Austin, Minn.

Fans can help decide the right way to eat PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts by heading to @MrPeanut on Twitter to cast their vote in favor of Team “All” or Team “One”

Today, the makers of the PLANTERS® brand unveiled its Big Game ad with comedic duo Ken Jeong and Joel McHale cracking open the nuttiest snacking debate — how do you eat your PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts, all together or one at a time?

In the PLANTERS® brand Big Game ad, Jeong, Team “One,” and McHale, Team “All,” continue to go back and forth on the right way to eat PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts. Unable to come to an agreement, they take the debate to the internet to let America decide.

“As fans are getting their PLANTERS® brand snacks ready for the Big Game, my good friend and frenemy Joel and I are excited to be a part of the tasty debate of how to eat your mixed nuts,” said Team “One” lead Ken Jeong. “I believe eating your mixed nuts one at a time is the right way to snack on your PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts so you can appreciate and savor each tasty nut to the fullest!”

On the other side of the debate, spearheading Team “All,” Joel McHale said, “Ken seems to think one at a time is the right way, but I know that keeping your mixed nuts mixed is the true way to enjoy your PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts. Join the nutty debate and help me prove to Ken that all together is the right way to eat your mixed nuts.”

This year’s ad, created by VaynerMedia, will air just before halftime in select markets. Jeong and McHale will continue to poke fun at each other’s PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts snacking choices and crack the “All or One” debate wide open.

“As our fans get ready for one of the most competitive sports championship games of the year, we want to keep the friendly competition going with a tasty debate we can all go nuts about,” said Jaynee Dykes, senior brand manager for the PLANTERS® brand. “Without even realizing it, our fans eat their PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts either all together or one at a time. No matter which side of the debate you are on, enjoying delicious PLANTERS® Deluxe Mixed Nuts together makes everyone a winner.”
