National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day


Why did the fisherman take a jar of peanut butter with him to sea?
So he could have it with his jellyfish.

March 1 is a yummy stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth kind of day—it’s National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! Peanut butter is one of if not the most favorite sandwich spreads in America. In fact, Americans love it so much we consume more than a billion pounds of peanut butter per year. Personally, I celebrate National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day almost every day of the week. On my lunch break I can be found reading our newest arrivals while enjoying a peanut butter and apple jelly sandwich. But if a sandwich isn’t for you, try a spoon full of peanut butter on a cracker, a stalk of celery, or better yet lick it directly off the spoon.
