Delta Air Lines is upgrading its free snacks on flights and switching to yogurt bars, honey roasted peanuts and brand-name pretzels.
One thing that isn't changing in the snack lineup: The well-known Biscoff cookies, which are staying.
The free snacks are for flights longer than 250 miles. Depending on the length of the flight, travelers might get either Snyder's of Hanover pretzels or Squirrel brand honey roasted peanuts, or also have a choice of NatureBox apple cinnamon yogurt bars or Biscoff. The changes take effect Dec. 14.
The Atlanta-based airline said the new offerings have "larger portions and more variety." Delta also plans to change its mix of snacks more often in the future based on customer feedback.
The carrier had tested cashews and yogurt bars as snacks on some flights earlier this year. The Georgia Peanut Commission at the time said Georgia peanut growers are “proud of our special relationship” with Delta “and we’ve looked for ways over the years to maintain and grow it.”
Delta said it has set up vending machines in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle to offer free samples of the new snacks.
