The Deliciously Brief History of Peanut Butter

PeanutButterHistoryPerhaps one of the most favorite companions of chocolate, peanut butter is most certainly a popular flavor that many cannot live without. Can you imagine a world without peanut butter?  Before 1895, peanut butter didn’t exist in the way that we’ve grown to know it today. It was Dr. John Kellog, a practicing doctor from St. Louis who was looking for a protein substitute for those with poor teeth who created the world’s first peanut butter. Dr. Kellog simply ran peanuts through a meat grinder to create a paste that became known as peanut butter. His invention was introduced in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair.

Peanut butter grew in popularity throughout the depression years, and grew as a source of protein and ingredient for the candy industry. This was the time period where the Boyer Brothers invented the Mallo Cup and then shortly created the peanut butter cup, which quickly became a candy lover’s favorite treat. Peanut butter is still a favorite among everyone, and when combined with rich chocolate and placed in a convenient cup, the result is an undeniably deliciously sweet and amazing treat! If you love peanut butter, we’re sure you’ll love Boyer Peanut Butter Cups.
