In February, United Airlines decided to announce a change to its lineup of in-flight snack options.

“Biscoff cookies will be replaced by…Oreo Thins.”
Before we discuss this disgraceful move, we would like to assure you Delta Bischoff cookies are here to stay.
Yep, still got ’em. pic.twitter.com/CmZWjx7kyD

According to CNN, spokesperson for United Airlines Andrea Hiller said “As promised, we continue to switch up our snacks for variety. Our customer-favorite stroopwafel is staying in the mix and we’re adding Oreo Thins in March.”
Your stroopwafel is trash and so are Oreo Thins. As a traveler, we expect consistency, or at the very least a stronger effort to make the experience better.
Oreos? Really United? That’s the best you got? Not to mention thin Oreos…the wimpy, crumbly cookie that could never live up to the Lotus Biscoff name.
Delta airlines put Biscoff cookies on the map, since the 1980s, so much so, they have their own branded ones, you know with their logo in the middle. There is no denying, regardless of how you feel about Biscoff, you can count on Delta. And if cookies aren’t your pick, the Cheez-It’s will be there.
Despite their association with Delta, though, Biscoff cookies are also found on WestJet, Alaska Airlines, and American Airlines. The fact that United brought Oreos (thin ones) onboard, replacing Biscoff, is a true testament to who the airline really is.
