Mini Snacker Munch Box Model 3

Mini Snacker Munch Box Model 3

This is a Mini Snacker Munch Box fun size candy bar vending machine, the third edition, to be exact. The Model 3 (M3) was sold in the early 1990’s, followed by versions up to at least the Model 11. I know these machines firsthand; as I bought what I thought was a great deal. They are a novel machine in concept, and mechanically they aren’t too bad. The M3 performs admirably, and had far fewer problems than the Model 7, which I also have. The biggest problem for these machines was the candy manufacturers- products changed, and the machines were unable to keep up. At first Mini Snacker made a fortune selling shim kits to their customers, but as they become less effective as fun size bars dimensions changed like the wind, Mini Snacker folded in the early 2000’s. It is possible to get these units working, but it is a struggle that I gave up on. They simply aren’t worth the effort anymore. It is too bad, as they have properties of an excellent niche machine.
