This tin peanut can was part of a unique advertising campaign that took place during the 1940's...during that time, Planters offered a premium when you bought their peanuts. All you had to do was buy a can of peanuts, open the can and send in the enclosed coupon. Planters would then send the lucky customer a new lid with a built-in nut chopper.

Flanked by Mr. Peanut and some lovely artwork of cocktails with a plate of peanuts, the text reads, “Planters good at Cocktail time salted Peanuts, copyright 1938, manufactured by Planters Nut & Chocolate Co., Suffolk, VA. Made in USA.” A tiny oval reads “Contains vitamins A B and D”

Directions are included on the side stating that cold weather or refrigeration makes oils congeal, therefore it is recommended that the entire tin be put into an oven for a few minutes before opening. Around the lid it says “Planters Nut Chopper” and around the top, “For sundaes, salads, baking, home made candy, etc.” with Mr. Peanut on the very top of the dome.

Measures approx. 4 1/4" tall and just shy of 3 1/2" wide, this working nut chopper is a great advertising piece. Wonderful for any collection or (with a small amount of cleaning inside) use it as a functional piece for a vintage kitchen.

If you have any questions or would like to see more photos, please let me know.
