In general, we can agree: airplane food sucks. Many of us, Gordon Ramsey included, refuse to eat it at all. So, it’s a rare occasion that living, breathing, eating travelers are emotionally invested in an airline’s in-flight snack. But after United Airlines announced this week that it would start serving beloved Stroopwafel cookies again, people were not just emotional, but downright passionate.
“We’re starting 2019 on a sweet note -- the stroopwafel will be back in the snack rotation starting in January!” the airline announced on Twitter.
United introduced the Stroopwafel as an onboard snack in 2015. The Dutch treat, traditionally served with tea or coffee, is bookended by two delicate waffle wafer cookies, squishing a neat layer of gooey caramel between them.
