From pretzels to peanuts to first-class dining experiences, airplane food can run the gamut.

And just as the amount of space between seats has changed, so have the menu items. Bon Appétit went digging back in history to showcase the different kinds of options that have made their way onto commercial airplanes over the past 100 years.

And to make it interesting, they invited kids—probably the most honest of all humans—to do the taste testing.
