Wherever you’re going for the Thanksgiving holiday, don’t worry about bringing your own snacks.
This week, in a fun push to advertise its new show, “The Final Table,” Netflix is bringing free food to hungry travelers at JFK airport in New York City and O’Hare Airport in Chicago.
But these snacks aren’t your typical popcorn and trail mix. Instead, the free eats will represent the global meals from the 9 countries — Mexico, Spain, UK, Brazil, India, United States, Italy, France and Japan — which will be introduced in “The Final Table.” “The Final Table” is a global cooking competition that celebrates the togetherness food can bring to us all, according to a statement from Netflix.
Snacks include tastes of paella, full English breakfast pork scratchings, spiced black bean Brazil nuts, Thanksgiving leftover bread pudding, sundried tomato fusilli, nori-crusted peanuts, and more.
In addition to a gourmet mini-meal, travelers will interact with a customized screen where they can select the country they wish to “travel to” on their food journey. On the screen, they can find out more information about the country, the local food, the chefs that will be part of the new Netflix show, and get to see a short clip from the episode that features their chosen country as a teaser.
After the presentation, travelers receive a box with an international gourmet snack with information about the local ingredients used to make it from their chosen country. Frankly, after braving the long security lines of other Thanksgiving travelers, you definitely deserve to treat yourself a little before getting on your flight. It certainly beats in-flight pretzels and overpriced snacks from the news stand.
This delicious offering will only be available at JFK and O’Hare from Wednesday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 25. Just in time for you to travel both to and from your grandma’s house.
