National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day

Over 100 years ago, in the late 1920s, the price of peanut butter declined, and the sandwich became very popular with children. According to Livestrong, a normal PB&J offers 27% of your daily fat and 22% of your calories.

As a huge lover of peanut butter and grape jelly, my mouth was watering as I read through that list of ways the National Day Calendar suggested to observe this annual celebration. Here are a handful of my favorites:
