Default Rare Dazzy Vance Card Found

Sharing this article I saw this morning about a 1919 Zee-nut Dazzy Vance that will be going up for auction in April. His family owned the card and it comes complete with the coupon

What exactly was/is Zee-nut (or Zeenuts?)?? I know the cards feature PCL players, so they must be from out here on the west coast, but I really can't find any info on where they came from. Were they put in packages of nuts, or something else? Any insight would be appreciated.

Definitely a candy, though I have never heard of anyone finding a wrapper. Because of no wrapper, my personal theory is that it came on a big tray, and was placed in an envelope when you bought it, and you where handed a card. The cards don't seem to have any candy stains, like 1914 CJs, so I think it is very possible. As good a theory as any, I guess.

Here's a picture of the candy, in this (adorable? creepy?) ad for the product from back in the day:
