See? this kid is really happy about America's favorite sandwich!

As the pixelated banana would say: “It’s peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time!” Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly day and the question about America’s most beloved sandwich is: how do we prefer our peanut butter: crunchy or creamy? According to a recent Welch’s survey, it was a close call, but 53 percent of Americans surveyed would choose creamy over crunchy peanut butter. Sorry crunch fans, it was a close one, but the classic texture of peanut butter won out.

No matter how you slice it, Americans love their peanut butter. More than half of those surveyed said that they eat PB&J 1-5 times per month, and they were divided on whether or not the proper sandwich should be sliced in half or not.

Celebrate this glorious nutty day with a few of the Daily Meal’s favorite peanut butter and jelly-inspired recipes including a peanut butter and jelly shake; a peanut butter, jelly, and bacon melt (trust us, it’s good!); and peanut butter and jelly French toast.

Peanut Butter

When Food Network star Ina Garten bantered on national TV with CNN&rsquos Anderson Cooper about their rediscovered love of the PB&J last December, it was no surprise to me that the classic all-American peanut butter sandwich had risen back to the top of our collective food conscious &ndash not only filling our bellies, but soothing our souls during trying times. And that&rsquos what&rsquos special about the work I do for America&rsquos peanut farmers at the National Peanut Board (NPB).

The seven-month global deployment is the UK Carrier Strike Group’s maiden operational deployment. The nine ships, plus 32 aircraft and 3,700 personnel, will route through the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean and on to the Indo-Pacific. Given the proximity to Russian forces in the Black Sea and Beijing’s assertive claims to disputed areas in the South China Sea, international tensions could be inflamed.

Creamy vs. Crunchy: What your peanut butter preference says about your personality

Whether or not you like your peanut butter creamy or crunchy may actually say more about you than you think, according to new research.

The study examined the peanut butter and snacking preferences of 2,000 Americans – evenly split by their preference of crunchy vs. creamy – and found enjoying a crunchy peanut butter may make you have a cheerier outlook on life.

Sixty-three percent of those who prefer crunchy peanut butter describe themselves as optimists, compared to 56% of those who prefer creamy.

Other personality traits for creamy fans included being more of an early bird and more introverted – whereas their crunchy counterparts were more likely to be night owls and extroverts.

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Jif ahead of National Peanut Butter Lovers Day, the survey found that a third of all respondents described themselves as “extremely” passionate about their peanut butter preference.

Americans are so passionate, in fact, that rather than asking your date what they do for a living or where they’ll see themselves in five years – you may want to ask about their peanut butter preference. The results showed that nearly half of all respondents said it would be a deal-breaker to find out their date is on the opposite side of the creamy vs. crunchy debate.

Sixty-three percent of all respondents even said they will pass on the peanut butter altogether if it’s not the kind they prefer.

When asked to reflect on their childhoods, the results showed creamy fans were teased more over their peanut butter preference than their crunchy counterparts growing up (47% vs. 28%).

Surprisingly, those who prefer creamy were more likely to be judged for their preference than those who prefer crunchy – at 50% compared to 32%.

And 68% of creamy peanut butter fans said they’ve felt pressure to pick crunchy to fit in – compared to just 50% of crunchy fans.

“We love to see Americans’ passion about their peanut butter,” said Jake Calhoun, Director of Brand Strategy for the Jif Brand. “Regardless of which type of peanut butter you prefer the results show over a third (35%) of Americans prefer to eat their peanut butter directly from the source. That’s part of the reason we introduced Jif Squeeze, which allows peanut butter lovers everywhere to measure out perfect amount of peanut butter for recipes and smoothies or enjoy straight from the pouch on apples, celery or crackers – all without the mess.”

Both groups do have some common ground, however, through their love of animals. When asked about their preference to dogs or cats – a third of both parties shared they love both species equally.

Another common ground for both parties comes down to making a classic PB&J – as both parties prefer grape jelly over strawberry.

“As we gear up for one of our favorite holidays – National Peanut Butter Lovers Day – on March 1, we hope American’s are able to enjoy their favorite peanut butter, no matter what their preferences are,” continued Calhoun. “National Peanut Butter Lovers Day celebrates all types, from creamy and crunchy, straight from the jar and straight from the pouch.”

It’s National PB&J Day! How Do We Prefer Our Peanut Butter? - Recipes

National Mustard Day (August 5)? National Split Pea Soup Week (the second week of November)? The volume of so-called “national food holidays” tends to make me uncomfortable in the same way that overly sentimental greeting cards do–the thought is largely inoffensive, but the meaning generic and diluted. (Though maybe not when it comes to National Margarita Day. That one I think I’d keep in regular rotation.)

I would have overlooked National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day today, except that it seems to have stirred up the conversation around the peanut butter and pickle variation and this is a sandwich I feel compelled to advocate for. It being my snack of preference as a picky-eater kid, I was honestly shocked to discover how many people think this is a dish entirely too gross to even consider tasting. For me, it carries the memory of sneaking in late from high school dates and hanging out in the quiet of the kitchen, all the ingredients laid out on the counter while I made my preparations by the dim glow of the stove’s overhead light. Inevitably, my mom would hear me clanking around and get out of bed to ask how my night had been. Then she’d shuffle back to her room, wondering aloud why I hadn’t bothered to eat properly while I was out.

Was my PB&P just a passing teenage infatuation? While for some reason I had largely abandoned this childhood sweetheart when I left Ohio, our reconnection was as delicious as I could have hoped for. A suspicious “what are you eating?” inquiry and taste bite request from my husband had him making his own before my plate was clean. Should you wish to take a pass on this sweet and savory treat, well, the more for us. But you won’t know what you’re missing.


Stick to natural or homemade peanut butter when feeding the dog

Of course if you’re reading this, you likely know that Peanut Butter is a favorite treat for just about any dog (unless of course they are allergic to peanuts). And like any treat, in moderation it’s fine to share this tasty spread with your furry friend.

Our only caution is to make sure to avoid Xylitol which can be found in some peanut butters. Xylitol is a sugar substitute often found in sugar-free products like chewing gum, toothpaste, breath mints, chewable vitamins and baked goods. It is safe for people, but toxic to dogs. It’s not usually found in natural peanut butters and so if you stick to natural brands or homemade of course, you can avoid any complications.
