Peanut butter and jelly goes together like, well, peanut butter and jelly. There’s no more classic combination, and it’s estimated that the average American will have eaten more than 2,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate high school.
Well, call me a kid at heart, because it’s still a staple in my lunch rotation. And to celebrate National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day on April 2, we offer up this collection of creative and delicious variations on the classic. Why keep it only between two slices of bread when you can take your PB&J to a whole new level of awesome?
(Note: If you have a peanut allergy, any non-nut butter — such as sunflower seed butter — can be substituted accordingly.)
Anyone who has worked in an office knows that things can get a bit dull throughout the long week. There are only so many times you can make small talk about the weather and the latest news headlines. In other words, sometimes you have to spice things up – and abuse general office supplies – like these 40 people did.
Make it so they never have to leave their desk again.
Long gone are the days of a simple hot dog or bag of popcorn being the only concessions that money can buy at the ballpark. Sure, you can still get a hot dog topped with mustard and onions. But you can also get deep fried Oreos, an 8-pound burger, or a taco with a shell that’s made out of bacon.
These foods are anything but a walk in the park. Hungry yet?
Inside the Park Nachos
At Miller Park (home of the Milwaukee Brewers) these non-nachos are proclaimed as “nachos on a stick.” In reality, it’s a corn dog-like stick stuffed with taco beef and refried beans, rolled in Doritos, and then deep fried and drizzled with cheese and sour cream.
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that the parking lot is a paved hell. It should be simple. Park the car, get out of the car, and go about your business. But there are always a few people who go to the dark side and ruin it for everyone else.
While most of us just quietly simmer and move on with our day, there are those of us who will not stand aside while a parking crime is being committed. Instead, these select few get their revenge in the most creative of ways.
A word of caution: revenge is not always PG rated.
First there were cat cafes in which you could enjoy a brew and bagel surrounded by cats offered up for adoption. Then dog cafes scampered onto the scene built upon the same model.
But if you’re not looking to adopt and already have a four-legged friend in your family, you might be wondering what kind of pet-friendly restaurants are around that might even offer items specifically for your dog.
Well, wonder no more, as there are plenty of restaurants that cater to not only you, but also make sure your furry friend can share something with you while you’re there. A select few of these eateries put the doggy items right on the menu, but at most of these places you need to know what to ask for. It’s like a special club.
Keep in mind, of course, that just as you can be allergic to certain things, so can your dog. Always, check with a vet to make sure that your dog can handle a special treat.
On their “secret menu,” Starbucks has a Puppuccino. It’s an espresso-shot-sized paper cup full of whip cream. Some dogs are bothered by dairy, and your dog should probably not have one of these sugary treats every day, but for special occasions it’s fun.
If you think you have every appliance you could ever need in your kitchen, think again. Do you have a gadget that injects bananas with chocolate? No? How about a sushi bazooka? If you don’t, you might want one after reading about these 30 unique kitchen gadgets.
Yes, most of them are ridiculous (and completely unnecessary) but they’re still 100 percent fun!
In a display of creatively minimal skateboarding, The Berrics hit the icy sidewalks with their boards and nothing but their backs and some plywood for making ramps. As they say, “When all you have is a piece of plywood, sometimes you gotta take one for the crew and make the spot out of yourself.”
