5 Cool Things About Peanut Butter
“Don’t forget the peanut butter”. That is my son’s standing order whenever I pay a visit to the supermarket-which seems to be more and more frequently as my son enters a serious growth spurt. No matter how old he gets, PB&J sammies are one of his favorite foods. He can manhandle a jar of peanut butter like no other. So, upon learning that this month is National Peanut Butter month, today’s post was a total no-brainer. So, here goes a few fun facts about this delicious and beloved (by my son, at least) food.
“Choosy Moms choose Jif” Who else remembers those commercials?
- There is a phobia attached to peanut butter in which people are scared of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of their mouths, this is known as Arachibutyrophobia.
- People who live on the Eastern coast of America prefer creamy peanut butter while people living on West Coast like crunchy peanut butter. The reason behind this preference is unknown.(Personal Opinion: Crunchy PB is great when making homemade Peanut Butter cookies!)

- Peanut butter was first patented in Canada in the year 1884 by a man who lived in Quebec.
- The average American child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating high school, according to the National Peanut Board.
- Apparently, chocolate and jelly are not the only things peanut butter lovers like to combine this food with. I hear it goes pretty good with bacon and bananas. Seriously, in 1983, the Evening Independent decided to introduce their readers to something called the “Peanut Butter Banana Club.” The recipe calls for six (!) slices of bacon, one large banana, brown sugar, lemon juice, whole wheat bread, lettuce and crunchy peanut butter.
