Though it might not seem like Planters nuts and Oscar Mayer hot dogs would make for an unforgettable pairing, the NUTmobile and Wienermobile are here to prove us wrong. As a part of their annual tours, the Planters NUTmobile and Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will both be appearing at the Dayton Off Road & Outdoor Expo in Wilmington this weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 27-28.

For over 80 years, the NUTmobile and Wienermobile have driven around the country by recent college graduates who are called Peanutters and Hotdoggers. The NUTmobile is a 26-foot-long peanut on wheels while the Wienermobile is just as visually compelling as a 27-foot-long hot dog on wheels.

Apart from simply being able to see these iconic vehicles in person, customers will also be able to snag nut samples from the NUTmobile or classic Wiener Whistles from the Wienermobile.
