From Memorial Day through Labor Day, Dole will take its "Peel the Love" program on the road to banana-loving cities across the country. A brightly colored "Peel the Love" food truck, created specifically for the tour and staffed by healthy eating advocates, will stop at supermarkets, parks and other public and private venues to dispense samples, recipes, serving suggestions and fun information. Included in each city will be stops at schools, food kitchens and other nonprofits.
"Pairing Blue Diamond Almond Breeze® Almondmilk and DOLE Bananas in delicious recipes is a fantastic combination," said Suzanne Hagener, senior marketing manager of Blue Diamond Almond Breeze.
