JIF Peanut Butter

JIF Peanut Butter • this painting is sold

When we were young and attending elemetary school, our Mother would always pack our lunches. Sometimes it was Lebanon Baloney and Cheese, sometimes Peanut Butter and Jelly ... but my favorite was the 'fluffernutter' ... Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Fluff on white bread.

We would reuse our same lunch bag all week - which my Mother would marker on our names. She would include a dessert - my favorite being Butterscotch Krimpets ... and always include a little note. We walked a mile to school in all sorts of weather ... when it rained, we wore our rubbers and carried umbrellas, when it snowed we had our snowboots and mittens ... but no matter the weather, we always carried our lunch bag. Thanks Mom xo

Fun Tidbits

Peanut: The peanut is NOT a nut! It's a legume and a member of the pea family.

Peanut butter was first introduced to the general public at the 1904 World's Fair.

JIF began marketing Creamy Jif in 1958. Extra Crunchy Jif made its debut in 1974. The name 'Jif' was chosen because it was easy to say, spell and remember.

People in the U.S. eat, on average, 7 pounds of peanuts and peanut products per person, per year.

270 million pounds of Jif are consumed in the U.S. each year. That's enough to make 2 billion peanut butter sandwiches, or to spread a football field with a layer 55 feet thick! (Now, there's a thought that'll stick to the roof of your mouth!)

Choosy mothers choose Jiff. Jiff is OK, but I like the Smuckers natural crunchy. Nice work here by the way.
