In early March of this year I wrote a post about EasyJet’s Feel Good Snack Box, one of two snack boxes that they offer on their menu. I was very impressed with the selection and care that had gone into putting together such a snack box, and thoroughly enjoyed munching it up.
On a return visit to the Netherlands late last month, I was feeling the need for something to tie me over before I reached my destination at 10pm so I opened up the EasyJet menu and figured that I had to try the other snack box available, the Yumble Bumble. No idea why it is called that, and once again, I am surprised at how little information is available about the box online. I was able to find out that they are but together by an airline catering company called Retail in Motion. Personally, I would like to know more about the origins of the name for the snack box and also what process they go through in selecting the items that go into them. Seeing as Easyjet flies to countless destinations throughout Europe, I gather that they need to include a range of items that would be palatable to most cultures.
Snack Box contents: a packet of mini grissini with hummus dip, a pack of artisan style chips/crisps, 2 cream crackers with a Bel Paese cream cheese, one Eat Natural yoghurt coated bar (love their snack bars!), and a Lindt milk chocolate ball.
So, what did I think? Well, I enjoyed my snack box, but it wasn’t as good as their other Feel Good Snack Box on the whole. I loved the design of the box, very cheerful and fun. My favorite piece was the Eat Natural yoghurt covered bar which I had never tried before. It was delish and it will become a regular in my cupboard along with other Eat Natural products.
I should add that in the process of my research, I came across this neat site http://www.airlinemeals.net/ where you can upload images and descriptions/reviews of your airline culinary experiences around the world.
