peanutclustersNational Peanut Cluster Day is March 8th.

A bunch of peanuts + melted chocolate = peanut clusters

This very simple treat has been popular for a long time. In facts, in 1931, one department of the Emporia Wholesale Coffee Company “employed up to 20 women in the winter months to produce one to two tons of chocolate peanut clusters daily“. During World War II, the company “shipped approximately 50,000 pounds of chocolate peanut clusters weekly for consumption by those on the fighting front.” [1]

May sure to enjoy a peanut cluster today!
