    POLL: How do you like your Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich?

    How do you like your peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Please see the following options:
    1. Type of Bread?
    2. Is there a specific brand of bread you insist on?
    3. Toasted or not toasted?
    4. With crust or without crust?
    5. Cut in half, diagonal, squares, or kept whole?
    6. Chunky or Creamy peanut butter?
    7. Is there a specific brand of peanut butter you insist on?
    8. Jelly, jam or preserves?
    9. Flavor of jelly?
    10. Is there a specific brand of jelly you insist on?
    11. Construction: peanut butter on one piece of bread and jelly on the other, peanut butter on both pieces of bread with jelly in the middle, or jelly on both pieces of bread with peanut butter in the middle?
    12. What is the proper PB to J ratio on the sandwich?
    13. Do you use one knife for the peanut butter and a different knife for the jelly, or do you use one knife for both?
    14. if you use one knife - do you dip it into the peanut butter first, or the jelly first?
    15. Immediately after spreading either the peanut butter or the jelly, do you lick the knife?
    16. If you lick the knife, do you lick the knife before you put it into the next jar, or do you only lick the knife at the end?
    17. After making your sandwich, do you put the knife back into the jar for an extra scoop for tasting?
    18. Do you keep the PB in the refrigerator or the pantry?
    19. Do you keep the jelly in the refrigerator or the pantry?
    20. Do you add anything additional to the sandwich besides PB&J (ex: raisins, honey, banana, whatever)

    I like it +ham +cheese -peanut butter -jelly


      Soft white bread, with crust, not toasted, sandwich cut in half for easy eating.
      Jif creamy, about 1/3 inch thick. Kept in pantry.
      Preserves, strawberry or raspberry, enough to be oozing out. Kept in fridge. Smuckers usually.
      One knife, rinsed after spreading either first, but licking at the end.


        I have despised peanut butter for my entire life.


        You're getting awfully personally here. I never discuss who or what I lick.

        Homemade white bread
        Jiff peanut butter on one side first
        Smucker's Grape jelly on top of the pb
        More jelly than pb so the pb doesn't stick inside my mouth
        Whole 'cause cutting just makes more places for the jelly to leak out
        Pb in pantry - jelly in refrigerator

        That's all ya get you pervert...

          I like it close to what I had growing up, except I don't buy soft white bread, and prefer organic multi-grain, or my own home baked:

          - Home-made bread or organic 21-grain bread (Dave's Killer Bread)
          - JIF or Peter Pan Chunky Peanut butter
          - Smucker's Grape Jelly (or my mom's homemade blackberry preserves)

            Love Dave’s Killer Bread!

          With honey instead of jelly.


            White bread mostly, Orowheat brand, sometimes thin cut rye.
            Jif smooth PB kept in pantry (wife likes chunky, but she’s weird). We used to like Peter Pan, but stopped eating for some reason - dunno if it is even still around.
            Knotts Berry Farm seedless boysenberry, strawberry or raspberry preserves, kept in frig.
            Perserves slathered first, lick knife, slather PB, lick knife.
            Sometimes toast the rye, never the white.
            Never cut up the sandwich.

            I have to admit back in my stoner days, We spread the fixings on Cigarette paper we used for making doobies ‘cause we ran out of bread and the munchies forced our hand. Ah, youth….

              AH, the munchies!!

            I like mine on wheat bread, toasted and buttered. Hold the "PB" and hold the "J".

              My tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth.
              all I can say is " hdkhdk hj d yrioewej, #!"


                Peanut butter only piled on a 1/4" thick usually on whole wheat.
                I do mine neat....no jelly....
                I lived on peanut butter for the best part of 40 years driving semi's because its easy to eat while your driving.
                Its glued together.
                Doesn't fall apart like other samages can.


                  Bread, Peanut Butter, and Jelly about any way or combination you make it!




                      I don’t eat the sandwiches being polled. I switched from jelly over to jam years ago.

                        Jam is superior.
