Is your family a Peanut Butter & Jelly family? We are a little more jelly than peanut butter. We actually waited a while to introduce peanut butter to our son due to family allergies with peanut. It was just this past year that we finally introduced him to it and he was okay with it, but he really LOVES jelly.
I am pretty particular about the jelly we use because I want to be sure it’s not all sugar and high fructose corn syrup. I really love the strawberry jelly the best, but my husband loves grape! This week we were able to try out Welch’s Strawberry spread & Grape jelly on our Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches.
Did you know that the strawberry is made with sweet, vine ripe strawberries? All of the produce is also grown in the US and Canada, plus the spreads are all natural!
I knew we would love it because we have used Welch’s many times in the past. My son is a big fan of banana on his sandwiches, so I thought what better way to celebrate the upcoming National PB&J Day on April 2nd with a Strawberry Banana Peanut Butter & Jelly! Sounds delicious, right? It is!
We came home from a busy day and these made the perfect lunch. Also, this is an easy one that the kids can help out with too. Of course, my son prefers to be the taste tester. That’s his favorite part…mine too. If only someone would make my food for me?! Hmm.
In celebration of National PB&J Day, Welch’s has a Facebook Contest running where you can win $500 and a ONE YEAR supply of Grape Jelly! Plus, in addition 50 people will win a sandwich keeper! Head on over to Welch’s to find out more details and enter to win!
I love to hear some other ideas of how you make your PB&J creative? Let us know! Do you have certain ways to get your picky eaters to eat them? Remember my Picky Eater Confession? Well, he is like that with PB&J too, some days it’s a win and some it’s not! Now, Welch’s Jelly…it’s always a win, the peanut butter? It’s hit and miss on that!
Now, go enjoy a #PB&JYourWay!
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
