If you have a peanut allergy, or have traumatic peanut butter associations, stop reading immediately. Even flicking your eyes over this post could cause a severe reaction, because friends, today we're celebrating the spread most near and dear to our hearts: peanut butter.

On National Peanut Butter Day, we seek to do justice to this nut butter, which has been our steadfast companion. Whether you're in the culinary capital of the world, or pinching pennies in a dorm room, a PB & J tastes like home. But jelly isn't the only thing peanut butter plays well with. From soups to salads to chocolate delights, our old friend PB is practically everywhere -- which is just the way we like it. Now go forth, turn up the volume, and celebrate today in all of its glory. If you don't have a stomachache by the end, you're doing it wrong.
