7-Eleven's mashed potato Slurpee machine is Thanksgiving on demand

At the push of two buttons, you can have mashed potatoes covered in chicken gravy (here's video from a 7-Eleven in Singapore of how it works). I'll admit when I first came across this story, I envisioned a window into a swirling white cloud of creamy potatoes. The reality is less appealing — powdered potatoes behind the instructions waiting for hot water to be added to them. It does lend more credence to the idea that 7-Eleven may one day simply feature a wall of foods shot out of a straw to be eaten with a straw or one massive machine that dispenses a three-course meal, from nachos to pudding.

Is this Thanksgiving on demand or simply the evolution of our apparent aversion to chewing?
