If you live in Los Angeles or Las Vegas and come upon one of these vending machines but aren’t carrying cash, not to worry. Your money is no good anyway.
Cup Noodles parent company Nissin Foods USA has teamed up with Foodbeast, slinging noodles for only the cost of a selfie at the Del Amo Fashion Center in LA and Vegas’ Premium Outlets South.
