I am a snob.
A peanut butter and jelly snob, that is.
This was told to me by a friend a few years back as we were shopping for PB&J fixings. He reached out for wheat bread, I wagged my finger and said, "No." White bread was what was called for.
He grabbed some Jif, and I put it back. Creamy Skippy, no questions asked.
He didn't even bother getting jelly, but let me peruse the shelf until I found Smucker's Seedless Strawberry Jam. It's how I roll.
And then he told me I was a PB&J snob. I just nodded and smiled. Because I knew it to be true.
So when it was time to make Joy the Baker's peanut butter and jam milkshake and I read the ingredients that said 'natural peanut butter' I shook my head no. Which might be odd, seeing as almost everything else I eat is under the 'natural' category. Ok, so maybe I have given up the white bread. And maybe I used soy ice cream and coconut milk in this shake instead of the dairy stuff. But don't mess with my Skippy. There are some things I don't think I will ever change.
Because I am a peanut butter snob like that...
This is actually two shakes in one. The peanut butter shake (ice cream + milk + peanut butter + a teeny bit of vanilla extract) is layered with the jam shake (ice cream + milk + a bit of jam + fresh fruit blended in). When they are brought together they make the perfect milk shake combo.
