Candy from Tacoma’s Brown & Haley will be part of Alaska Airlines’ upgraded first-class snacks beginning this week.

The airline will serve the company’s Mocha Roca candy as part of its “morning basket” snack service on West Coast and Alaska flights of one to three hours.

Brown & Haley’s Almond Roca will be be part of a “daytime basket” snack served after 10:30 a.m.

The airline said the new baskets will be more healthful than the previously offered first class snacks of nuts, cookies or a cheese plate. The new offerings will be free of transfats, high fructose corn syrup and MSG.

The morning basket will include Sweet Perry Orchards pears in pear juice, Copper Cowbell white cheddar cheese slices, Emergen-C energy drink mix, Emerald Deluxe mixed nuts, Mocha Roca and Barry’s Bakery cinnamon pastry twists.

The daytime basket will include Regenie’s pita chips, Wild Garden hummus, Brother’s fuji apple crisps, Emergen-C energy drink mix, Almond Roca and Mrs. May’s cranberry trio bars.
