The Planters NUTmobile had a change of plans today.
Initially, the schedule for the vehicle affectionately known to its driver as a “24-foot-long peanut on wheels” called for an appearance today, Thursday Sept. 6, at Marc’s, the grocery store that opened last month on Whipp Road in the southeast corner of Kettering.
That appearance has been cancelled and replaced with an appearance from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Kroger store at 3520 W. Siebenthaler Ave. in Dayton, Maggie Byrne, the self-described Planters Peanutter who travels the country behind the wheel of the Planters NUTmobile, told this news outlet via email this morning, Sept. 6.
Here’s the full, revised schedule for the NUTMobile:
- Thursday Sept 6: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Kroger store at 3520 W. Siebenthaler Ave. in Dayton
- Friday Sept 7: Clinton County Corn Fest; 1 to 9 p.m. at the Clinton County Fairgrounds, 958 West Main St. in Wilmington.
- Saturday Sept 8: Kroger, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 6480 Wilmington Pike in Sugarcreek Twp., and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Kroger at 5400 Cornerstone North Blvd. in the Cornerstone of Centerville development.
“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.
She wrote that she and her crew “hope to ‘cashew’ around during out visit to Dayton.”
