(RNN) – Pass the spread, it’s National Peanut Butter Day.
It’s clear that Americans love the stuff. And it’s not just North Americans.
There’s evidence that the Inca Indians in South America were the first to grind peanuts to make peanut butter, according to the National Peanut Board.
In the United States, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, yes of cereal fame, invented a version of peanut butter in 1895.
Peanut butter was first introduced at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904.
The folks at Foodimentary offer a couple of facts about the tasty spread:
- 60% of people like creamy peanut butter over crunchy.
- Women & children prefer creamy, while most men like crunchy.
Where do you stand on this issue? America wants to know.
