I had a choice of a cookie and something else, which I guess was a pretzle snack mix.
The flight attendant referred to the snack mix as ???/
Mints and Mates?
Mix and Bites?
I wasn’t clear on what exactly he was saying…so I just said “cookie please”
What was he calling these things?
Bits and Bites?
I think that’s what it is, although I must say I really like the idea of them serving Mints and Mates.
Bits and Bites.
It’s a cracker/pretzel salty snack mix.
Good choice on the cookies
Yep. That would be it.
ETA: I would universally choose this over a cookie. Cookies don’t go with beer.
Wow…they don’t have Bits ‘n’ Bites in the U.S.? They don’t even have Shreddies?
I’ve always found the French name for this snack (Méli-Mélo) inexplicably charming.
I think a US equivalent would be Chex Mix?
They have something similar called Party Mix over at Lays/Humpty Dumpty or even the Bulk Barn.
Nope to both.
Though, looking at that ad, I’d guess that Chex Mix or Gardetto’s are probably similar.
They are similar, but Bits n Bites are much better than Chex Mix. I find that Chex Mix tastes like salt, while Bits n Bites has more of a flavour.
