Today, April 2nd, is National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!
Disclaimer: I received samples of the Planters Peanut Butter, but I was not paid to review or endorse them. All opinions are my own.
As you may know, I LOVE peanut butter, so this is a very special day for me! Lucky for me I have a few different types of peanut butter in my house, including Arrowhead Mills Creamy Peanut Butter, a great natural version (the only ingredient is dry roasted peanuts), and Planters new Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Spread. I haven’t had the chance to taste the Planters’ PB yet, but I’m curious to see what it’s like. Unlike other natural peanut butters, the Planters one has sugar, palm oil, and salt added.
Here are some fun facts about PB&J:
- Do you have a fear of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of your mouth? If so, you have Arachibutyrophobia.
- Before graduating high school, the average child is believed to consume 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
- If you ever get gum stuck in your hair, you may be able to remove it with the oils found in peanut butter.
- Peanuts are actually legumes, not nuts. But “Legume Butter” has an odd ring to it.
To celebrate the day, enjoy a PB&J sandwich the regular way or in a more unique fashion, like these crepes I saw online from Giada de Laurentiis or waffles with peanut butter and blueberries. Who says jelly has to come pre-made?!
