Bringing airplane snacks can be quite difficult because there are a lot of rules, and every country has its own. But to help you out a bit, here are some tips you can follow to make life a little easier when packing snacks for a flight.

  1. Pack snacks with a long shelf life
  2. Pack something that does not fall apart easily
  3. Be considerate of other passengers and try to pack snacks that do not have a strong smell
  4. Pack different snacks so that you have a choice when you are on the flight
  5. Before you leave from home, check if there are rules about bringing food to your destination. Different countries have different rules.

You might not know about this cookie but trust us when we say that this is one of the best airplane snacks you could bring. Let us explain why.

What are Stroopwafels?

Stroopwafels are a typical Dutch cookie that has been around for quite some time now. The cookie is made with two wafers with some syrup in the middle (also called ‘’stroop’’ in Dutch). This cookie can be eaten any time of the day and is especially tasty when you place it on top of your hot coffee or tea so that the syrup in the middle melts just a little bit. So the next time you order coffee or thee in an airplane, bring some Stroopwafels and we are sure it will beat all other airplane snacks you ever had.

Stroopwafels in the sky

Since 2019 United Airlines have been serving our very own Daelmans Stroopwafels on their morning flights. This has been such a hit that when they stopped serving them, people revolted and demanded that the Stroopwafels would be back on their breakfast menu on the plane. After some time, United Airlines acknowledged their customers and reintroduced the Daelmans Stroopwafels on their menu. And even better, they now server them not only during breakfast but you can get them any time of the day! Do you need any more prove why Stroopwafels are great airplane snacks.
