Smashburger Offers PB&J Milkshake, Brings Back Memories of Paper Bag Lunches


When I think peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I think of paper bag lunches and my PB&J smashed beneath a soggy banana and a Ziploc bag filled with potato chips. However, no matter the state of my PB&J (courtesy of my dad’s culinary skills), it always tasted fantastic — with the perfect balance of chunky peanut butter and grape jelly.

Which, of course, makes Smashburger’s latest offering — a Peanut Butter & Jelly shake — a tasty, nostalgic treat. The new item is available at all locations nationwide now through September 30th. The hand-spun shake features Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream swirled with strawberry syrup and crushed Nutter Butter cookies for that “authentic peanut butter and jelly flavor.”

Ugh, Nutter Butter cookies in our milkshakes? Absolute genius.
