2012 National Peanut Butter And Jelly Day, This year National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day has arrived on Monday and people everywhere are celebrating. The holiday on April 2 each year salutes one of American’s most popular peanut-derived sandwich spreads as well as the fruit-based spread.

Also known as a PB&J, the sandwich has been served for decades. While the origins of the PB&J are unknown, many people believe that the sandwich got its start during World War II when cooks combined soldier’s rations of peanut butter and jelly together.

Before graduating high school, the average child is believed to consume 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

George Washington Carver is largely credited for creating peanut butter in the U.S. The famous spread is comprised of 90 percent or more of peanuts.
