I want to like you PB&J

Written by Biggie on April 2, 2013

April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day.  The Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich is an American staple.  It’s the perfect combo for a sandwich- it’s quick, easy and filling. It is something I am sure you’ve eaten and enjoy unless you have a nut allergy. I however do NOT like PB&J.  I don’t have a peanut allergy and I only enjoy Peanut Butter if chocolate is involved. I’m not sure if this is true but I’ve heard your taste buds change every 7 years.   I try every year to eat a PB&J sandwich and I’ve never finished a single one. I want to like PB&J sandwiches yet my biggest problem is that I am not a fan of the after taste that the peanut butter has.  I’ve tried every type of peanut butter out there: chunky, smooth, extra creamy, whipped, honey, and even all natural Peanut Butter and none of them have me finishing a PB&J sandwich.  I don’t think the jelly is the problem in the equation- though I think I’m partial to Strawberry over grape.

As a parent I tell my daughter to always try everything twice-once to see if you like and then again just to make sure.  So  I practice what I preach and  continue to try the PB&J challenge until one day my taste buds tell me I’ll like it.  Just hope by then I still have taste buds to know its PB&J since by age 60, most people have lost half of their taste buds!

I am not sure why I so badly want to enjoy a PB&J sandwich, especially since most of your PB&J consumption happens during your adolescences. They say the average American student will have consumed approximately 1,500 PB&J sandwiches upon graduation from high school.

Do you like PB&J?  What kind of peanut butter do you like?  Do you have a jelly preference?  Which one do you spread on 1st?  Do you know that 96% of people put the peanut butter on first when making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
