Peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an iconic American dish. Celebrate National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day on April 2 in honor of the best breakfast and lunch sandwich ever.

It is thought that Julia Davis Chandler issued the first reference to peanut butter (or paste) paired with jelly on bread in the United States in 1901. Her article is found in the Boston Cooking School Magazine of Culinary Science and Domestic Economics. In the late 1920s, the price of peanut butter declined, and the sandwich became very popular with children.

According to the Peanut Board, during World War II, both peanut butter and jelly were part of the United States soldiers’ military ration list.
