November – National Peanut Butter Month

There’s one thing that I can say with confidence…peanut butter does stick to the roof of your month. Now during phase two of the “Frog Days of Fall”, we notice that November is National Peanut Butter month. How many school lunches have been packed over the years with peanut butter and/or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

There are a number of peanut butter brands (other than the private label store brands). I remember the first peanut butter my mother used to serve when I was a kid was Peter Pan (probably popular because they used to show the Peter Pan play on TV every year). Then along came Jif, Skippy, Smuckers, Smart Balance and many more.

Even though we kids used to think of peanut butter as a snack, it is loaded with protein and good for you. According to the National Peanut Board:

“Peanuts are a powerhouse of protein. With 7 grams per serving, peanuts contain more protein than any other nut. Protein is one of the essential nutrients in life. It is important not only for growing children but also for maintaining muscles, bones and skin throughout life.”

So, mom’s were right all along packing those pb&j sandwiches all those years.  And, many restaurants offer pb&j sandwiches on their lunch menus for kids and adults. And you may remember, Elvis’ favorite snack was a peanut butter and banana sandwich (not sure if he really did put bacon on that).

Oh, here’s a second thing I know with confidence. If you’re a radio announcer, it’s not a great idea to be eating peanut butter while you’re on the air, as not only does it stick to the roof of your mouth, but sometimes your mouth and everything in it seem to stick together, right before you have to read the weather forecast!
