It's National Peanut Butter Lovers Day❗

Can you believe we are already in March ❓

One day is not enough to recognize the many contributions of the beloved Peanut Butter.

According to, "the slang term for peanut butter in World War II was "monkey butter."

A monkey visited the lab at Kellogg's one day and dipped his banana in a jar of peanut butter, and he's been ape over the combination ever since. Actually, banana slices with peanut butter sandwiched between them and dipped in chocolate make a terrific snack.

Peanut butter and bananas were a combination even fit for a king. Elvis Presley loved a peanut butter and banana sandwich or two.

Then peanut butter got its passport and traveled the world. It paired up with some shrimp and got a little saucy. The result is a Thai peanut butter shrimp that is so yummy it had to be true love.

Things heated up a little when peanut butter jumped into the stew pot to sweat it out with a spring chick seasoned with some cayenne. African Chicken Peanut Stew tastes better than ever.

One of the best times peanut butter has ever had is with marshmallows. Fudge enjoys a satisfying dessert status to be envied."

Here's some additional nutty fun facts :

  • It takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter.

  • C.H. Sumner first sold peanut butter in the United States at the Universal Exposition in St. Louis.  He sold $705.11 of the “new treat” at his concession stand.

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup was introduced to America in 1928.

  • The oldest operating manufacturer and seller of peanut butter has been selling peanut butter since 1898.

  • Mr. Ed TV’s used peanut butter as a secret ingredient to get a horse talking.
