This week on the DATESCAST, we kickoff our 12 DATES OF CHRISTMAS with our sad snackologists reminiscing over a year and a Hawaiian vacation lost due to COVID-19. Maybe we’ll look back at it and say “I was there”. Maybe we’ll learn to appreciate our dude vacations a little bit more. Or maybe, just maybe, we will say “at least we got to try that giant bag of first class airline nuts”. Because on this week’s episode, the dynamic duo of snacking is picking, eating, and rating American Airlines First Class Aloha Mixed Nuts. Sure we didn’t get to dig our toes in the sands of Waikiki, but the Pina Colada Pecans are a comforting consolation prize.
