National Peanut Butter Day (January 24)  US Observance 
Peanut butter is a food paste made from ground dry roasted peanuts, which is sold as either "crunchy" or 'smooth' / "creamy" variety. Did you know that Peanut butter (and peanuts) provide protein, vitamins B3 and E, magnesium, folate, dietary fiber, arginine, and high levels of the antioxidant p-coumaric acid?

 Remember when you were a kid and ate peanut butter by the spoonfuls? Well today's the day you can enjoy a spoonful right out of the jar once again! To celebrate National Peanut Butter Day, bake some peanut butter cookies for the whole family and enjoy it with a glass of milk- or spread a bit of peanut butter and chocolate on toast and have a mid afternoon snack. 

We celebrate "National Peanut Butter Day" along with other peanut butter celebrations: 

          • Peanut Butter Lovers Month        • Peanut Butter Fudge Day 
          • Peanut Butter Cookie Day          • Peanut Butter & Jelly Day
