More About Peanut Butter Than You Ever Wanted To Know...

Jonah's sign says "KMN"- or Kill Me Now
For my speech class I worked with a partner to present a speech on Peanut Butter & Jelly. It was an informative speech and we had to have 2 quotes from sources, a "What's In It For Me" attention getter, audience analysis, and ethos. We found plenty of statistics and polled our audience about their tastes in peanut butter. I went on CDKitchen and found a list of 40 varieties of peanut butter sandwiches.

We found out that:
  • A child will eat approximately 1,500 PB & J sandwiches before graduation
  • 60% of people prefer creamy to crunchy
  • Women & Children prefer creamy, Men prefer crunchy
  • East Coast prefers creamy, West Coast prefers crunchy

Crunchy & Creamy peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese, nutella,
marshmallow cream, banana, kiwi, bacon, and cheap white bread.

I assembled the ingredients for The Peanut Gallery to try several of the sandwiches on the list of variations. They weren't very enthused about participating but we did it before dinner Sunday so they were hungry.

The Real Thing- this is the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The Club uses 3 slices of bread
Fluffernutter- Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Crème
Pooh Butter- Peanut Butter and Honey
Peanut Butter & Nutella
Spitwad Sandwich- Peanut Butter and Marshmallows
The Elvis- Peanut Butter, Bacon, Banana, and Honey
Mean Green- Toasted Bread, Peanut Butter, Cream Cheese, Banana, and Kiwi Fruit
The Ultimate- Peanut Butter, Orange Marmalade, Marshmallow Cream, Shredded Cheddar Cheese

The Elvis and Peanut Butter & Nutella

Ryan and my dad were the only ones willing to try The Elvis. Tovah and Isaac really liked the PB & Nutella, but not with bananas on it. Arin was willing to try a spoonful of the marshmallow cream but not on a sandwich. No one wanted cream cheese or kiwi (that was fine with me, I bought the cream cheese for cheesecake and didn't want to run to the store to replace it).

Legal Disclaimer: No children were harmed in the testing phase of this project. They were remunerated for their participation by getting to eat BLT's for dinner after the testing was complete.
