The Test, Vol. 2: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich ft. Peanut Butter & Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful

Earlier this week, Crunchy For Me reviewed Peanut Butter & Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful.  In that review, I discussed how the white chocolate flavor was a welcome new twist on the old peanut butter and chocolate combination. Let’s see how Peanut Butter & Co.’s peanut butter measures up in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Perfectly spread, hitting every corner.

As you noticed above, I stuck with the same bread and preserves I used in my previous peanut butter and jelly sandwich review.  You’ll also notice my impeccable spreading skills. Don’t be jealous, just practice more.

The finished product.

My original review of Peanut Butter & Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful noted that this peanut butter isn’t overly sweet. Instead, there is a nice balance of sweet and savory.

With that being said, this peanut butter and jelly sandwich tasted more like a dessert than a lunch.  I could taste the white chocolate more than I could in the peanut butter cookies I reviewed yesterday. That taste, paired with the red raspberry preserves, made for a sweeter-than-normal peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

However, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially if your like me and have a pretty big sweet tooth. The sandwich fills you up just as any peanut butter and jelly sandwich would, so it’s not as if you’re eating ice cream or cake. (Not that I’m against ice cream or cake lunches. It was acceptable in my house to have leftover birthday cake for breakfast. And not just stuff like carrot cake, where you could make an argument that the carrots, raisins, and cream cheese gave the cake some breakfast-suitable ingredients. I’m talking straight chocolate frosting and funfetti cake. Love my parents!)

If you’re worried about the sandwich being too sweet, I suggest pairing it with some salty chips. My go-to meal is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, barbecue Lay’s potato chips, and a glass of milk. (I swear I’m not five.) Here, I would swap out the barbecue Lay’s for something more savory, like some nacho cheese or cool ranch Doritos. This would give your meal a nice sweet-and-salty balance.
