JetBlue Swaps Peanuts for Crickets

Skateboarding Helsinki airport, picking Jeff Koons' brain, JetBlue stocks cricket bars and more in our weekly look at the web

Airplane cuisine has a bad reputation—and for good reason. The dubious dinners served at cruising altitude are rarely appetizing and almost never healthy. As of late, airlines have began to step up their game by offering higher quality dining options and more nutritious snacks. This week JetBlue announced it would be offering a healthy snack box for Mint and Core passengers on JFK to LAX routes—and we’re not just talking granola bars. The box contains EXO bars, a cricket flour-based protein bar sure to spark more than a few conversations (i.e. Tweets) when the new food options debut next year.
