For some strange reason, I have again become very fond of the now famous Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. While it's easy for me to admit I've always
really enjoyed them, as I'm sure many of you do, I find it kind of funny that being almost 30 years old I would much rather make a couple PB&J
sandwiches instead of opening up a can of Ravioli's and putting them in the microwave for a few minutes.
Anyway, being bored out of mind and stuck in front of the computer yet again - I decided to take a look into who invented the PB&J sandwich and to my
suprise, I discovered the following:
The history of Peanut Butter and Jelly
A Brief History of PB and J sandwich..Food historians have seen nothing written about the peanut butter and jelly sandwich before 1940. What we do
know is that GI's in WW 2 were given rations of both peanut butter and jelly. When they returned to the states after the war peanut butter sales and
jelly sales both soared.It would seem most likely this would be the birth of the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Here is some more links to the
different Elements of the PB and J sandwich.
Like the idea of theSandwich ....The Bread .... Peanut Butter... Jelly
From the Food History Timeline
Who invented this popular sandwich, why & when? The when is easy to document, the why is a relatively simple matter of technology, economics &
commerce. The who? Is still a mystery.
I find it hard to believe that nobody was making PB&J sandwiches until after World War II.. what a strange world we live in.
