Popular Dutch snack returns to United

Sat Dec 29, 2018 4:17 pm

CHICAGO - When United stopped serving stroopwafels on domestic flights in June, this led to angry and disappointed reactions from the many enthusiasts. The company now has good news for them: the syrup waffle returns.

From January, United will serve the popular Dutch delicacies on flights that leave before a quarter to ten in the morning. The stroopwafels, made by Daelmans from Brabant, are also free for Economy passengers.

Popular
United started in 2015 with the distribution of stroopwafels. This used to be a fairly unknown snack in the United States, but thanks to the airline, the wafers are now very popular among Americans.


You are very lucky, United pasengiers.

I certainly missed those tasty Stroopwafels. UA certainly did a great advertisements for them, as I'm now buying them nonstop :cloudnine:

I had them on all four of my UA segments this summer, two mainline and two express. A surprisingly filling snack that has to be a joy from the caterer's perspective, as the required space for storage of this micro-thin product must be ridiculously small.

However, Delta's biscoff cookies still win in my book.

"I'll have the cannabis stroopwafel, please."

Give it a couple more years, it'll happen...

I’m thrilled they are bringing them back! Even though it’s a small thing, it goes a long way to help the impressions of those in Y and Y+
We are all so tired of airlines removing stuff!

Its only for 3-months. UA is rotating morning items each menu cycle, as not everyone enjoys those sugar infused stroopwafels.

They have even found their way into the Domestic F snack basket on AA. I was hesitant to try them at first, but they are delicious!

And with every little cookie having 10g of fat, that's a good thing.

Only on a.net is it believed people select flight and airlines based on being handed a disk of processed corn syrup and flour. Which, by the way, can be purchased in bulk for pennies at most grocery stores and big box retailers.

I have not compared nutrition facts, but based on taste I suspect the maple cookies (current breakfast snack) have as much or more sugar.
I can't decide whether I miss the tulip or the bowling shoe more

I'm sorry, I know it's a joke and all.
But it's so sad that the world views the Dutch as big potheads and Amsterdam is this liberal drug capital. 99% of the stoned-out-of-their-mind people in Amsterdam are tourist. Maybe a lot of people have tried weed once, but it's not special here, nearly none of the people use it daily/weekly/monthly and the main thing: it is not a big deal here and people are annoyed that the world views us that way.

It's just the cross you get to bear.

In my case I was in a (current) EU country recently and everyone who heard my American accent started venting on me about a certain orange-haired politician as if I had some sort of blame for his existence.

In the US we have a saying, "grin and bear it", and said that to myself a lot.

Maybe you will shed your cross as more and more places vote in liberal marijuana policies, and maybe 2022 will bring a change I can be happy about.
