The 9 way ultimate PBJ (PBJHMN) sandwich
Peanut butter and jelly is really not something I mess with. I might try a new flavored jam. Or I might mix it up with crunchy versus smooth. I may even cut a mass set of sandwiches into different shapes or use the peanut butter and jelly combination in a different dish (like for PBJ cupcakes).
I don’t really stray from just peanut butter and jelly together, though. You won’t see me adding bananas. And while honey works well with peanut butter, that’s an entirely different combo entirely….and it won’t be put on my bread and eaten as if it’s an alternative to PB&J.
I do find the above a bit interesting, but I don’t have much interest in eating it….especially since it seems to me like some of the sections have way too much spread (I’d cut that Nutella layer in half!).
Having a different taste for every bite is a cool idea….9 different combinations possible!
Jam + chunky peanut butter
Jam + Nutella
Jam + smooth peanut butter
Honey + chunky peanut butter
Honey + Nutella
Honey + smooth peanut butter
Marshmallow spread + chunky peanut butter
Marshmallow spread + Nutella
Marshmallow spread + smooth peanut butter
It’s the grey area that has me curious (disgusted?) though. What happens when you can’t get all of a particular combination into a single bite and the rest start mixing together?
What does chunky peanut butter, Nutella, honey, and jam end up tasting like? Or honey, marshmallow spread, and chunky peanut butter?
Maybe it’s amazing! Or maybe it’s an overload of sweet condiments that are better served in desserts than on bread.
Rubik’s Cube Fruit Salads
The above video is one of the better Rubik’s cube fruit salads I have seen. I guess they’re technically not salads, but kind of, right? It’s the only one I have seen with a “dark” fruit like the blue you would expect on a Rubik’s cube, too, so that’s kind of nice, even though the shape is a little off.
Here are some other variations, too:
This one isn’t diverse in color at all, but I think it’s one of my favorites actually. I was turned on to pairing fruits and cheese a couple years ago and was surprised to really enjoy the combinations, so to see watermelon and cheese together makes me drool just slightly. I think it’s more festive than anything, too, so a nice, refreshing treat for Christmas especially.
