National Peanut Butter Day is a day to celebrate America’s favorite nut butter. The annual observance has its roots in the 1890s when Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, an American physician, and health care reformer, created peanut butter for patients at his Battle Creek Sanitarium because he believed that it could help prevent both constipation and obesity.
One of his methods was grinding roasted peanuts into a paste with sugar or honey to make them more palatable for people who had trouble chewing nuts. To honor the occasion on January 24th this year, here are some fun facts about National Peanut Butter Day you may not know!
