Delta will launch new in-flight snacks on December 14

Delta Air Lines announced yesterday that it will upgrade in-flight snacks beginning next week. Gone are Delta-branded peanuts and pretzels replaced by branded snacks from Hanover, Squirrel Brand and NatureBox. Those great Biscoff cookies aren't going anywhere, fortunately.

From the airline's press release:

After decades of service, Delta Air Lines-branded peanuts and pretzels are stepping down as the airline’s Main Cabin snack offering. With those snacks’ retirement set for Dec. 14, Delta is unveiling its improved onboard lineup including Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels, Squirrel Brand Honey Roasted peanuts and NatureBox Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bars. The airline’s beloved signature Biscoff cookies will remain in service.

The enhancement will feature larger portions and more variety for customers while supporting Delta’s mission of continuing to invest in the overall on-board experience. The airline will also refresh its Main Cabin snacks more frequently in the future based on direct customer feedback.
...
The complimentary snacks will be available in the Main Cabin on flights over 250 miles. Customers on shorter flights within North America - from 251 to 599 miles - will now receive a choice of Biscoff cookies or Snyder’s of Hanover® pretzels, whereas customers were only offered one choice previously. Flights over 600 miles will now offer four choices, instead of three, offering Snyder’s of Hanover® pretzels, Squirrel Brand Honey Roasted peanuts, a NatureBox Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bar or Biscoff cookies.

While airline snacks in Economy are typically nothing to get excited about, it's nice to see that Delta is working to at least improve that part of its service. So long as they keep the cookies I am happy!
