A couple of weeks ago I shared my rant about the American Airlines cookie.
First world problems, right? If a cookie is going to be what they serve as dessert even on dinner flights, then I’d hope they would make it the cookie that actually used to be gooey, moist, and delicious …
There even used to be a choice of cookies. But they replaced my American Airlines cookie with an inedible piece of cake shaped like a (msaller) cookie.
At first I accepted the cookie, took a bite, and stopped. After a few times realizing it wasn’t the vagaries of a particular flight, batch, or flight attendant I simply started declining the cookie.
Last night flying American I finished my meal and the flight attendant brought out what I assumed would be cookies. Instead it was more of a scone. A chocolate chip scone.
Now, I’m not a huge fan of scones. At least on their own and without accompaniments of any kind. But at least it wasn’t the NewCookie.
