I Love PB&J

I’m a big fan of peanut butter & jelly. Big fan. And several years ago I had this great idea to open a gourmet cafe called PB&J’s. It would be a trendy little spot serving nothing but delicious pb&j sandwiches. All kinds of peanut butter to choose from. Varieties of jellies and jams and preserves. Your choice of fresh-baked breads. the works. I still think about it from time to time but doubt where I live now would be very receptive  to such an establishment. That kind of eatery might fly in New York or Seattle or maybe Boston.

But I still love pb&j. Really, I do. I eat it every day for lunch and look forward to lunch every day.

Weird, you say, and I don’t care. Sorry. I just love it. Why do I love it so? Let me count the reasons:

  1. It’s good.
  2. It’s peanut buttery.
  3. It’s fruity.
  4. It’s creamy.
  5. It’s good.

 So what about you? Are you a fan of pb&j?

  1. Peanut butter is also very good for you, and for me, being a vegetarian its a source of protein. What more can you ask for?


  2. Will the members of the Darlington Society be required to share your love of PB&J.. 🙂


    • No, Ben, but it sure wouldn’t hurt. Then we could have long, thrilling chats about the best combinations and favorite jellies. Chunky or creamy peanut butter; jelly vs. jam. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? 🙂


  3. I’m right there with you, Mike! No Nutello for me…give me the Jif, blackberry jam, and a cold glass of milk. Perfect meal!


  4. I love pb&j, but only grape jelly. 😉 And I am allergic to gluten, so my bread choices are pathetic now. 😦 But I still periodically eat a pb&j sandwich!


  5. Hey on another note I just saw a 2-n-1 copy of The Hunted and Scream in my Walmart in Clinton, Tn. They had it on the end cap in the book section (where it could be seen easily). It’s about time!!! I about picked it up and started bestowing the virtues of your great books right in the middle of the Walmart.


  6. I don’t know if I looove pb & j sandwiches but they are definetly a go to comfort food when I want something sweet. However, my youngest daughter would not know what to do if there was not pb in the house! Now, she loooves peanut butter! One of my daughters is diabetic so it’s pb n sugar free marmalade for her. But, pb n j, grape jelly of course for the other 2 kids, myself and my husband.


  7. I like pb&j’s, but I love eating crunchy peanut butter off a spoon. As a small business consultant, I would have to advise against a pb&j restaurant, however.


  8. Okay, this post made me chuckle!! PB&J eatery huh? That’s a unique idea! PB&J with a glass of milk is classic and good, but a PB&J with a bowl of homemade vegetable soup can’t be beat!!

    Alas, I’m too full of Chinese from lunch today to even consider eating again today! 🙂


  9. I’m allergic to peanuts, but sunflower butter sandwiches are a staple for me. 🙂


  10. I LOVE it! But it has to be grape jelly! : )


  11. I sure do like a good PB&J sammy… but even better i love PB&H!!!
