PB & J Bar

August 12, 2016 in Category: What's New

It is estimated that the average American will eat 2,984 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in their lifetime (give or take a few hundred). The number 2,984 may seem monotonously mountainous, but it must be a dynamic duo if people are willing to do it again and again (repeat again 2,982 times).

We thought we would shake things up a bit, as we always do, and in the best way since peanut butter and jelly! How, you ask? With the Trader Joe’s PB & J Bars, of course.

Trader Joe’s PB & J Bars are prepared with a lot of care, as most things containing peanut butter and jelly generally are (thanks to mom and dad for all those heartfelt, school-lunch sandwiches). The “crusts”—made with oats, peanut butter, rice flour, and peanut flour—sandwich a sweet, strawberry fruit filling reminiscent of jelly. Each nostalgically flavorful bite is soft, chewy, and sticky—but not too sticky to scare off archibutyrophobics (people with a fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of their mouth).

Trader Joe’s PB & J Bars are just delightful to eat. Furthering the pleasing experience is a profile that boasts low sodium (55 milligrams), no cholesterol, and eight grams of whole grains per bar. Plus, they are certified gluten free and kosher (dairy).

We’re confident that kids of all ages will adore PB & J Bars, though we’re not quite ready to estimate how many will be consumed in a lifetime. It’s got to be a lot—especially at $2.69 for each 7.4 ounce box of six-1.2 ounce Trader Joe’s PB & J Bars. Grab a Bar on the go, as a snack, or dip one in your Peanut Butter and Jelly with Nonfat Greek Yogurt for breakfast.
