when you make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which do you put on first, the PB or the jelly?

discuss!

yep, I'm bored

  Peanut butter first. You refrigerate jelly but not peanut butter. You do the peanut butter first and when you do the jelly you get a little peanut butter in it. If you did the jelly first, you'd get a little jelly in the peanut butter jar, putting something that's supposed to be refrigerated into a container that won't be refrigerated. Seems like a bad idea.

This is pretty much my strategy to a tee.

  Not particular about brands, but I always go with extra crunchy.

If you knew anything about anything ;D you'd know you have to switch to a spoon when scooping the jelly.  Jelly wasn't meant to be picked up with a knife, it's too slippery.

The real reason why you do the PB first is because you can spread jelly on top of your peanut butter, while you can't spread peanut butter through/on top of jelly.

PB first, so I can get the right amount without having an insane dry mouth feeling.  And to save silverware, I usually just wash off and wipe the peanut butter knife and proceed with jelly.  Striking your knife through a newly opened jar of peanut butter feels good, man.

  I generally tip the jelly jar sideways and kind of pull the jelly out with the knife.

A slight tangent, but on Friday I was driving and yearning for a snack.  I stopped at a convenience store and perused through the candy and chips aisles.  I came across and then purchased an 8-pack of Keebler peanut butter crackers -- satisfying and well within my acceptable nutrition standards (actually, a very healthy choice for me).

Once back in the car, I absent-mindedly peeled back the wrapper and popped the crunchy goodness in my mouth.  It tasted odd.  I chewed and continued to be puzzled by the strangely sweet flavor of which I was unaccustomed.  After a few moments of concern and worry as to whether I had ingested a tainted PB cracker, I looked at the wrapper.  I had inadvertently purchased PB&J crackers!  As a firmly anti-jelly person, I felt annoyed and duped.  The taste remained in my mouth for an uncomforatble length of time as my hunger remained unsatiated.

Tough world.
