How many peanuts are in a Delta Airlines bag of peanuts?

How many peanuts are in the Delta peanut bag?

This morning I flew from Philadelphia to Minneapolis on Delta airlines. They offered me a choice of peanuts, pretzels or cookies. I chose the peanuts.

How many peanuts are in Delta Airlines bag of peanuts?

The peanuts are lightly salted. They were roasted in peanut oil and/or canola oil with salt. The serving size is one pack (12g). The total fat is 6g 10%. Saturated fat is 1 gram and Sugars are 1 gram. They were made by King Nut Company in Solon Ohio.

The bag of Delta Airlines Lightly Salted Peanuts weighs .42 oz or 12 grams.

I haven’t opened the bag yet.

Usually I eat more peanuts when I have a single serving. Perhaps it is a single serving for a mouse.

Maybe if I was on a longer flight they would have given me a bag with more peanuts?

How many peanuts do you think are inside? Please tell me in the comments.

    I think 11 peanuts. There’s never ‘enough’!! LOL

    • Yes, there might only be 11 peanuts. I wonder how many are in a bag that only weighs .42 oz?

  • Teresa Richardson

    I think there are 24 peanuts in the bag- 2 for each month of the year

    • Teresa,
      You might just be right. The bag will get opened at midnight tonight.

  • La McCoy

    Edels dad says 20. he flies a lot.

    • I wonder if he is right. We will find out very soon.

  • Jaana

    I am not a big peanut fan, but I, too, would choose peanuts over the cookies. My guess is 19!

  • I turned down the peanuts for the cookies on our last flightI. I wonder had I eaten the peanuts whether I might have had a better chance. I’m guessing 37.

    • Oh Shelley, if only you had ordered the peanuts! The bag gets opened soon!

  • Stacey

    I will guess 12 peanuts. =)

  • I would guess 30 peanuts. 🙂

  • Michelle Crooker

    17 peanuts is my guess.

  • Kurt Poole

    I would take the cookie as well. I often fly with a friend who always asks for extra, and gets them. Once he asked for more and the attendant gave him the whole bag of packs of peanuts… He embarrasses me at times, but i always get extra when I’m with him… I’l say 23….

    • Kurt,
      I never even thought of asking for more peanuts. What a great idea. Your friend will always keep you supplied. A good friend indeed.
      Hmm, 23. Thank you for guessing.
      I wonder how many are in there?

  • 30 peanuts. I like peanuts, but I chose the cookie when I flew to OKC last year.

    • Hello Eva,
      I would rather have the cookies too, but I can’t eat sugar.
      Tomorrow at midnight, I will open the bag and count the peanuts.
      Thank you for guessing.
