Mezze Snack Box On easyJet Is A Winner
I found myself on easyJet this week and was hungry. While I had planned to order the margherita mini calzone, the stone baked bacon roll, or the ham & cheese sourdough toastie, all three sandwiches were no longer available by the time flight attendants reached my row…10. (Yes, hungry people indeed considering how many sandwiches I saw coming out of the oven…)
Holding back tears (I somewhat jest), I settled on the Karyatis mezze snack box for €6.50, which includes:
- green olives
- roasted red pepper dip
- rosemary crackers
My expectations were admittedly not high, but it turned out I may have been fortunate that the sandwiches were no longer available.
The olives were spiced with sea salt, olive oil, and herbs and were a tasty snack alone. Both the hummus and red pepper dip were tasty and the rosemary crackers were a prefect accompaniment (though I would have preferred if the crackers were larger).
Perhaps the biggest surprise was the baklava, which was terribly messy but delightfully delicious. The figs and raisins accompanied the flakey, buttery dough made for a perfect last few bites of the snack.
While I was originally upset all the sandwiches were sold out, I think I ended up with the better deal. If you find yourself flying easyJet this summer, do try the mezze snack box.
