YTo me as electrical engineer it's a lesson that no technology is perfect, but we are working on it. Chocolate coin proof coin-star machines are just around the corner. - e-inspired 15:36, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

That's a special contribution from an expert with no sense of direction. I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk) 06:59, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Candies do have monetary value. You buy them. 09:25, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Could enough coins be exchaged for a bunny? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Yes, if you melted them and poured the melted chocolate into a mold...

Has anyone actually tested whether chocolate coins will break Coinstar machines? I'll try it when I'm an adult. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I had the feeling that the machine opened and ate the chocolate coin ... (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

To be fair, Coinstar doesn't do so hot with regular coins- though that has more to do with the habits of the coin owners. 14:13, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Moderatly certain this had nothing to do with any anti-theft system, just a standard error beep that pretty much all machines with hardware for beep codes give. One long beep being the typical obvious error message, that doesn't tell you crap about what the actual error is (might be followed up with a beep code). Unless coinstar machines give just one loud long beep if you trigger the anti-theft mechanism.
