A simply divine treat is in the bag of goodies given to each person at registration for the Southern Peanut Growers Conference – chocolate covered peanut butter cherries. And they are just incredibly delicious.
Leslie Wagner with the Peanut Advisory Board says the new gourmet product comes from a company called Cherries Divine Chocolatiers. “We actually helped them develop the product and they are going to be offering them in their product line,” Leslie said. “This is a very high-end company. They really specialize in fancy, corporate gifts, weddings and things like that. So, it’s a high end company and peanut butter will be right there in the middle of it!”
Leslie says the Peanut Advisory Board has been very busy with promotional activities this year, such as two nights of Screen on the Green, an annual outdoor film festival and a popular Atlanta summertime tradition, where they gave away peanuts and Lance peanut butter snack products.
