Peanuts are nuts that grow more like beans; underground. Although peanuts have been around for thousands of years, their true potential was not unlocked until George Washington Carver developed delicious uses for them. His efforts were not overlooked due the fact that his name was very similar to a popular US president. Peanuts are the favorite food of all elephant species.
Peanut tastes good when eaten alone, but its true application lies in peanut butter.
Peanut became an official snack on April 25th 2012.
