United Airlines is ditching my favorite onboard snack for Oreo cookies. I feel like crying.
United Introduces Oreo Thins
Effective March 1st United will introduce Oreo Thin cookies on all mainline and United Express flights. These new cookies will replace Biscoff cookies, currently one of three complimentary snacks offered onboard all United flights.
Consequently, the following free snacks will be available onboard:
- Oreo Thins
You may not see these cookies immediately, though. United will first exhaust its supply of Biscoff cookies before introducing the new Oreo Thin cookies. Catering has been instructed not to mix Biscoff cookies with Oreo Thins, so don’t except seeing four choices onboard for the first few days of March.
Fear Not: I Predict Biscoffs Will Return
You might recall that in 2018 United suddenly pulled the highly-popular stroopwafels from the onboard complimentary snack menu in favor of Byrd’s Maple Wafers.
Six months later, the stroopwafels returned.
I have a feeling we will see the popular Biscoff cookies once again.
While “crying” may have been an exaggeration, I do love my Biscoff cookies. I hope that after a few months those cinnamon sugar biscuits will make a comeback, just as the stroopwafels did.
Who’s looking forward to Oreo cookies onboard your United flight?
