NUTmobile to crack open some nut love with 4 Dayton-area appearances


There has been a change of plans, and the Planters NUTmobile will NOT be appearing at Marc’s grocery store in Kettering on Thursday, Sept. 6 as previously announced, but will instead appear at the Kroger store at 3520 W. Siebenthaler Ave. in Dayton from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Thursday, Sept. 6 date. All other appearances described below are unchanged.


A Planters NUTmobile — affectionately known to its driver as a “24-foot-long peanut on wheels” —will make several Dayton-area public appearances this week.

The Nutmobile will appear at three local Kroger stores, and at the Clinton County Corn Fest, according to an email release from Maggie Byrne, a self-described Planters Peanutter who travels the country behind the wheel of the Planters NUTmobile.

“At our events, fans can see the NUTmobile, take a picture and meet their favorite Wing Nut Mr. Peanut, play a game and receive samples of delicious and irresistibly satisfying Planters nuts,” Byrne wrote.
