Very much a North American thing, at least in AR's days (and in the 40s and 50s, when I was growing up in the UK.)
My kids all eat it, but I can't stand the stuff. I sympathise with the individual on Chris Bonington's Annapurna expedition who stated that not only did he not eat peanut butter, but also would not share a tent with anyone who did.
My (Portuguese) wife feels the same way about Marmite, often discussed on this site. (My offspring, with true Canadian multiculturalism, like both -- though not, as far as I am aware, together.) I do find it odd that that delicacy never finds its way into AR.
As with many other aspects of the American Way of Life, PB is probably quite widespread (oops) in the UK now.
