Because you'd fill the coin box in record time and the murder rate would be really high.

Imagine you are behind someone paying for a $1.75 bag of cookies in the machine with pennies. Murder rates would be too high. Better one or two people are hungry.

Then they should have a penny changer off to the side because I totally have tried this before and was displeased to not be able to get my favorite Chex Mix because I had five pennies and not a nickel.

If I'm in a drive thru,I usually just drop 'em out the window. If in a convenience store,I just put them in the "Leave a penny,Need a penny" cup near the register.

Pennies are one of the most useless things I can think of.
