Behind the Wheel of the NUTmobile
When the NUTmobile rolls into town, one of the first questions most people ask a Peanutter is “how does it drive?” Everyone wants to know what it’s like to drive a giant legume on the road. We can tell you a lot about that- its fantastic turn radius, its lightly salted fiberglass shell, or its ability to run on peanut oil (really!)- but one thing remains true over everything else: the NUTmobile is our baby.
My very first time meeting the Planters NUTmobile. Love at first salt.
Most people remember their first car and how much they loved it. It’s a similar feeling getting the NUTmobile keys handed over, but we are absolutely nuts about our ride. The NUTmobile is more than just a way to get from A to B; it’s a way of life. After just a couple months on the road with it, I’m unashamed to admit that I often check on it from my hotel room window before I go to bed.
John Legend captures our feelings for the NUTmobile best in his popular song, “All of me” when he sings “love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.” It takes a little bit longer to get around in a 23-foot peanut on wheels, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The waves and smiles we get while driving the NUTmobile around the United States make us the most popular peanut on the road, and that is quite a trALMONDous privilege.
