If you're looking for something to do today then I hope you're not allergic to peanuts because it's National Peanut Butter Day!  This sticky treat is so well loved that you don't need to ask why it's a holiday.  Let's get right into celebrating National Peanut Butter Day!


As with almost all other food holidays, there's no reason for this particular day to be chosen but the flavor of peanut butter is so well liked that it almost demands some type of celebration. So why not celebrate today?  Peanut butter first got it start hundreds of years ago in a peanut paste form. The Aztecs would mash up peanuts which wouldn't exactly make it spreadable but it was much more natural tasting.  Later things like sugar and molasses were added to make it a little sweeter. Then the addition of vegetable oil was brought about to make it easier to spread.
In the late 1800's, the Kelloggs brothers both came up with their own versions of peanut butter. And in the early 1900's, Dr. Ambrose Straub patented a machine to make peanut butter so that toothless older folk could get protein. What a good, lip smacking idea!  You can get peanut butter in a variety of ways whether it's smooth, crunchy or natural. The natural version may need stirred up but it helps you avoid the trans fat in partially hydrogenated oils. And I'm sure I don't need to tell you that there are a variety of different products that come in peanut butter flavor.  People love their peanut butter!


So how can you celebrate today?  Well, you could easily make yourself a peanut butter sandwich or some peanut butter toast. Or go with the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Or why not go to the store and buy a wide variety of different peanut butters and then taste each one and figure out which is your favorite.  You may end up falling in love with a new type of peanut butter today!
Or you could make things interesting by having a friendly competition with your friends. Each of you have a cup of peanut butter and you compete to see who can finish theirs off first. Make sure you have something to drink on hand and enjoy the laughter as you all try to clean the sticky goodness of peanut butter off of the roof of your mouth and gums.  Or you could go to the store and pick up a variety of different products that are flavored with peanut butter. You could have a peanut butter milkshake, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, peanut butter crackers, peanut butter cookies, Peanut Butter Crunch cereal, put some peanut butter icing on a cake, grab a candy bar with peanut butter in it and so many different types of products. Trust me, you won't run out of ways to enjoy the flavor of peanut butter today.  Even bodybuilding supplements come in peanut butter flavor!  I hope you have a wonderful day full of peanut buttery goodness!
