I should also correct myself - as evidenced by the chicken plate, the "Snack" GDS code can mean a "light" version of any of the three main meals - the lunchtime one is indeed a cold plate (dinner is hot). But all three are a significant step up from the "Refreshments" snack basket.

And I realized the answer to OP's question. MCO/IAH must bucket as "2h20 to 2h30". The use of flight duration is incredibly misleading as it is not about the actual block time of the flight, but rather the "average" block time of the service, which makes distance a much more reliable predictor.
