What is it?
If you haven’t already seen it trending all over the internet, the Sprinkles ATM is a machine that literally dispenses cupcakes. The ATM is connected to the store, and there is a working staff inside making sure you get the best quality cupcakes. Besides cupcakes, Sprinkles also offers cookies and ice creams.
The first time I had ever heard about this ATM was when I was on a trip in New York with my mom. We were walking down the street and we saw people getting cupcakes from this cute little machine. I wanted my mom to get one, not expecting that there would be any allergy-friendly options - then I saw the vegan option! I ordered it, watched it come through the little door, and it was the best cupcake I have ever had.
Even though Sprinkles cannot guarantee there being no risk of cross contamination, I spoke with a Sprinkles employee about the precautions they take to keep the allergy options separate from the other products. Some of the things include:
- There are pans and baking sheets dedicated to the dietary cupcakes to reduce any risk of cross contamination.
- There is a separate allergy free frosting used for the gluten free and vegan cupcakes.
- The cupcakes are kept away from the other cupcakes during preparation so they don’t come in contact with each other.
- Sprinkles uses sugar decorations to label dietary cupcakes so there is no confusion.
