A gallery honoring Planters' mascot could be coming to the commonwealth

During a peanut-themed celebration held on Public Square Monday, Wilkes-Barre Mayor George Brown said he's planning to bring a Mr. Peanut gallery to the city.

It comes after Mr. Peanut was reborn as Baby Nut during a Super Bowl commercial Sunday night.

That commercial followed a 30-second teaser where Mr. Peanut fell to his death to save his friends after a "nutmobile" accident.

Mayor Brown said after learning of Mr. Peanut's "demise,"he connected with the company about establishing a Mr. Peanut gallery in Wilkes-Barre, the birthplace of Planters back in 1906.
