The demise of my nemesis


I’ve posted previously about my dining nemesis on Continental, the Almond Delight. So I was rather excited to learn that the Almond Delight was being traded in for Pepperidge Farm cookies as the after dinner snack on meals in first class. Needless to say, I was more than a little disappointed to find that dinner tonight on the plane was served with the Almond Delight rather than cookies. I am not eating either one on account of it being Passover, but I certainly am feeling a bit less confident in whether the Almond Delight really is gone from Continental or not. On the plus side, no cheese soup and plenty of wine, so things aren’t all bad in the air.

Apparently I should’ve read the fine print a bit more closely. The change doesn’t take effect until May 1. So I guess I have to get back on a plane next month to celebrate the end of the era.
