Airheads has an underwater vending machine and it looks way more fun than I thought it would
· May 26, 2024 ·

When Airheads announced they were tossing vending machines into pools, my first thought was "someone is going to get electrocuted."

However, on reading the announcement, I was intrigued.

For many adults their first experience with Airheads was on summer break at the pool, where they used to play in the water and swim until their hands and feet turned pruney. But times have changed, as a recent survey indicated that nearly three-quarters of adults don't swim as much as they did when they were kids. Airheads is on a mission to bring the fun back to the pool and get adults swimming again.

So this summer, the candy company is debuting a first-of-its-kind Underwater Vending Machine that dispenses Airheads while submerged in a pool. The vending machine is fully waterproof in depths of up to eight feet and comes equipped with an air propulsion system candy launcher. Instead of taking wet money the machine takes fun in exchange for Airheads bars.

An air-propulsion candy launcher?

This you have to see.

Now, I'll be up front here.

I don't like Airheads, never have.

I was one of those weird kids that turned down candy because I don't like how sugar makes my teeth tingle.

That said, I'd definitely risk being electrocuted to hang out under water playing charades so that goofy box will shoot its teeth-tingling torpedoes at me.

That looks like a ton of fun!

And when mom says the fun's over, and it's time to go inside, you can have all mine: pinky swear.
