New in-flight snacks coming to Delta

Passengers on Delta Air Lines flights will soon have some different snack options.

Delta is changing up its in-flight snacks again, adding almonds, different pretzel sticks and coconut granola bars to the choices starting in June. Biscoff fans, don't worry -- the cookies will remain on the list of choices.

But the three new options -- Squirrel brand almonds, Pretzel Perfection olive oil and sea salt pretzels and KIND oats and honey bars with toasted coconut -- are gluten-free and cater to "health-conscious customers and those with dietary restrictions," according to Delta.

Notably missing from the list are peanuts, which had long been a snack choice on Delta flights, serving as a nod to its home state's peanut-growing heritage.

But peanuts are not necessarily gone forever.
