Foodie on the Fly at DTW? How About a Vegan Peanut Butter Sandwiches at PB&J?

Detroit Metropolitan Airport is one of the nicest airports to fly through so it’s no surprise that there are plenty of fantastic restaurant choices to boot.  Depending on who you need to feed and how much time you have, the choices can be overwhelming fast.  Satisfy your kids and the kid-in-you with gourmet peanut butter sandwiches at PB&J. With peanut or almond butter options, a variety of jelly choices, and fruit, honey, and chocolate additions available, what’s not to like? Even the pickiest little eater in your travel crew will warm up to this familiar meal.  These tasty sandwiches are vegan and come with a banana on the side for a healthy boost of Vitamin K.  Just one bite will transport you back to the school lunchroom and the bliss of childhood…plus they are easy to eat and transport in your carryon bag for an in-flight snack later on.

Pro Tip: Add a slice of bacon to your PB&J. Go on, do it.

Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats for Your Valentine Sweet

Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats for Your Valentine Sweet

How sweet it is to be loved by you! This is your pilot speaking.

Valentine’s Day is this weekend and for those of us on the tarmac, time might be limited to find that special someone a little treat. I’ve compiled a list of places in major airports around the U.S. where you can find something special if time is tight. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and have first hand experience at most of these places. If I missed a favorite spot of yours I apologies. The list below is meant to also showcase something only found at that airport. There are two exceptions in The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Dylan’s Candy Bar which have franchises around the country. Rocky Mountain is your classic confectionery with treats for ever taste. Dylan’s offers a large selection of favorite brand name candies that you can 4314-Truffles36_79881_01v1Wmix and match as well as pre made gift boxes. A special note on Dylan’s: If you ever find yourself just east of Central Park in New York City you will find the flagship store that offers 4 stories of candy heaven. And if you happen to be flying internationally, don’t forget you can always find delicious limited edition Godiva Belgian chocolates at Duty Free Stores everywhere. Enjoy and safe travels as always!
