What happens when most flights are grounded and airlines stop serving meals in first class? The answer is a surplus of first class mixed nuts. But you if you love these delicious treats you can now stock up…at half off normal prices. That’s a shell-shocking price for mixed nuts.
Flight Cancellations Create First Class Nuts Surplus
Kim Peacock shares the problem:
“I have 50,000 pounds of nuts American Airlines and United didn’t want! We’re feeling sad. We’re sitting on a lot of nuts.”
She works for GNS Foods and GreatNuts.com, the supplier of mixed nuts for American Airlines for over 30 years.
But with flights cancelled and meal service cut, there’s a bit of surplus, to put it mildly.
Buy Your Favorite First Class Mixed Nuts For Less Than Half Price
You can buy both blends of mixed nuts currently offered on American Airlines at less than half normal prices. The “first class” blend contains:
The “aloha” blend contains:
- piña colada pecans
You can buy as little as one bag, but six 1.25 pound bags will set you back $48.90, which works out to $6.52 per pound. That’s an incredible price considering there are pecans and pistachios in the mix. You can also mix and match if you like the aloha blend (I personally don’t…).
The problem is even worse. With baseball stadiums also closed to the public, peanuts are also not selling. As we love mixed nuts in our home, even as meal replacements, we decided to give GreatNuts some business today.
But I think Peackock gets it right when she questions why AA can serve a fruit and cheese plate, but not mixed nuts, which GNS has offered in individual bags:
“Yet on my last flight in first class, I was served a cheese-cracker-fruit-chocolate tray complete with plasticware. However, they can’t keep nuts?”
Sadly, nuts may be a long-term casualty of the pandemic. But you can stock up now at a very good price.
Are you going to stock up now on mixed nuts?
