Nutty Facts to Crunch On
You enter your friend’s home to celebrate a special occasion…and there… sitting on the table…is a jar.
A jar of M&Ms, jelly beans, popcorn kernels, whatever it is, you know the drill—guess how many are in the jar. You try to count and give your best guess. But it always seems to be someone else who wins the prize.
Now it’s your turn to jazz up the next special occasion—how about around your table at Thanksgiving? Forget the jars of candy and items that other hosts have already used. Choose a harder nut—or legume—to crack. Like peanuts, for instance.
Set out a 12 oz. jar of peanut butter on your table—yes, next to the pilgrim candles, candy corn, and harvest arrangement. (Peanut butter always belongs on the table—especially during its appreciation month.)
And then pass slips of paper around the table. Have each person write down a guess for how many peanuts it takes to make a 12 oz. jar of peanut butter. Collect the answers. The closest guess wins the prize—the jar of peanut butter, of course.
And don’t worry, we won’t tell your VIPs that you got the idea from Carepackage. Peanut butter lovers stick together…
BTW, it takes about 540 peanuts to make one 12 oz. jar of peanut butter.
