Pepperidge Farm cookies are in...

Hi Everyone, effective May 1, we’ll be replacing Russell Stover Almond Delight and Pecan Delight candies from all of our flights and will be replacing them with Pepperidge Farm cookies. It’s a small detail, but we're making this change as a direct result of your feedback. Very rarely do we see consensus when it comes our meals, but every once in a while there’s a unanimous trend. The cheese calzone was one (long gone) and this was yet another. Enjoy!

No more Almond Delight...Excellent! So, uh, how long before CO ditches the Jim Beam in the PCs and opts for real Bourbon? I can drink my membership fee back on Beam, but the process could be a bit smoother.

I think my dentist will be very pleased as well!

I also noticed Pepperidge Farm cookies in the HNL PClub - is this something we can expect to see more of as well?

I actually didn't mind the Russell Stover Candies (sorry Scott) and I never thought the Calzone was that bad...must be all you Texans who don't know that EYE-Talian Food.

Wow, guess that means that the Russell Stover Almond Delight I got on my lunch tray this past Monday on ATL-IAH was probably the last one I'll see. I chose not to eat it of course. There is one good thing about those candies -- they are far easier to just leave on the tray than the cookies. The cookies are much harder to pass up!

Hallelujah! I was wondering whether I was just lucky or it was really gone

Thanks Scott--excellent move!

I didn't mind those Calzones, but those pita bread things are much better--I think that's what they are!

The end of my F dessert nemesis. Time to short Russell Stover. Now that CO has cancelled the contract I cannot imagine how they'll fill that drop in sales.

Perhaps they can get Leos to consult with Chelsea about Italian food.
