Delta fliers will have more snacks to choose from as of next week, as the airline is scrapping its own branded snacks in favor of some familiar names.

It means no more Delta-brand, foil-wrapped peanuts and pretzels, which have been retired after "decades of service" as some fresh faces are flown in.

From Dec. 14, main cabins snacks will include Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels, Squirrel Brand Honey Roasted Peanuts, and NatureBox Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bars.

They will be joined by the Biscoff cookies, which were already in service.

The new line-up, Delta says, will mean "larger portions" as well as more variety for passengers, with Delta also pledging to change up its cabin snacks more frequently in future.

But which ones you can get will depend on where you're flying.

They're available on flights over 250 miles long, with passengers flying 251-599 miles getting a choice of either Biscoff cookies or Snyder's pretzels (they only got one option before).

If you're flying over 600 miles you'll have the option of all four new snacks, while international passengers will get this same choice plus an extra bag of pretzels or peanuts.

KTLA reported on Wednesday that Delta is also testing out a return of free meals for coach passengers traveling from coast-to-coast, with a trial run taking place on flights between New York and L.A./San Francisco.
