(CNN) – Whipping up a peanut butter and jelly sandwich may not cost you as much as before.

All the fixings for peanut butter and jelly are cheaper now, thanks to inflation.

According to the Consumer Price Index, white bread prices have fallen 2.8 percent over the last year. Prices for canned fruit, which includes jelly, have fallen 0.7 percent. Peanut butter costs 3.8 percent less than it did last year.

So, do you prefer crunchy or creamy?

The National Peanut Board, a farmer-funded research group, says women and children tend to like the creamy stuff. Men prefer a crunchier spread.

The group estimates the average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating from high school.
