Catch the wafting aroma of peanuts roasting while visiting the small borough of New Bethlehem.
The borough is home to a J.M. Smucker’s plant, which makes a variety of peanut butter products. The whole community gathers annually for the Peanut Butter Festival in September. Peanut butter lovers, consider entering your favorite recipe in the festival’s “All Things Peanut Butter Cook-off” competition. The local chamber of commerce even offers a free jar of PB for contestants to use in their creation.
Char-Val Candies, the hometown candy maker, has many perennial PB favorites as well as a festival special peanut-shaped candy. We’re sure thankful for this PB-making town!
