The Definitive Fodor’s List of Trader Joe’s Snacks to Bring on a Plane (And What Definitely Not To Bring)

What makes a good plane snack? Very specific criteria, actually.

Welcome to the plane. First of all, it’s important to provide yourself with as much comfort as possible on a plane because you are entering a situation of discomfort. Unless you are a lord who flies in the front-half and better part of the plane (and in that case: I bow down to you), planes are uncomfortable and you are entirely responsible for making this situation a more pleasant one for yourself. The number one thing that brings me comfort–maybe in the whole world–is walking into a Trader Joe’s. No matter the location, you can certainly expect the exact same thing–but variations of the same thing to keep it interesting. It’s no surprise, therefore, that Trader Joe’s snacks instantly bring comfort when flying on a plane. I know I will be taken care of, and don’t have to fret over whatever (probably fine) rogue snack I will be given during the duration of my flight from the flight attendants. Planes are uncomfortable and you are entirely responsible for making this situation a more pleasant one for yourself. I’m sure as hell not going to rely on the airline to keep my stomach glad during my million-hour flight to wherever. I come equipped with the best snacks possible, as my whole personal item. Here’s what’s in my bag.
