The stroopwafel isn’t just for breakfast anymore.

Beginning today, United Airlines is offering the Dutch-inspired caramel-filled waffle all day long on its flights.

The stroopwafel, previously only available on flights departing before 9:45am, now will be one of three complimentary inflight snack options available to economy passengers on United’s domestic flights.

Other choices will include pretzels and a third option that will rotate throughout the year. Currently, the third choice is Byrd’s maple wafers.

“Since we reintroduced free snacks a few years ago, our customers have come to look forward to enjoying their personal favorites on board – whether it be the stroopwafel, our exclusive maple wafers or the classic pretzels,” Toby Enqvist, United’s Chief Customer Officer, says in a statement. “Now we’re going a step further and when it comes to snacks, every customer wins since our entire inflight snack lineup is available to choose from no matter the time of day.”

The complimentary snack line-up was reintroduced into economy flights in late 2015. The no-charge snacks are offered in addition to United’s for-pay “Choice Menu” items that range from small snacks like Pringles ($4) and M&Ms ($4) to more robust breakfast, lunch and dinner options that cost up to $10.

The availability of the Choice Menu options vary by flight, with more bigger bits typically offered on flights of three hours or more.
