Duda Farm Fresh Foods Celebrates First Ever National Ants on a Log Day
OVIEDO, FL – Duda Farm Fresh Foods is joining Peanut Butter & Co. to celebrate the first ever National Ants on a Log Day on Tuesday, September 9.
Duda, the largest grower and processor of celery in the United States and around the world, is paying tribute to the creamy and crunchy snack with recipes, a Twitter party on September 10, Facebook giveaways and an Instagram contest.
“We will share ways to stay traditional with peanut butter and raisins, or mix it up with chocolate peanut butter and pistachios, and just about any other combination you can think of,” said Nichole Towell, Director of Marketing. “This holiday is timed perfectly with back to school, and by using social media tools we can engage in a fun, fresh way with kids and adults alike.”
Duda and Peanut Butter & Co. applied for the day to be registered, and it was granted, according to a press release. Going forward, the registrar of the National Day Calendar has designated the second Tuesday of September of each year as National Ants on a Log Day to recognize this healthy food snack.
Ants on a log, named in the 1950s, is made by spreading peanut butter across celery and placing raisins on top. The McKinley Healthy Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has recommended it as a healthy snack.
On Instagram, celery lovers are invited to post their favorite #AntsOnaLog snack to #entertowin Peanut Butter from @PeanutButterCo and coupons for #free Dandy Celery. To enter the contest, tag @DandyFreshProduce and @PeanutButterCo and use #AntsOnaLogDay in a post.
