Miss California 2015

Bree Morse

“As Miss California it's important to have healthy hair, nails, and skin. Including nutrient-rich pistachios in my diet not only helps me look and feel my best, but they also keep me energized for every appearance and tap dance performed.”

American pistachios are the Official Snack of Miss California, who is regarded worldwide as the personification of the iconic California lifestyle. As American Pistachio Growers’ ambassador, Miss California represents APG at events worldwide and participates in social media postings.


December 10 – 19, 2015
Miss California 2015 Bree Morse will be touring China on a PR tour to promote American pistachios to the 1.4 billion population. The nine-day blitz stretches across China, focusing on four major cities (Shanghai, Ningbo, Xi’an, and Beijing) and began December 10.

The pistachios growers who are traveling with Miss California across China include Jimi Valov, Devin Aviles and Alison Nagatani, all from California’s Central Valley. Miss California and her entourage of farmers have a packed itinerary of personal appearances, television, newspaper and magazine interviews, nutrition seminars and VIP events planned. Their trip coincides with the Holidays and just ahead of Chinese New Year, a season when pistachios are a popular food and gift item.

In China leading up to the Miss California China tour, APG ran full page ads in Trends Health, Women's Day, and VIVI magazines such as the one pictured below:

Beautiful Inside and Outside

Pistachios contain many nutrients essential for healthy skin and hair. Of all the tree nuts, pistachios have the most lutein and zeaxanthin-antioxidants that can help protect skin from the damage of ultraviolet light that contributes to skin aging. The B vitamins and minerals such as copper, magnesium and selenium found in pistachios are necessary for the growth and renewal of healthy skin. The healthy fats in pistachios can help support moist skin and shiny hair. And, at 160 calories per one ounce serving-which is about 49 nuts-pistachios can easily fit into daily habits that help maintain your shape.
