Take a look at the expiration date. I just ate 2 packs of expired peanuts (I didn't realize it at the time.) Yes it's only 2 day's but heck. Expiration date 12/31/07!!

I had some on 1/1 on the way home from EWR to SNA. They tasted fine but I didn't look at the date. Now I am wondering.

Two OPTIONS...

SUE or COMPENSATION!

Growing up in Virginia, what DL serves can't be considered peanuts.


*On a seperate note, I just love the sarcasm that the board now drips with to start 2008.

Maybe Delta is using the Skymiles award availability calendar system to forecast when peanuts are expiring?

I hear you can trade in two packs of expired peanuts for one pack of unexpired peanuts but only on certain flights where they know they aren't going to need them.



Said with love, of course. At least we get peanuts!

I think i'll pass on both options but if they are still expired on my next 2 trips in mid January and last week of January I may have issues. I love peanuts.

I had some on 12/28 that saved you from eating more expired peanuts. Had a chuckle about eating the near expired peanuts and maybe that would encourage me to cut off (like I have scissors!) and save the greasy 25 cents off coupon to get more. Has anyone ever clipped that coupon, or does Fisher's comp the peanuts as marketing to a trapped audience?

Fischer has a day-old factory outlet store not far from me. I've been meaning to stop by so I can use my 25 cents off coupon. Maybe they sell expired DL peanuts there?

BTW, the factory outlet is also close to ORD/Elgin TRACON. Do you think they feed the controllers old peanuts? That could explain a lot of things.

From the FAA ORD TRACON page:
However, once inside, you feel the kinetic energy, dedication, and pride of the air traffic controllers that provide unequalled service to the National Airspace System (NAS).
Yes. Eating old peanuts definitely makes you feel the kinetic energy. A real gut feeling.

I had some peanuts today on my flights, and am now wondering if it is the coupon that expires 12/31/07 and not the actual peanuts. I should have brought a pack with me, but I think it might be just the coupon.
