Peanut Butter & Co. will promote the Nuttin’ But Fun sweepstakes on specially-marked jars of Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter, available at major supermarkets and retailers nationwide. The sweepstakes will also be promoted on the Peanut Butter & Co. web site, social media channels, and the sweepstakes microsite.
