RIP Delta Snack Mix in Domestic F

A flight attendant advised me today that the Perfection Snacks-brand Snack Mix is being phased out in favor of cheez-it’s. Certainly some may consider this an upgrade, but for those you of you like me who loved it — savor it while you can.

Cheez-its are certainly an upgrade, but I liked the snack mix as well. Glad they change it up from time to time. An FA told me this week that they're also dumping peanuts for almonds. That, to me, is not an upgrade but I'll get over it.

On the bright side, it looks like they ditched those dismal pita chips and brought back the kettle cooked lays (not as good as the old kettle cooked option, but better than the pita chips for sure).

I like the variety in the snack mix, but I can see Cheez-its as a step up.
Funny, I like the pita chips however, when I need a thick leathery cardboard snack.
My favorite these days is those Michel et Augustin square cookies with chocolate in the middle, yum.

Ha! Consumer preferences are interesting (and makes this hard for DL because a survey would be mixed)...

I like the snack mix though don't hate Cheez-its so I'll live.

On the flip side I love pita chips and despise the idea of swapping back to regular chips of any kind

Thank goodness, those pita chips were the worst chips I've ever had. DL must have gotten a really good deal on them. Only bright side, pita chip probably don't need an expiration date, because they always taste stale.

I haven't eaten Cheez Its for maybe 40 years. Got tired of them as a kid. My dad ate them all the time. Give me the snack mix.

I think the snack mix is great!

Has anyone else noticed the peppermint Oreos are gone, and they now have these chocolate covered pretzels?

If the snack mix components didn't all taste like they were made out of MDF, I'd have been a much bigger fan. It's possible to do gluten free snacks well, but Perfection is... not living up to their name, IMHO.

The flavoring mix was decent, but the components it was applied to were sorely lacking. I'm glad this has rotated out for something a bit more classic.

To be honest, I miss the days when Delta was paying off the old NWA Pepsico contract by serving Sun Chips in the snack basket. Would love to see those return in a future rotation!

I liked the Stacey's pita chips. They seemed less greasy, less salty, and more filling than the kettle chips (which I also like, especially with a lunch sandwich).

I never liked the pita chips, but the kettle chips were great! I guess as everyone has different tastes, DL cycles its snacks.

Count me in the "pro almond" camp. Love the blue squirrel ones they used to have.

I had Sun Chips in my snack basket out of LGA earlier this week - perhaps they are back? it was the Garden Salsa variety. I remember when I first started flying DL regularly (having switched from US Airways) both carriers prominently featured Cape Cod chips as a snack basket staple for many years - I do miss those.

Yay on the Sun Chips! Pretty much any flavor!
