Creamy and Crunchy: An Informal History of Peanut Butter, the All-American Food tells you everything you could ever want to know about peanut butter. The book is well-researched and well-written, and it's crammed full of interesting facts and trivia. (Did you know, for example, that Americans eat more than a billion pounds of peanut butter each year? Or that the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth is called arachibutyrophobia?)
In Jon Krampner's peanut butter masterpiece, you'll discover the history of peanuts and learn about how they arrived in the United States. You'll read about about Peter Pan, Skippy, and Jif, and about the battle that determined just how many peanuts have to be present in a jar of peanut butter. You might even find a favorite new recipe.
Read and enjoy--preferably with a peanut butter sandwich by your side.
