National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day – that beloved sandwich with peanut butter and jelly has its own day. The one they say that the average American eats thousands of them before they graduate high school.

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day

I love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I prefer strawberry jelly as my jelly flavor. Most people call these PB&J Sandwiches. This day is celebrated each year on April 2. The average American will have eaten over 2,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate from high school.

I have even made my own peanut butter, Cajun Peanut Butter using Cajun style Peanuts.

Most of what people report the earliest use of both peanut butter and jelly dates back to 1901 with a reference to Julia Davis Chandler. It wasn’t until the 1920’s the cost of peanut butter went down and the sandwich became popular. Even during the World War II (WWII), both peanut butter and jelly were part of the United States soldiers military ration list. That is according to the Peanut Board.

The J.M. Smucker Co. introduced Goober, in 1968, jarred product which combined peanut butter and jelly.

Anyways, I think it has been a long while since I have ate a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.

One thing to keep in mind, food allergies are on a rise, and peanuts being one of them.

    The End of an Era: Redbox Shuts Down All Kiosks — In a move that marks the end of an era, Redbox, the iconic DVD rental service, is shutting down all of its kiosks. This decision comes as part of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation by its parent company, Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment¹². For over two decades, Redbox has been a familiar sight at grocery stores, convenience stores, and Walmarts across the United States, offering a convenient way to rent movies and games. However, the rise of digital streaming services has significantly impacted the demand for physical media, leading to this unfortunate outcome. #Redbox
