National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month

National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month

Why is peanut butter so popular? Why does it inspire such devotion that November is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month? Why is peanut butter present in so many different food combinations, from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to peanut butter-filled pretzels?
The mystery of peanut butter goes back to its uncertain origins. Every schoolchild is taught that George Washington Carver invented peanut butter as one of the many uses he discovered for the peanut, but it is a myth. He never invented peanut butter. A peanut paste may have been used by the Aztecs, but the modern version of peanut butter didn’t come about until the late-1800s. And it wasn’t until the meat shortage caused by World War II that peanut butter cemented its position as one of the few food staples.
Perhaps it’s the combination of sweet and salty flavors that make peanut butter so appealing. It probably helps that there are a variety of textures from smooth and creamy to crunchy designed to suit any palate. In any case, it pairs well with any number of other foods, especially chocolate.
The marvel of peanut butter is never more apparent than in Sugar Plum’s exquisite Peanut Butter Truffles. Our Peanut Butter Truffles contain a core of thick and creamy peanut butter and wrap it in a shell of our signature milk chocolate. These truffles are enough to impress even the serious gourmet of peanut butter. Show your love for all of the peanut butter lovers in your life with Sugar Plum’s Peanut Butter Truffles.
