On the website for the book Creamy and Crunchy: An Informal History of Peanut Butter, the All-American Food, Jon Krampner includes some links to various songs about peanut butter and peanuts. We could hardly resist posting a video here as well, so here’s “Peanut Butter,” by The Marathons. The song is great and the video documents the process of making peanut butter.
Here’s Krampner’s description:
This classic hit from 1961, almost a note-for-note copy of the version by the Olympics. It features a video from the Georgia Peanut Commission that shows the life cycle of peanut butter from the field to the factory. The standard peanut butter song. Recommended viewing and listening.
