Peanut Butter
BCOF Insignia
November 8, 2021 - Day 3288
Prompt: Prompt: November is Peanut Butter Lovers Month. Write a story, poem, or something about peanut butter.


I remember back in high school, what seems like forever ago now, I was on the Student Council and March rolled around. We decided to celebrate National Peanut Month by giving a talk about what peanuts are, how they're grown, and the benefits of eating peanuts and peanut butter. I was the one who was given the opportunity to wear the large peanut costume and host the talk. Being a huge peanut was fun. But anyway, the student council members were allowed to visit a peanut farm to see how it is all done, from planting to peanut butter production. It was awesome and we were able to taste raw peanuts, roasted peanuts, and the fresh peanut butter. I wouldn't advise eating peanuts raw, but if you had to they're edible - sort of. I was shocked at how simple the production of peanut butter is. You just take roasted peanuts and grind them up until they are the consistency of a paste. Super easy, right? Well it takes a whole heck of a lot of roasted peanuts to make even a little bit of peanut butter! You know, back then people really didn't consider peanut allergies like they do now days. Had they, I bet that fieldtrip would have never happened.

Nutty Facts

Did you know peanuts grow underground and prefer drier, sandy soil? They're like nodules that grow on the roots of the plants.
I also find it interesting that while peanut butter originated in Canada, the US is the largest exporter and consumer of the delicious creaminess.
