I saw an add for this last night. Are we so busy as a Country that we don't have time to make a PB&J Sandwich. Check this out.

Can those be ordered online? It's too much work to drive to the store to buy them.

Yuck. I don't think I'd eat one of these. No doubt it would be soggy and nasty "by lunchtime" ...

i tell ya, it's no wonder we are an overweight and under-exercised society.

this stuff probably costs as much as a jar of pb, a jar of j and a loaf of bread combined!

I tasted a sample at Costco. It tastes fine, just like a PB&J (it was, uh, manufactured with grape jelly). I guess purchasing pre-made PB&J's can save you, what, 40 seconds?

Then and now, I can't think of a reason to purchase it. Well, portion control, I guess. But that's it.

I wonder, however, what I would've thought if I was around when they introduced pre-sliced bread? The odd thing is that I rarely buy pre-sliced bread, but still, I wonder.

I can live on PB&J sandwiches...

Maybe they should have PB&J sandwich vending machines. Heck, they have coffee vending machines.

Haven't seen these guys, but I'm more of a fan of Strawberry preserved/jelly than Grape.

Do they have different kind of jelly varieties?

Come on I love making PB&J, but it drives my wife mad..
I use two knives, one for the peanut butter and one for Jelly. And spread it on real thick.Posted Image Posted Image
When we were first married she mad me one and I thought she just gave me to pieces of bread. The PB was so thin you could see through it and the same witht he Jelly.
I asked "What's this!!"
Her reply "Oh that's we make them in my family, no wasting!!"
And I replied "Well your in my family now, and in my family we use a lot of peanut butter and jelly."

They should wrap them up in brown paper bags, so that you don't have to waste the time bagging it.
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...a super-callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

I think their point (besides the lazy time-saving factor) is the "no crusts" that kids demand at certain points in their lives. You can cut crusts off yourself, but the jelly may leak out. Uncrustables are sealed, for your protection!

It is a ridiculous product. Some of the fun of PB&J is determining the proper ratios. I like more PB than my wife does (it ain't called a J&PB), and she smashes her sandwiches flat, which disgusts me.
