The public relations firm assisting with this year's New Year Peach Drop, tells FOX 5 the traditional Georgia Peach will drop from the tower. 

With the addition of M&M Mars as a corporate sponsor however, the tower will also feature a giant yellow 'Peanut M&M'.

The company says 2014 is 'the year of the peanut' and have chosen the Georgia celebration as a way to honor the state's peanut heritage.

Organizers say the Peach will continue to be the main event, with the giant peanut 'appearing nearby on the tower'.
