  1. Gah!!! Makes me all kinds of thirsty just looking at it.

  2. Shinkuhadoken says:

    I’m curious to see if I could spot the peanuts at all in their regular packet of salted peanuts.

  3. Bink Binkerson says:

    They like their oversalted food in Jeebusland.

  4. joe k. says:

    Ahh just like Delta, the airline whose motto used to be the non-ironic: “Delta gets you there!”

  5. Mari Lwyd says:

    The peanuts are lightly salted. It’s the salt that’s heavily salted.

  6. yt says:

    It’s a misprint. Should read: Lightly Peanut’d Salt

  7. Jason Sutor says:

    I’ve had them before and that powder isn’t all salt. Its some sort of peanut dust. Either some sort of cornstarch or the peanuts get a good rubbing in the package. They aren’t that salty. On the other hand they are a nightmare to anyone with a peanut allergy since people around them eating them can’t help but get peanuty dust everywhere.

    * Do not taunt lightly salted peanuts.

  10. bcsizemo says:

    I just eat the peanuts and snort the dust that’s left over.  Man what a rush!

  11. awjt says:

    I’d hate to see the heavily salted ones.

  12. Anaerin says:

    Warning: Packet may contain nut traces.

  13. Donald Petersen says:

    What’s with the mahogany tray/table?  Do you fly Plutocrat Class?

  14. Guest says:

    Just what we need, packets of white powdery substance on airplanes. Thanks Delta. 

  15. MikeKStar says:

    Wait…You got peanuts?!  All I get on my air carrier is the used gum stuck to the armrest.

  16. MooseDesign says:

    I wonder what the delta is between that and salted peanuts.

  17. Two peanuts were walking through the park. And one was assaulted. It happened so many times, that they took all the assaulted ones and stuck them in a bag and gave them to Rob, at which point the joke wasn’t even grammatical.

  18. Daemonworks says:

    That’s actually more dangerous than half the stuff the TSA won’t let you take on a plane.

  20. Ashley Yakeley says:

    It’s for rehydration in the dry cabin air. Eat the peanuts, drink some orange juice and some water.

  21. Gabriel Meister says:

    “Lightly” obviously refers to the albedo — I mean, it *is* pretty bright.

  22. TheMudshark says:

    Refreshing beverages can be purchased from your flight attendants for the low price of 6$. If you happen to not carry US currency at this time we will provide complementary stationary for a farewell letter. Postage not included.

  23. Doc_S says:

    It’s for the matter transference beam. You’d have lost some salt and protein.

  24. schrutzki says:

    Well, you also might like Turkish Airlines’ approach: They hand out small bags of hazelnuts (unsalted). Small print on the bag reads: Caution, may contain traces of nuts.

  25. GreatGrey says:

    Hah, I rode Delta the other day from Miami – Atlanta – Cincinnati and I thought about documenting the nuts like Rob did here.

    A whopping 0.4 ounces.

  26. At least there’s a trace of peanuts. Far better than the pretzel/cracker/chexmix snacks I’ve had on other airlines.

  27. Marja Erwin says:

    Soon, those airlines which provide snacks will provide an unidentifiable combination of pork, beef, cheese, mayonaise, mixed nuts, gluten supplements, and potassium salts. For a fee one may buy cut-rate fugu.

  28. CLamb says:

    That must be light salt in the picture.
