Chocolate is out, cookies are in. And not just any cookies, but delicious white chocolate cranberry cookies.
When United first unrolled its Polaris business soft product, every longhaul flight began with a chocolate truffle in premium cabins. Currently United passes out chocolate with the pre-arrival meal service.
But that changes on May 01st, when United ditches the chocolate in favor of cookies.
In response to customer feedback, beginning May 1, United will offer customers a pre-arrival dessert in place of the pre-departure chocolate that is currently served. On flights departing the U.S., customers will be served a white chocolate cranberry cookie from Christie Cookie Co., handcrafted from gourmet ingredients in Nashville, Tenn. Customers on flights that originate outside the U.S. will receive a box of chocolates.
I truly love cookies. In fact, it is dangerous to leave a plate of cookies near me. Some of you may not like the change, but I wholeheartedly endorse it, especially after sampling the cookies.
I may have had

That sign is going to have to be re-printed since “Polaris First” will soon be a relic of the past…
These are excellent cookies: my wife vouches for them too. Chocolate will still be served on flights originating outside the USA.
