Southwest brings back peanuts, sells them online

Published on : Friday, September 27, 2019

Southwest Airlines has recently decided to bring back its popular snacks for shoppers at its online store, which it had discontinued giving out complimentary peanuts in August 2018.

 

And despite the seemingly steep price, the nuts have already sold out.

 

“Missing the Southwest peanuts?” the airline wrote on social media. “We’ve got ‘em right here. Introducing the newest item available at Southwest the Store: the peanut lunchbox, complete with two bags of our legendary Southwest peanuts.”

 

Each lunchbox also retails for $29 at the airline’s online store, but that didn’t stop fans from gobbling up the inventory right away.

 

A message posted to the Southwest Airlines online store reads, “Due to popular demand, our peanut tins are currently on back order. We are now accepting pre-orders, and expect delivery within two to three weeks.”

 

A representative for Southwest confirmed that the peanuts are back-ordered for three to four weeks, with new stock expected in mid-October.

 

Southwest originally announced plans to stop offering peanuts back in July 2018, detailing in a statement that it was in the best interest of passengers with allergies.

 

“To ensure the best on-board experience for everyone, especially for customers with peanut-related allergies, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue serving peanuts on all flights,” an airline official wrote.

 

“We hope that our free pretzels (and the wonderful portfolio of free snacks on longer flights), served along with our legendary Southwest Hospitality, will please customers who might be nostalgic or sad to see peanuts go,” the spokesperson said.
