This is it, the ULTIMATE incentive to buy EA UFC

This is it, the ULTIMATE incentive to buy EA UFC

I wonder what Corn Nuts thinks of this? How could Planters do this? They swooped right in and took all of the prize fighting glory straight from the iron-clad grasp of the Corn Nuts, a salty snack that has been in the corner of the UFC for years. 

Could this be the changing of the guard? Or will this be a years-long game of thrones for snack nuts and the UFC? 

There's no doubting that Planters is more popular than Corn Nuts, and they're made of real nuts, but this also comes down to loyalty. Corn Nuts have been the official snacks of combat enthusiasts everywhere for years, and now I just don't know what to believe.

Don't worry Jason, this wasn't done through the UFC. This looks like just a Target promotion. Platters did an end around Corn Nuts and Zuffa.

Something about someone sadly opening their little cans of nuts and munching on them alone makes me laugh.

Corn Nuts suck so bad. They're so dry they give them out for free at UFC events just so you have to run back and grab a beer to get the shitty taste out of your mouth. Now they got you drinking, and thinking "hey I want to try that shit taste again"....then you do and re-realize they suck and buy another beer.
