The new American Pistachiomobile will be cruising
Fresno and Clovis this weekend with stops at the Two Cities Marathon Fitness
Expo in downtown Fresno, Bulldog Boulevard before the Fresno State-Nevada
football game, and finally at the Two Cities Marathon & Half at Woodward
As a participating sponsor of these popular
Fresno-Clovis events, American Pistachio Growers recognized them as great
venues to introduce the specially designed Pistachiomobile, which will be used
to promote the nutritional powers of pistachios at fitness events throughout
California. These protein-packed and nutritionally-dense nuts are a favorite of
athletes, both professional and amateur.
Attendees at all events are invited to stop by and
learn more about the health benefits of pistachios, get a free sample pack, and
have their picture taken with APG’s brand ambassadors Miss California 2013
Crystal Lee and Miss California 2012 Leah Cecil-Tibbitts. As an added bonus,
people who like American Pistachio Growers on Facebook and upload photos of
themselves with the Pistachiomobile on social media will be eligible to win a
100-day supply of pistachios.
Pistachios are a good source of lean protein and pack
3 grams of filling fiber per serving, which makes them a smart snack option. A
one-ounce serving is equal to 49 nuts- more than any other tree nut- and
contains 6g of protein, 290 mg of potassium along with calcium, phosphorus,
magnesium, thiamin, vitamin B6 and other vitamins.
“Since our bodies don’t store protein it’s important
to replenish, especially after participating in sports and athletic events,”
says Judy Hirigoyen, Global Marketing Director for the Fresno-based American
Pistachio Growers. She continues, “Health-oriented and sports events are a
natural association for pistachios and this pistachio-themed van is a fun way
to reach our consumers.”
