November is National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. According to the Peanut Butter Lovers website, Americans will celebrate by eating more than 65 million pounds of peanut better during the Month of November.
Southern Peanut Growers, representing southeastern peanut farmers, started the celebration as Peanut Butter Lovers Day on November 4, 1990. November 4 marks the anniversary of the first patent for peanut butter, applied for by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg on November 4, 1895. It grew to a month-long celebration in 1995 when peanut butter celebrated its 100th birthday!
