The iconic National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day is celebrated on April 2 to honor its role in making the best American breakfast and lunch sandwiches.
It is believed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches originate way back in the World War II. It was first prepared by American soldiers in the war at the time. After the war, the soldiers introduced the same concept among homes and the sale of peanut butter and jelly increased tremendously.

Today, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are common in preschool, high schools, homes and even offices as a favorite dish among Americans.

And there has been competition all over the world to make the biggest peanut and jelly sandwiches. So far, Pennsylvania takes the lead of a 40ft long sandwich which consisted of 150lbs of peanut butter and 50lbs of jelly. This is was in 1993 and no other state has surpassed that.

To mark the National Peanut butter and Jelly Day on April 2, you are free to indulge in as many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as you wish. Whether you like your peanut butter and jelly on cupcakes, toast, pie, sushi, donuts, fudge or cookies you are free to choose.
