Americans Go Nuts for Peanuts

Recent research shows that Americans eat peanuts more often than any other nut, and about half of consumers eat peanut butter at least once a week. We’re not surprised!

Peanuts contain more energy-boosting protein than any other nut and have more than 30 vitamins and nutrients, making them a Superfood. They are also an affordable source of 7 grams of protein and really convenient–you can take a pack with you or stir peanut butter in a smoothie or your oatmeal. When you combine the value, nutrition and flavor of peanuts and peanut butter, Americans really get a nice bang for their buck!

In honor of National Peanut Month, we took a look at the top 5 ways people like to eat peanuts and peanut butter.
