The American Pistachiomobile will be cruising Fresno and Clovis, Calif., this weekend, making stops at the California State University, Fresno-Nevada football game and the Two Cities Marathon.
The Fresno-based American Pistachio Growers already sponsors the events and thought they’d be great places to introduce the specially designed vehicle, according to a news release.
The Pistachiomobile also is scheduled to make visits to other sport and fitness events throughout the state to promote the protein-packed nut that’s also a favorite of athletes.
People who like the American Pistachio Growers on Facebook and upload photos of themselves with the Pistachiomobile will be eligible to win a 100-day supply of the green nut.
The promotion ties into American pistachios being named the “official snack” of USA Water Polo, professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones, British pro cyclist Mark Cavendish and the Miss California Organization.
