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
WHY IS THIS A
As with almost all other food holidays, there's no reason
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
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
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
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 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
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
