A while back I heard a statistic on the news that 70% of people, when making a PB&J sandwich, put the PB on first.  I was just wondering how true-to-life that is.

So - when making a PB&J sandwich - what do you put on first....the PB or the J?

I'm a little strange..lol.  Things have to be done a certain way, so I put the PB on, and then the jelly.

I've always been a jelly-first kind of gal.  That way I can put the jelly on and lay that piece of bread down - then peanut-butter the other slice and lay it on top....PB seems to slip off less than jelly does.

I like jam better then jelly, it spreads so much easier and no chunks. But yea I do the peanut butter first. But I don't eat it alot, I am more of a peanutbutter and banana sandwhich kinda gal. That's what I am eating now, lol.

I consider myself somewhat of a PB&J expert since it was the only thing I would eat from about age 5 to age 10.  I always put the jelly on first.  Then you wipe the knife off on the other "clean" slice of bread and dig into the peanut butter.  That way you do not get peanut butter in your jelly jar or jelly in your peanut butter jar!

Voila!

lol,I understand your thinking,I put my PB on first and use the clean slice to wipe off the PB before I get the jam.
