Each week, my Meal of the Week feature examines an airline meal from my travels over the years. This may be a meal from earlier in the week or it may be a meal served over a decade ago.
My weekly Meal of the Week feature tends to focus on premium cabin dining. But today we are going to take a look at the contents of United’s “tapas” snack box.
This snack box is available for purchase on domestic flights over 1.5 hours and on Caribbean, Central American, and Canadian flights. The current cost is $10.
There is still a premium connection here. When I flew from Chicago to LA a couple weeks ago I was feeling quite ill, so I turned down dinner. But I did ask for a snack box, figuring it would be something new to review for the blog.
Last night, I opened the box.
- Breadstick crackers
- Dark chocolate sea salt caramel
- Flatbread crackers
- Parmesan peppercorn spread
And I proceeded to eat it…everything but thee chocolate and mints, since this was my “appetizer” before dinner.
I’ve had better bruschetta. Better cheese spread. Better hummus. But you know something? This is a pretty decent snack. And it has been since United first introduced it.
Then And Now
I actually reviewed the tapas snack box once in the past, shortly after it was introduced in 2010. Almost a decade later, the contents have not changed very much.

It’s still junk food, but of all the United snack boxes, I think this one is the best.
