Do You Eat Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwiches?

Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Although I ate them frequently when I was still in school, now I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich maybe once a year. I don't know what it is about this classic all American sandwich combination but it optimizes the school lunch. My mom is a preschool teacher and everyday she makes herself a peanut butter and jelly (grape) sandwich. She eats this lunch at school but when she is at home, she makes her other lunchtime staples (turkey and crackers, grilled cheeses, cream cheese and pretzels). Which makes me wonder, do people only eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in school? What about you reader, do you eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

I love apricot jam on my pbj's, but my standby is strawberry jam. peanut butter and bananna is good too- especially with the crunchy pb, honey mixed in!

I love them for breakfast. They keep me full until lunch. It's also fun to try different jellies with the peanut butter, but I always go back to my favorite.... Strawberry! ~SwtAsSgr~

I think a PB & J sandwich is yummy when you are on the beach all day. Pack that baby up and have a cool drink on hand..sit on your beach blanket or chair and enjoy! Oh..having some potato chips with it is yummy, too! :) I especially love homeade jam.

I never liked the idea of PBJ... I either have it with just peanut butter or just jam. I doubt i'll ever try it...

PBJs are great. Plus with different kind of jellies and jams there are tons of possibilities. Grape, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, marionberry, blueberry, apricot, peach, boysenberry, mixed fruit spread, even bananas and/or honey!

It's funny. I do love a good pb&j, but that last couple times I ate one I was working at a school.
Not only yes, but I eat so many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that Peter Pan should pay me! It's the perfect cure for a sweet tooth when you don't want to totally destroy your diet. I sure do wish they would've recalled the tainted Peanut Butter sooner though. My family went through about 8 7 pound tubs of Peter Pan between the dates that it was said to be tainted. Luckily, we're all still kicking.

Peanut butter sandwiches are awesome- though I am partial to honey, banana, and pb sandwiches. I've found that its one of the few things that keep me full. I lost five pounds eating peanut butter sandwiches for lunch. Great source of protein and good fats.

I never really liked them when I was growing up. I do love a fluffer-nutter every now and then.

Colormesticky... do you really consider jelly a fruit? PBJ is always a standby when I don't have time in the morning to make lunch for the day. Yeah, and I'm still in school too, but I will def be bringing PBJ with me when I start working soon as a nurse!

Nope, I don't like fruit.

Thats so funny, I just had one for lunch today! I didn't even know it was PB&J Day! I love them with bananas too. Sometimes when I get a craving for something sweet, but we don't have anything in the house I'll eat a half PB&J sandwich and it usually does the trick!
