National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day (Wednesday)

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day (Wednesday)

Where did BB + J come from??  American soldiers in World War II ‘invented’ the peanut butter and jelly sandwich simply by using what they had in their rations. After the soldiers returned home after the war, peanut butter and jelly sales soared.

Here are some facts from the National Peanut Board:

– The average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating from high school.

– Americans spend about $800 million dollars a year on peanut butter.
