America’s Peanut Farmers Bring Energy Boost to Grand Central
Event Launches National Promotion Showcasing Nutrition, Sustainability of USA Peanuts
Grand Central Terminal may be one of the most active and hectic locations on the planet. But even travelers through this historic facility can use a boost of energy from time to time.
That’s why America’s Peanut Farmers have chosen Grand Central Terminal for the launch of a new national promotion, “Peanuts Energize Your World.” For two days, visitors to Vanderbilt Hall will have the opportunity to sample peanut and peanut butter products, meet peanut growers, ride a rollercoaster simulator and register to win a 2012 Ford Focus and other great prizes.
With seven grams per serving, peanuts have more energy boosting protein than any nut, as well as more than 30 nutrients and phytonutrients.
