Deb shares nutty recipe with Peanut Van for birthday bash

TO CELEBRATE 50 years of the iconic Kingaroy Peanut Van, Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington will be dropping by to share her top-secret peanut recipe.

Ms Frecklington said it was an honour to join the business in celebrating the milestone.

"I feel very privileged to be part of the Peanut Van's 50th anniversary and to provide my secret peanut slice recipe for their birthday cookbook,” she said.

"Since being elected, I have been so proud to promote the South Burnett's peanut industry to my colleagues at State Parliament and in my travels around Queensland.

"Over the years I have taken Kingaroy peanuts with me wherever I go. During a visit to drought-affected primary producers near Longreach in 2015, I took a bundle of Peanut Van products.”

Ms Frecklington described the Kingaroy peanuts as fresh and delicious and an obvious gift choice.

"It was lovely to give these small gifts and help create a connection between primary producers from two distinct regions,” she said.

"I would like to congratulate owners Rob and Christine Patch, and of course Peanut Van manager Rowena Dionysius on this important milestone.

"The Peanut Van is such an icon in our region, and I look forward to seeing the business grow even further over the next 50 years.”

Ms Frecklington will be dropping off peanut slice recipe at the van today at 10am. It will be added to the Peanut Van Cookbook.
