Top 20 peanut butter puns for the whole family to enjoy!

Peanut butter puns provide excellent entertainment any time of the year, but they are especially good for sharing on National Peanut Butter Day (which is January 24 in the United States).

As a society, we are totally nuts about peanut butter! It pairs well with a wide variety of foods, provides a satisfying source of healthy fat, and tastes absolutely delicious. In fact, the average American consumes 22 tablespoons of it per year, or about 700 million pounds, in total. This spread is such a common food that talking and joking about it comes quite naturally. Here are some more of my favorite puns (they are all clean and kid-friendly):
