Southwest Airlines is bringing back its trademark snack. Sort of. The airline, which stopped serving free packs of peanuts a year ago due to passenger allergy concerns, this month started selling peanuts online and at its company store in Dallas.
You won't be able to buy one of the tiny, half-ounce packages that was served on the planes, however. Ever the marketer, Southwest is selling the peanuts inside a silver lunch box emblazoned with the design from the peanut packages and Southwest's logo.
Inside: Two 10-ounce packages of peanuts, one each of the types Southwest rotated when it served them on board: lightly salted and honey roasted. (Rabid honey roasted fans hated it when it was lightly salted season and vice versa.)
