Happy National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day

Two treats for National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day. We recommend having the drink first then the awesomest PB & J ever.

Ever wonder where it got started? According, to Wikipedia,

The first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread was rumored to be published in the United States by Julia Davis Chandler in 1901. By the late 1920s, this sandwich eventually moved down the class structure as the price of peanut butter declined. It became popular with children. During World War II, it is said that both peanut butter and jelly were found on U.S. soldiers’ military ration list, as claimed by the Peanut Board.
