Americans eat 3 lbs. of peanut butter per person every year – that is enough peanut butter to spread across the base of the Grand Canyon!
And did you know peanuts grow UNDERGROUND? They form on low growing vine bushes. The plant flowers above ground, but then grows into the soil and matures into a peanut!
While at Blog Brûlée back in September, I learned straight from the mouth of The Peanut RD, Sherry Coleman, interesting facts about peanuts:
- 50% of all peanuts in the US are grown in Georgia
- Peanuts are harvested from September- November
- Peanuts are not nuts at all, they are legumes – like beans, pean, and lentils
- Recommendations on the introduction of peanuts to infants has recently changed. Click here to watch Sherry’s Facebook Live on this topic.
Peanut butter is also a prohibited item from the TSA, I learned this one hard way! While at Blog Brûlée I received some free samples from the Peanut Butter Co. I had the White Chocolate flavored and couldn’t wait to bring it home. However, my luggage got searched and the peanut butter was confiscated. Sigh.

Peanut Butter can be used for so much more than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – which the average child will eat more than 1,500 of before graduating high school!
