(CNN) — We’re celebrating the best couple in history, and you know we aren’t foolin’ around because it’s April 2. Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!

Even Barbie and Ken didn’t last, but peanut butter and jelly – or “PB&J” if you’re into acronyms — will always be inseparable, timeless and incredibly delicious.

Back in 2002, a survey revealed that the average PB&J-loving American eats 1,500 sandwiches before graduating high school. Now, that’s love.It is an easy sandwich to slap together on your way out the door in the morning. For those who don’t have time to spread peanut butter and jelly from two different jars, Smuckers made it even easier in 1968 when they introduced “Goober,” a jar with alternating stripes of peanut butter and jelly.

Of course, PB&J doesn’t restrict you to just these two complementary companions – toss in marshmallow fluff, bananas, honey, maple syrup, hazelnut spread, raisins, or even cheese, potato chips, bacon, pickles or onions.

If you want to try something a little different but still kid-friendly, peanut butter and jelly French toast is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. But, let us know in the comments below your favorite way to PB&J – and if you’re adding anything funky to mix up your sandwich.
