The Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich has been an American classic since the early 1900’s. It fed our U.S. soldiers during WWII and has become a household staple across America. Did you know that the average American will eat 1500 PB&Js before they turn 18?
Thanks to John Harvey Kellogg, AKA the cereal king, he was the first person to patent the process for making peanut butter. Along with Otto Frederick Rohwedder’s technology of sliced bread has led to Americans eating enough peanut butter in a year to make more than 10 billion peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
As much of a classic as this sandwich is, I have never finished a PB&J sandwich! Trust me I try one every year but have yet to finish one. However I know I am probably the minority as sandwich eaters everywhere enjoy a good Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.
Want to avoid a soggy PB&J sandwich? Put a layer of peanut butter on both slices of bread and then put the jelly.
When I came up with the idea of this shirt I wanted a classic and clean look for this design so I had to ask the very talented Alex “Friks84” Lopez to help design it. I have been a fan of his work for a long time and had been waiting to working with him. I love his clean lines and his custom illustrations. He did a heck of a job showcasing what I had envisioned. Check his work out at Friks84.com and follow him on Instagram @Friks84
Let me pack a PB&J for you just like how your parents used to, so you can keep enjoying that peanut butter and jelly time all the time!
