At this very moment, the very fabric of your snacking future is being determined.
Granted, that might be an overly dramatic way of introducing the fact that Delta Air Lines is currently testing new snacks to toss into your gaping maw as it flies you at breakneck speeds to your next destination, but we're still excited any way.
You should get excited as well.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Kelly Yamanouchi reports on the status of the airline’s current examination of its snack offerings. Apparently, various fortunate travelers leaving the likes of Atlanta and Minneapolis have been given snacks not previously offered on Delta.
The new snacks include Emerald cashews, Snyder’s pretzels and NatureBox yogurt bars, but don’t worry about not getting your daily allotment of Biscoff cookies, because these were also handed out during the testing phase.
There is no word on whether these products will be what the airline goes with for the entirety of its fleet, but the AJC did speak with spokeswoman Catherine Sirna who explained that the tests “went well.”
Sirna continued to Yamanouchi that Delta, “received a lot of insightful feedback from customers.”
Back in February, TravelPulse explained that various perks would be returning to the likes of American, United and Delta.
At the time, Josh Lew explained that Delta remained steadfast to make sure its passengers remained satisfied in the tummy department: “United and American will be joining Delta in offering free snacks to fliers in every class. (It should be noted that Delta never dropped its in-flight snack service).”

In July, we noted that JetBlue would supersize its snack offerings with name brand delectables like Cheez-It crackers, Ocean Spray Craisins, PopCorners, Skeeter Nut-Free chocolate chip cookies and Terra Blues potato chips.
The savvy, modern traveler is over little bags of generic snacks that they toss back without a thought – especially when other brands offer more enticing selections.
Delta is onto something, because, well, cashews are delicious.
