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:



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.


The history of Peanut Butter and Jelly

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.

Is "Jelly" in the US the same as "Jam" that we have in England ?

If so what is the best flavour to use in a peanut butter jelly sandwich ?

Oh and do you still use normal butter or margarine on the bread ?

Thanks for any replies, I'd like to give it a try

I like my peanut butter jelly sandwiches with chunky peanut butter microwaved slightly in the microwave. Warm melty peanut butter is pretty damn orgasmic for the mouth.

Good enough for me!
This kid did invent peanut butter and jelly(jam) sandwiches.
His years of testing made him the way he is today.

In America Jelly is normally cheaper quality a lot of the time or thinner it seems. Jam is not quite as thick as preservatives. Jello is the hot water,sugar,gelatin treat. I like my Pb and J sandwiches on toasted bread. When I was growing up my mother was my sole parent and didn't make a lot of money and I remember the toasted bread making it taste better. Gourmet poverty if you will. I prefer Blueberry preservatives but Grape is what is commonly used over here.

You're not saying that if I continue to eat them I'll turn out to be like him are you? Cuz honestly that's kind of scary and depressing to me.

Ah yes the toasted bread is very nice - I also discovered that using whipped cream and / or using actual strawberries (instead of the jelly / jam) is almost magical.
