Bringing the Peanut Home
Wanted to CASHEW up on what we’ve been doing while on this TRAIL-MIX’d with Lightly Salted Peanuts! Whenever we do an event, people always ask us where Planters first started. Suffolk, Virginia of course! We actually had the opportunity to visit the Planters plant in Suffolk at an exciting time as they were celebrating their 100 year anniversary! It was my fellow Peanutters and my honor to bring the NUTmobile and Mr. Peanut home to Suffolk. Mr. Peanut even pulled a few strings and we were allowed to tour the plant where many of your favorite Planters products are made and packaged! It was very impressive the care and quality that Planters puts into creating all the different varieties of nuts and blends that we enjoy on an everyday basis. That’s probably why they’ve been around for such a long time!!!
We were honored to help the employees celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Planters plant and just to be in the town that produced my boss, the iconic Mr. Peanut was amazing. Everyone in Suffolk knows and loves Mr. Peanut, but really, who doesn’t?!
Till next time!
