Peanut Butter Jelly Time Beer is Real, Does Not Come with a Baseball Bat


Twelve years after the dancing banana first graced the internet with its presence, the letters “p-e-a” still autocomplete on Youtube with “-nut butter jelly time.” So if you think about it, now’s a good a time as any to release a beer inspired by one of the most nefariously catchy memes ever. Best of all, those 10 year olds who watched the original video are finally old enough to drink.

Aged with raspberries and roasted peanuts, the Peanut Butter Jelly brown ale from Catawba Brewing Co. is meant to recreate the “childhood goodness” of mom-packed school lunches, perfect for your weekly existential crisis/nostalgia binge. Sadly the brew is only available in cans around the Carolinas (Catawba is based in North Carolina), or on tap at Catawba’s tap rooms in Asheville or Morganton, so everyone not from those parts will just have to stick to Disneyland for their liquid PB&J fix.

Cheers to growing up!

Deep Fried PB&J Shot Cupcakes, For Playground Boozin’

I’ll tell you this much, if I’d tried to play a game of four-square after eating one of these things, I definitely would have been seeing stars. Luckily, I’m a grown-up now and I can leave the playground games to the professionals or at the very least, I’ll have something else on which to blame my terrible aim.

From the same instructables user who brought us edible glass chips, I’m pleased to present to you: Deep Fried PB&J Shot Cupcakes.

Featuring a deep-fried, jelly-filled vanilla cupcake and creamy peanut butter frosting — all topped with a very real, very full shot glass of Van Gogh PB&J vodka — this boozed-up blast from the past is probably best consumed in small doses and only after you’ve finished cooking everything. But what am I, your mom? Didn’t think so.

It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time! Peanut Butter Jelly with a baseball bat!
