That alone would be pretty awesome, but it gets better… much better. While the rest of the world would cook said French fries in one form of polyunsaturated hate crime or another, this machine uses rendered beef fat, otherwise known as tallow. The thing that makes tallow special is its super-high smoke point of 420°F – which makes it particularly well-suited to deep frying and makes everything, in my humble opinion, taste and smell that little bit more awesome.
For those who are not familiar with my writing or this site, I live in Japan, where there is a vending machine for just about any food, drink or perversion that floats your boat. The food vending machines, however, leave a lot to be desired. Essentially, all they do is hit a frozen, barely-palatable substance that vaguely resembles the image shown on the picture with microwaves, then drop it (in its soggy cardboard container) out of a slot. It is the sort of thing that you might eat if there is absolutely no other option. The Belgian freedom fries, on the other hand, are something that I could see myself eating on a semi-regular basis.
