Ok, this is one of the more ridiculous rants (blast away), but the united club seems to have done away with chocolate covered pretzels.... Very sad indeed!!!

I've only seen them once in a communal bowl at a UC somewhere, seemed everyone reached in to grab some with their hands.... I thought it was kinda gross.

They switch out the snacks occasionally. They'll be back.

They would always get clogged in the dispensers for me. You had to spin the handle back and forth 30 times just to shake out enough pretzels for a snack. Good riddance.

I'd like to see them bring back the yogurt raisins, personally.

That's what I just had in LAX 6, as well as IAH C South. Your wish is granted...

But free ones obviously taste way better!!

The ones I saw were always in a bowl with a scoop so it wasn't too gross. I've been seeing chocolate raisins though.

If I decide not to keep my Chase Club card I think I'll give this as a reason.

Only if there is a scoop and people use it.

Is that what that is for? I usually just put my face in the bowl.

Although I must say it is much easier with the pretzels than when I had to try to put my mouth on yogurt raisins machine and spin the little handle at the same time while all scrunched down.

Just had some at SFO Terminal 3 on Tuesday. I think availability depends on the location.

No, the scoop is there so that you will have an easier time shoveling the pretzels into your gullet once your head is in the bowl...

I saw them for the first time at the SAN United Club today. I agree that they clog up the dispenser.
