NEXT UP: Peanut Butter & Co, NYC

Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Day everyone!!

My favorite sandwich ever definitely deserves to have its own special day. Of course, I can't let this monumental occasion slip past without some sort of blog post dedicated to the great PB&J. In fact, this is an excellent opportunity to talk about a fabulous food haunt in NYC that knows quite a bit about peanut butter sandwiches...

Peanut Butter & Co is a company that produces all-natural peanut butter in whimsical flavors, such as Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, White Chocolate Wonderful, and Mighty Maple. Sure, you could just order one of these jars online, but if you're in NYC, you MUST stop by the company's sandwich shop.

I was able to visit this mecca for peanut butter worshippers last summer. I spent a while perusing the menu. Choices ranged from sweet (PB-banana-honey!) to savory (Spicy PB with chilled grilled chicken?) to freaky (PB and pickles?? Peanut butter BLT?!).

I settled on a White Chocolate Wonderful Sandwich: two pieces of soft wheat bread were spread with white chocolate PB, orange marmalade, and almond slices. The menu advertised it as a "peanutty creamsicle."

This sandwich tasted more like a dessert than a lunch (despite the carrot sticks on the side), but it was delicious. Even if you can't make it out to the sandwich shop, I recommend perusing the menu online to get ideas for how to spruce up your own future PB&Js.

Although, a plain homemade PB&J will always have my heart.

Pin It!
