Some airlines say they're getting squeezed by a shortage of limes.

A spokesman for United Airlines, which is part of United Continental Holdings, says the airline is currently flying with only 15% to 20% of its usual stock of limes.

"If the caterers are light on limes when they supply our flights, then we'll serve lemons," said Rahsaan Johnson. "We've asked them to continue to provide limes where available, but to cater more lemons until lime supplies normalize," he added.

Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

Spring! Finally! Farmers markets are in full effect, boasting gorgeous and colorful fruits and vegetables straight from the ground, the trees, the bushes.

So this seems like a good time to take stock of all the awesome things you can now get straight from a machine. Asia and Europe have been way ahead of the United States in terms of vending machine cuisine, but now we’re starting to catch up. Happily, a lot of this food is, if not exactly fresh from the soil, at least frequently refreshed inside the vending machine case.
 
Take this quiz to reinforce just how rich America’s vending machine bounty now is.

Which following foods are available from vending machines in the U.S.?

1. Caviar
2. Salad
3. Pizza
4. Champagne
5. Cupcakes
6. Pie
7. Wine
8. Ice cream
9. Burritos
10. French Fries
 
Good luck!
