Peanut, the nut behind the spread
March is National Peanut Month
Peanut Butter. Spending approximately $800 million a year on this spread, it is safe to say it is a love of many, if not most, Americans. Through its various applications on toast, in a sandwich, in a pie, and the always-favorite: with chocolate, peanut butter has stolen the hearts of the American public. What about the nut behind the spread? Texas Peanut Producers Board and others celebrate the nut everyday of the year, but for the month of March, the peanut stands in the spotlight, away from the shadow of the beloved spread. March is National Peanut Month and a perfect time to recognize all the peanut can do.
