Why National Peanut Butter Fudge Day?
Peanut Butter is a staple used in American Households for almost a century now. Its simple constituents and yet the rich taste is adored by children and adults as well! It can be spread on bread to make a sandwich, topped on ice cream, or whipped to make fudge!
Fudges were printed in many periodicals and advertised in the U.S. during the 1880s. Fudges became popular in all households as the cost of refined sugar started decreasing and it did not require any specific equipment. It became popular as a fancy and affordable candy substitute!
Legend tells us that the Peanut Butter Fudge was accidentally discovered during the 1800s. The term “fudge” actually means to “mess up” or “cheat”. The fudge seems to be invented when a chef’s batch of caramel got “fudged” accidentally!
