Albertsons Goes Peanuts with The Peanuts Movie

I have always enjoyed sharing childhood memories with my boys, whether it’s family memories, candy, a song, movies or characters… nostalgic conversations always take me back in time. As parents, we often find ourselves recalling a fond memory and wishing we could recapture that moment and we often do through our children. The Peanuts are one of those rare and special childhood gifts that we get to share with our own children, over and over again.

Every holiday season our family looks forward to each Peanuts special that airs. We used to gather three generations of our family to watch the Peanuts gang together and belly-laugh until it hurt. It never gets old, watching our boys laugh and enjoy our childhood specials is priceless and contagious. A child’s joy is contagious.

To say that we are excited about the new Peanuts Movie, releasing in theaters November 6th, would be an understatement. The Peanuts Movie is the first feature film based on the characters in 35 years and will commemorate the 65th anniversary of the comic strip. We are counting down the days, playing on the interactive website and having some fun “Peanutizing” ourselves.

The Peanuts Movie

The Davis family is going Peanuts too; we’re celebrating the release of The Peanuts Movie with treats and sweets! My boys created two recipes to get us in the Peanuts spirit., Charlie Brown Peanut Butter Brownie Bites and a Great Pumpkin Patch. Both recipes are simple, kid friendly and kid approved! If you have children with peanut allergies, you can make both recipes without the peanut butter.

The Peanuts Movie

The Great Pumpkin Patch is so easy your toddlers can make it. We bought a Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats Original Fun Sheet, drizzled it with melted, green colored, peanut butter and placed pumpkin candies throughout. Easy as 1, 2, 3! You can replace the peanut butter with green icing if need be.

All of the above items can be purchased at your local Albertsons. The Nestle and Kellogg’s items are both participating Peanuts bag brands. Visit your nearest Albertsons to get your ingredients for the above recipes and grab one one of those adorable Peanuts bags for your little peanut, before they are all gone!
