5 Unexpected Ways to Enjoy PB&J

July 25, 2011

Peanut butter and jelly can easily be called America's most-loved snack.  It is a childhood favorite that carries itself into adulthood.  Most of these recipes call for smooth peanut butter, but if you are a chunky kind of person- go for it.  I recommend using different flavors of jelly to change it up a bit, you never know what combinations you'll end up loving.  Here are five fun and unexpected ways to eat this beloved pairing.
