Another UA Snack Box
Wow. I didn't think that they would actually deliver a snack box to us in mid-flight today. And interestingly, the box included some instant noodles, while the flight attendants came by with kettles of hot water. Actually, it wasn't that hot...the noodles had trouble cooking and hence ended up a bit crunchy.
But they did include a "Chinese" almond cookie, which is something that I haven't seen in years. If memory serves, these are actually more American than Chinese (right up there along with fortune cookies), nor is there much of an almond taste save for the little sliver of the nut shoved into the center, but the buttery lightness of it is the welcome appeal.
