People Are Intensely Divided About the Correct Way to Make a PB&J
Though it's deceptively easy to make -- hard to screw up a three-ingredient sandwich -- people have very strong opinions about how it is supposed to be constructed. Yes, it can absolutely be made in a variety of ways despite the dearth of ingredients. How do you know people feel strongly about the topic? One tweet triggered a long debate about the proper way to build the perfect PB&J.
What is the proper way to make a PB & J?— Lexie Ebensberger (@LexOnTheBeach26) June 23, 2018
RT for: bread then peanut butter, jelly on top on peanut butter then bread
Like for: bread then peanut butter, jelly on other piece of bread and place together
Trynna settle a discussion
Twitter user Lexie Ebensberger posed a question about how to build your PB&J. Should it go bread, peanut butter, jelly on top of peanut butter, and then the second slice of bread? Or should you construct it by spreading peanut butter on one slice and jelly on the other, then bringing the slices together?
There are strong feelings on both sides of the argument. However, the loudest voices seemed to object that there weren't more options available because it turns out there are a lot of ways to make a PB&J.
You have this all wrong. Peanut butter on both sides then jelly in the middle— Taran Theel (@ttheel9) June 25, 2018

I came here to say, bread, peanut butter, honey on the other side, and slice a banana in between.— Daddy Does Disney (@DaddyDoesDisney) June 25, 2018
Trick question: throw away the PB&j and find a better sandwich— Bri Couch (@brianna_couch00) June 25, 2018
Bread, mix pB&J thoroughly in bowl, spread liberally on both slices of bread🎤— William E. Duncan (@billyrduncanay) June 25, 2018
But does anyone put butter on theirs?? 😋 toast the bread. Add the butter. Put PB on both slices and jelly on both.— Emma Farison (@emma_farison) June 25, 2018
Hear me out. Don’t judge until you try it..but a toasted pp&j (pb one bread, jelly on other) and put a sliced dill pickle in it. (Dry off pickle with paper towel so toast doesn’t get soggy)— Danielle shepherd (@elleinadbibby) June 25, 2018
Of course, one rabble-rouser had to make everyone a little nervous about just how weird people can get.
These are trying times.
