Though popular belief suggests that George Washington Carver invented peanut butter, this is not true. Different versions of Peanut in the paste or cheese forms existed as early as 1783, in places like Surinam, which were Dutch colonies then. Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, was the first to obtain a patent for peanut butter in 1884. John Harvey Kellogg got a patent for using Peanuts in his brand of Breakfast cereals, although he used them in a boiled form whereas Marcellus Gilmore used them in roasted form.
A few other names responsible for the popularity of peanut butter include Joseph Lambert, George Bayle, as well as, Joseph Rosefield. A few initial brands of peanut butter that became popular across the US include Shedd’s, Peter Pan, Jif, and Black Cat.
