiting for more.
