Peanut is an unincorporated community and coal town in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, United States.

Peanut was, because of its name, chosen by the Peanut Advisory Board for a celebration of peanut butter[2] and, on November 6, 1993, a 40-foot (12 m) long peanut butter and jelly sandwich – claimed to be the world's largest – was created in Peanut.[3][4]
