It’s National Peanut Butter Day! Creamy or Chunky? The National Peanut Board states that men and the West Coast prefer crunchy while women, kids, and the East Coast prefer creamy. Personally, I like my peanut butter creamy.
Did you know that it takes 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter? There are four different types of peanuts grown in the U.S. Around 80% of all peanuts grown are called runners, which are primarily used for peanut butter. Virginia peanuts are nicknamed “ballpark peanuts” and enjoyed in the shell. Spanish peanuts are produced for salted peanuts, peanut candy, and peanut butter. Valencia peanuts come in last and are a slightly sweeter peanut used for all-natural peanut butter.
The b. nutty sampler pack offers a 2oz. Jar of 10 flavors! The delish flavors include Blissful Blueberries, Coco-nutty, Irresistible Pretzel, Peacefully Plain (Creamy), Peacefully Plain (Crunchy), S’more Dreams, Skinny Dip, Simply Salted Caramel, a Seasonal Selection, and Totally Toffee.
