You Can Buy A Tin Of Southwest Airlines Peanuts

People love their free snacks on planes. Who could blame us? Passengers on United Airlines flights love the Biscoff cookies, and then there’s the cult of the Stroopwafel, the chewy cookie that went away and then came back again, much to customers’ relief. For Southwest Airlines, it’s all about the peanuts.

Whether Team Lightly Salted or Team Honey Roasted, Southwest passengers looked forward to their bags of peanuts. That excitement stopped in 2018, though, when the airline officially discontinued the snack after many airlines had been pulling back on nuts due to the allergies that some passengers onboard may have. Aware of how much their customers miss the peanuts, Southwest has begun selling them in their online store, Today reported. The initial offering was so limited that the nuts are already sold out, but fear not: They shall return this fall.

There’s one big thing you should know if you’re planning on snagging some Southwest peanuts—or 29 things, to be exact. Compared to free peanuts on a plane, ordering these nuts online will set you back $29. You do get two 10-ounce bags, one lightly salted and one honey-roasted, inside a retro Southwest tin lunchbox. So, if you’re into memorabilia as much as snacking, the price tag could be worth it. It’s a piece of the Southwest legacy, a reusable lunchbox, and hey, it’s got the peanuts.

There are other peanut-related items for sale on the website for real peanut-heads, like a (very niche) peanut-shaped burping cloth, a peanut makeup case, a peanut power bank and peanut pillows.

If you want to make sure you get your hands on one of those tins stuffed with peanuts when they’re back, click “Save for Later” on the product page and you’ll be notified when they’re back in stock.
