You get what you pay for?

What I'm looking for is not a variation of expression. Rather, I'm looking for another instance in which one pays for food or beverage but choice is constrained, even though more than one option is on hand.

In this instance, my 25 cents entitled me to choose a gumball. Even though many gumball flavors were available and in full view, however, I didn't get to choose the flavor; that was left to chance. Can anyone supply a similar example?

That's more like it; thanks, Rich!

Are you kidding me? Surprises are great.I always loved gum ball machines. When I was a kid, green was my favorite color and I won't stop going back to the machine until I get the green one. I ended up walking home. :)
