National Peanut Butter Lover's Day is celebrated March 1. Peanut butter was first introduced to America at the Universal Exposition in St. Louis in 1904. C.H. Sumner sold $705.11 worth of this popular new treat at his concession stand. Today, Americans spend almost 800 million dollars each year on peanut butter.

Whether you prefer it smooth, chunky or natural, peanut butter is the perfect addition to any snack.

It goes with practically everything: crackers, pretzels, celery, carrots, apples, bananas, chocolate and much more.

The average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before he or she graduates high school.

Women and children like creamy peanut butter and men prefer crunchy. And did you know that a phobia of getting peanut butter stuck on the roof of you mouth exists? It is called arachibutyrophobia. Also, by the time most Americans are 18 years old, they will have eaten about 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and that's a lot.

Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein and healthy fats, and can help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. For the healthiest choice, look for brands that have no oil or sugar added.
