Delta has announced it is retiring its branded peanuts and pretzels as its Main Cabin snack offering.
As of December 14, those snacks will make way for Snyder's of Hanover pretzels, Squirrel Brand Honey Roasted peanuts and NatureBox Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bars. The airline's signature Biscoff cookies will remain in service.
Delta said that the snacks would offer larger portions and more variety for customers, and that it would refresh its Main Cabin snacks more frequently in the future based on 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.
Additionally, customers on international flights will receive a choice of Snyder's of Hanover pretzels or Squirrel Brand Honey Roasted peanuts.
To celebrate the new snacks, Delta has set up branded vending machines in Los Angeles, Seattle and New York to offer complimentary samples to customers.
The new snacks complement other enhancements Delta has recently announced in the Main Cabin including upgraded blankets with woven fabric in a sensory blue hue, complimentary beer, wine and spirits on long-haul international flights, sleep kits on long-haul international flights and more.
