April 2nd is National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready for a classic
because it's National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!
right; the sandwich that never goes out of style! Let's get
into celebrating National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Do you really need to ask why people would want to
this sandwich? How many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches do you think
you've eaten in your lifetime? Probably a good amount, huh? So why not
celebrate something that most people have eaten multiple times in their
lives? This is such a popular sandwich that a study conducted
2002 showed that most kids in the United States will have eaten on
average 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before they graduate
from high school! Now that's a popular sandwich!
All it takes is
some bread, peanut butter and jelly and you're set! But you aren't
limited when it comes to the type of bread, peanut butter or jelly you
use. You have different choices for each of the ingredients but I will
give you one simple suggestion. Don't pack a peanut butter and jelly
sandwich for lunch! When that jelly soaks into the bread it totally
ruins the awesomeness of the sandwich! Trust me on that one... but if
you think I'm wrong, go ahead and try it. You'll see! Are you
ready to slap a PB & J together?
So how can you celebrate today? Well, for a lot of you it's
going to be really easy. Just head to your cabinet and pull
your peanut butter, head to the fridge and grab your jelly and then
slap the two in between some bread. BAM, celebrating!
since it is a special occasion then why don't you make a double or
triple decker PB & J? Or maybe try a new kind of
Or try some crunchy, smooth, natural or some other kind of peanut
butter out to see which one you like the best. I've even seen
peanut butter and honey in one jar. You could even try out
red raspberry, strawberry, blueberry or any other jam or jelly you can
They even have something called Goober
that's peanut butter and jelly in one jar! Or you could skip
that and buy some Uncrustables which are sealed, crustless peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches. There are so many options, huh?
And to be honest, go ahead and look at the title of this
holiday... it doesn't say SANDWICH! So you could make
that includes those two ingredients and you'd be celebrating in
style. How about a cake that's sweetened with jelly and then
make a peanut butter frosting? How's a peanut butter and
milkshake sound? And what if you coated chicken with jelly,
grilled it and then dipped it in peanut butter? If you try
last one let me know how it is! Regardless of how you decide
celebrate today, I hope it's full of PB's and J's!
