It’s that time of year again! Summertime means road trips, baseball games, campfires, pool parties and picnics. All of these summer activities are made even better with yummy snacks to keep everyone energized. Looking for a convenient and nutrition-packed snack for your summer fun? Grab a handful of Fisher® Salted In-Shell Peanuts! Just like presents, unwrapping is all part of the fun! This week’s pick, Fisher® Salted In-Shell Peanuts, lets you crack away to find a delicious peanut. Packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamin E and a special antioxidant, resveratrol (the compound responsible for the benefits of grape juice and red wine), peanuts are a powerful snack! But, like most snacks, it’s easy to chow down several servings before even realizing you’re full. Shelling your own peanuts automatically slows down your munching, so you’ll be less likely to eat too many. A serving of peanuts is one ounce, which is about 30 shelled peanuts or 15 in-shell peanuts (each brown shell of the peanut contains 2 to 3 peanut kernels). Be sure to take a bag of Fisher® Salted In-Shell Peanuts with you to all of your summer adventures! I always bring a bag to share with friends and family at baseball games. Where do you and your family like to snack on in-shell peanuts?
