Northwest Airlines has been dealing with some disgruntled customers after it announced it would switch from passing free pretzel packs to peanuts. The commotion didn't come from passionate pretzel-lovers or over-zealous peanut-haters, it came from people allergic to the controversial nuts, but it got me thinking about what would be a good substitute for the typical airplane snack.
Pretzels wouldn't be a bad alternative, but it doesn't solve the overwhelming thirst issue that results from salty snacks. You're a paying customer, so if you had your say, what should airlines pass instead of peanuts? Or is nothing better than peanuts, in your opinion?
