Celebrate America’s Favourite Sandwich And Peanut Butter – 2nd April 2021 Is National Peanut Butter And Jelly Day!


It’s been widely reported that the average child in the US will have eaten a whopping 1,500 Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches before they graduate high school!* America’s original SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is the perfect match for Jelly (or Jam to us here in the UK), making the ultimate Stateside sandwich.  

To celebrate National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day on 2 April, families in the UK can also enjoy the yummy taste of American-style smooth, creamy and delicious SKIPPY® Peanut Butter, which is widely available in the UK and a good source of protein for growing kids.

What makes SKIPPY® Peanut Butter so different is the sweeter peanuts sourced from The Americas, which have a finer grind which just melts in the mouth. Fans of crunchier peanut butter can also enjoy the Extra Crunchy variety which contains large peanut pieces in a deliciously creamy mix.

Whether you’re Smooth or Crunchy, it’s time to grab a jar and celebrate the marriage of peanut butter and jelly. Why not try this classic recipe or add Chipotle or even some cinnamon toast, to really go the extra American mile?
