I’ve been greatly enjoying my first class mixed nuts from American Airlines over the last few weeks…they make a perfect midday meal. Now two additional varieties are available from United Airlines, including one with my favorite kind of nut.
Surplus United Airlines Nuts Now On Sale
Last month, I wrote about discounted mixed nuts available from GNS Foods, a long-time Texas provider of premium cabin nuts to American Airlines. Two blends were available.
The “first class” blend contained:
The “aloha” blend contained:
- piña colada pecans
Those are still available and remain discounted.
But today GNS Foods discounted surplus United mixed nuts as well. Available are both the first class (called “elite status” nut mix) and Hawaii mix. Prices are very reasonable. Do not that unlike the American Airlines nuts, shipping is not included and is pricey if you don’t buy in bulk.
The “elite status” nut mix sells for $7.99 for a two-pound bag. It contains cashews and almonds. The Hawaii mix contains cashews, almonds, and macadamia nuts (my favorite nut) and sells for $10.99 for a two-pound bag.
Kim Peacock, owner of GNS Foods, blames falling nut prices for the sale:
“Not only are we left with bags of mixes, we are also left with the raw ingredients and ingredient contracts from the suppliers. We were asked to maintain United’s costs on their mixes for one year. In order to do that, we had to sign raw ingredient contracts for one year. Now we’re left with these contracts. If nut prices rise, then you can sell the contract at a profit. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened. Nut prices fell, and the raw ingredient suppliers are looking to us to make up the difference! The other question is, ‘Where to go with all of these nuts?”
You can buy the nuts here.
GNS Foods, a family-run, woman-owned business, has over 30,000 pounds of surplus nuts. You can stock up on United’s standard and Hawaiian blend…while supplies last.
