Hard to believe, but peanut butter has only been around for a little more than 100 years. Back in 1903 more than 300 uses for peanuts were created sparking the idea for peanut butter. According to the expert Peanut Butter Lovers, Kerma Products Company in Columbus, Ohio, started manufacturing peanut butter, and is still operating today.

Joseph Rosefield received the first patent for peanut butter that would stay fresh up to one year in 1922. One of the first businesses to use this process would be called Peter Pan. Soon after, Rosefield started producing peanut butter under the name Skippy, becoming the first company to produce crunchy-style peanut butter. Around 1955 Procter & Gamble started producing peanut butter, creating Jif. Jif is currently the world’s largest peanut butter business, making over 250,000 jars everyday.

Peanut butter is a widely loved product and on March 1 each year we celebrate National Peanut Butter Lovers Day. We are unsure who created this day but it is celebrated in many ways.
