New CRC Snacks in LAX

Just got to the CRC in LAX, and saw a few things for the first time (stuff they didn't have in ATL earlier today)...

White Cheddar "Cheese Food" (similar to the stuff in the Worldclubs)

"Hummus to Go" -- a bizzarely-packaged hummus product that I haven't yet tried (found a picture here)

Some new types of seasoned crackers

They also have all the usual trail mixes and snack mixes. Not sure how this awkward-looking tube of hummus will taste, but hey -- I like new options.

The white cheddar and seasoned crackers are nothing new....the hummus on the other hand....

Once I got over the fact that it was coming out of a squeeze tube, it actually wasn't half bad... I guess it's the garbanzo version of "easy cheese".

Haven't tried the snacks but....

Last time I was in the LAX CRC they were making bloody mary's by hand --- no premixed stuff ... wish other CRCs would follow suit

Space hummus.

I like the pre-mixed pitcher. Saves the embarassment of asking for a bloody mary in the morning.

At ATL today: yogurt, muffins, biscotti. It was like being in the US Club and the Admirals Club at the same time in terms of food.

At the ATL BusinessElite Lounge, I was told several days ago that they only served mojitos (premixed) only from 4pm to 7pm. Is this also the policy in the CRCs? Has it always been like this? Why?

Now, this seems like a real improvement...identical to US clubs and certainly appreciated. If only we could get bagels like CO and NW, and then we would be set!

Yes, I was told this a month ago in a regular CRC lounge. Apparently it is an official "happy hour drink." Hey, I don't make the rules here...just reporting what I heard.

Who's embarrassed? I asked for one on my flight from CLT to ATL this morning that left at 7:30 AM so was drinking by 7:05

CRC in Boston on 5/28 had an olive bar -- 3 jars of olives -- 2 green, stuffed with either feta cheese or bleu cheese (delicious), and some black ones as well. VERY good since I love me some olives

Oh, the hummus ain't bad either with those crackers. And there was packaged white cheddar cheese.

Yum ^

Last Friday B25 in ATL had the olives and hummus. Yesterday morning, the same CR had yogurt, now that is a morning improvement I hope they keep.

I'm at the JFK T3 CRC and they only have Biscoff and the spicy/gross nut mix. I can't believe they aren't upgrading food system wide since people now have to pay. Given that I don't drink, I would not pay for a CRC membership.

Until they start serving Asian business lounge type food, then no paid CRCs for me.

I saw same at BOS CRC a few days earlier. I was pleasantly surprised by the hummus, which was very good on the little flatbread crackers they have. It was pretty large for a single serve package (although it might have been labeled as two servings, I forget).
