There was a bit of a dust up last week as ‘ginnybakes’ falsely claimed to have been named the exclusive cookie of American Airlines.
I had never heard of ginnybakes, I have now, perhaps their little white lie of a press release did its job. They are in fact onboard American, as part of the airline’s refreshed snack basket.
And yesterday I got to try ginnybakes, which describes itself as “organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher” and thus may have the least appetizing marketing of any food product, ever.
Here are some of the new items from the snack basket. The fig bar is a new flavor.
Troubling though are these cookies, which do not replace the warm chocolate chip cookie onboard American and thus are not the ‘exclusive’ cookie of American Airlines.
See, here’s the ingredients.
That’s 13 uses of the word ‘organic’. And the cookies tasted like a coconut-flavored cross between a granola bar and McDonalds cookies. Meanwhile, eating ‘THINaddictives’ does not actually make one thin.
