I am so jealous! I have never seen these excellent selections at my most frequently visited UC @ IAD, FLL, and EWR.

I would like to thank the LAS 4-year old that put Rice Krispy treats in the UC.

Classic, orginal Goldfish are not part of the recall.

This is UA. They probably got them cheap.

Nothing says I've made it as a (semi)productive adult quite like pounding pints of Coors Light and plastic cups of Goldfish! When I feel like being fancy I have an Oreo and a glass of Prosecco for desert

Is this DEN?

Last time I was there they didn't have the Swedish Fish, which was disappointing.

If you're not a fan of the Oreos, if you walk over to the other side of the club they usually have very good choc-chip cookies instead.

If you find which 4 year old it was, please be sure to thank them!

I forget which European airline, perhaps, LH, regularly stocks gummy candies in the lounge.

take a closer look at the goldfish jar.

I see an inch of stale crushed up crumbs, no doubt having collected at the bottom while they just top off the old container every few days.

LH definitely has Gummi bears in the lounges. On a blog where someone went to the First Class Terminal in FRA, each flavor bear was in its own bin so you could make your own mix!

These treats look good to me! I think AA only had salty snacks like pretzels and chips, I would have enjoyed some Swedish Fish!

Was thinking the same thing.
Would get pretty nasty if it ever gets consumed down to that level.
Goldfish dust anyone?

"...every few days." You are being too kind there.

Here's a pic this morning from LH FRA Senator lounge. More choices, but not sure if it's any better. I don't eat snacks so UA/LH selection makes no difference to me.

It's LH. Always cracks me up to see the number of men in business suits that are pounding back the Haribo.

Regardless, I commend this four-year-old on their choice of snacks, though I will state for the record that Original Goldfish are vastly superior to this Cheddar nonsense.
Surely you can tell by the picture
On the Goldfish issue, I hope they aren't affected by the recent recall
