It’s National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!

What a combo.  The only sandwich I looked forward to for many years as a kid.  Never liked the crunchy peanut butter until about 20 years ago.

My son eats a PB&J every single day for lunch.  Hoping that changes soon.  So do you have any additions to the two ingredients when you make this popular sandwich?  Maybe some chips, actual peanuts?  While you think, enjoy the fun facts of the PB&J!

A study by the Harvard School of Public Health reveals that peanut butter is good for weight loss!

Nutritionist Sophie Dylan tells The Sun; ”It’s true, nuts are a high fat, calorie-dense addition to any meal or snack. However, to villainise nuts would be to ignore the multiple benefits of including healthy dietary fats in our diet. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, such as those found in nuts, help to lower total cholesterol (and LDL), whilst increasing HDL (good cholesterol), and intake has been shown to aid with weight-loss and the reduction in body fat.”

The Daily Mirror claims women are shaving their legs with peanut butter because of how smooth it makes them.

London dermatologist Susan Mayou tells the paper: “Peanut butter has a moisturizing effect because it is oily. Even used just as a beauty product, it can be highly allergenic. It can bring the user out in hives and anyone using the same bathroom could be in danger of a contact rash.”

A survey by Peter Pan Peanut Butter reveals that the average person eats 2,984 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches over the course of their life. Other findings:

People magazine claims Renee Cupp, of Elizabethtown, North Carolina, named her daughter, Reese Eve, after her favorite candy, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Renee tells People magazine; “Everyone calls her �Rees-ee’. It’s our favorite candy for sure. We have it in the house almost all the time. We have the Half Pound Big Cup in our freezer and the Reese’s spread in our pantry. She loves her name. She always says �oh, little Reese Cup. I’m a little Reese Cup.’ She loves everything chocolate.”
