I'll rate your peanut butter sandwich.

I love peanut butter sandwhiches, and am always looking for a new way to add an interesting twist. Peanut butter and jelly, the most popular combination, is definatly not my favorite. Since preschool I've discovered Peanut-butter and banana, peanut-butter and honey, and in fact just peanut butter to be much better. I've recently tried grilled peanut butter and jelly (yummy), peanut butter and cinnamon sugar (yummy yummy) and peanut butter and orange marmelade (yucky). I want more. I want to explore the depths of what else goes with peanut butter. Something sweet? Something savory?
Post your favorite unique peanut butter sandwhich and I'll try it if I can. I probably can, I plan on buying some new food I havn't tried that I heard goes with peanut butter anyways soon, like nutella and marshmallow fluff, and I have a wide variety of food in my kitchen. I'll most likely (unless I'm really hungry) make just a quarter of a sandwhich. Then I'll post back and rate it on taste from 1-10. 10 meaning this is amazing and I feel like I've discovered peanut butter for the first time. 1 meaning you have bad karma for making me try this. Now post what ya got!
Oh, and please state if I should use creamy or crunchy or crunchy Adam's natural.

Something Mom fixed us as kids:
(in this order)
bread
peanut butter (creamy)
iceburg lettuce
miracle whip (not too much of either spread, btw)
bread

I kid you not - it's quite savory.
This site is that of a company I first found (and loved) for their hot pepper jelly. A few years later they branched out into the peanut butter market, calling it "peanut better". 2 faves are the cinnamon peanut better and the Spicy Thai Ginger Peanut Better.

I haven't admitted this one to anyone for years but i used to really like fresh bread with peanut butter and a small amount of finely chopped onion just enough to add flavour. My brother has eaten peanut butter with plum jam for years.

Ok, I'm about to take a bite of your sandwhich, right now. Unfourtunatly, I had to use romain lettuce instead of iceburg. I hope it doesn't make to much of a difference. And I'm using sliced french bread, BTW.

Hmm. I'm going to have to give this sandwich a 5. Although I really like the crunchy texture that the lettuce adds, I don't think that miracle whip and peanut butter are a good match. I wouldn't call it a bad or disgusting taste, just not that appealing to me.

When I first tried it I used too much onion and it made me cry and I almost gave you a one. Then I came back and realized you said "really small amout" so I tried it again with just a little and found that I like that spicy kick it gave it. Definatly a... new flavor. 6/10

^ Oh, and I would try your bother's favorite with plum jam, and it sounds good too, but I don't have any plum jam. In fact I didn't know such a thing existed.

Glad you liked it!! My mum used to make tonnes of plum jam, I don't know if she can buy it in the shops but I'm sure you can. My brother never ate meat as a child so ALL of his meals were mixed with peanut butter as it was the only thing he liked. He would eat mashed potato, peas and peanut butter mixed together! (I used to look on in horror)

BTW jkath, that stuff "peanut better" looks absolutly fasinating. I'd love to try it, but there isn't one located anywhere near me! There's only one location in my state appearently and its miles away darn it! Looks great though. I'd especially love to try the sweet selections. All five of those look like heaven.

His only source of protein was peanut butter? Good gosh! I was a vegetarian as a child (for about a year after watching the movie babe) but I ate a lot of eggs. Peanut butter and peas... what a combo...

My Das used to love Peanut butter, mayonaise, and cheese. My brothers went for peanut butter and bologne or peanut butter and just mayonaise. A favorite of my mom's was peanut butter and butter on toast for breakfast. I was not very adventurous and only added some bananas once in a while although I admit the peanut butter and butter is not bad.
