(Oct. 12, 2016) TIFTON, Ga.- The Georgia Peanut Commission will be hosting a Trick or Peanut event at the GPC office located at 445 Fulwood Blvd. Tifton, Georgia from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016. The event is open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend.
The GPC staff will be taking part by dressing up and providing peanuts and peanut butter- themed candies and treats to all visitors who stop by during the event.
According to mycandyfavorites.com, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the most sought-after Halloween candy. Introduced in 1928, this candy is a delicious combination of milk chocolate and smooth and creamy peanut butter, so it’s no wonder kids everywhere love them. Reese’s come in various forms, from mini to pumpkin-shaped, making them the perfect treat to hand out to all of your eager trick-or-treaters this year. According to the site, Snickers and peanut M&Ms are also top favorites among trick-or treaters.
In coordination with the event, GPC is hosting a Paint-A-Pumpkin contest for children 13 years and younger. Participants are encouraged to paint a pumpkin with a peanut theme and email a photo of their painted pumpkin to email@example.com by midnight on Oct. 23. All entered photos will be added to a Facebook album on the Georgia Peanuts Facebook page for voting on Oct. 24. Each like or share will count as one vote. The winner will be announced Nov. 1 to kick off National Peanut Butter Lovers Month celebrated annually in November.
