Information About Peanut Butter

This silly song says a peanut was sitting on a railroad track, along came a train and the peanut was peanut butter!

Is it really that easy to make peanut butter? That you just need to squish a peanut? Peanut butter is an edible paste made from ground and roasted peanuts. The product is well-liked in North America, England, Australia, the Philippines and Indonesia.

It is often used to make sandwiches, sometimes with other ingredients like fruit jellies, or even bananas. In the United States, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are popular.

The United States is one of the largest exporters of peanut butter; exporting means sending products out of the country to be sold in other countries.

Peanuts are a native plant in the tropical regions of the Western Hemisphere, and there is evidence that the Aztec Indians made peanut butter hundreds and hundreds of years ago.

Peanut butter as we know it today received a US patent in 1884; the patent was granted to a man from Quebec, Canada.

You might enjoy reading about the history of the peanut. January 24 is National Peanut Butter Day in the United States.

The lyrics may be different but we still get peanut butter

A peanut sat on a railroad track
His heart was all a flutter
A train came rollin' down the track
Toot, toot peanut butter.

Another slight variation

A peanut sat on a railroad track,
His heart was all a flutter,
Round the bend came number ten.
Toot! Toot! Peanut butter!

Oh, no, no, no, no, no! That second couplet in your featured version is awful! It doesn't add anything to the narrative and it detracts from symmetry and meter and everything we seek in a poem! Please reconsider featuring that clumsy attempt at wordplay. It hurts my heart to read it! Here is the correct and original version of the poem: "A peanut sat on the railroad tracks, his heart was all a-flutter. Along came a train-- the five fifeen...toot, toot! Peanut butter!"
