Jones Soda Hops on Back-to-School Bandwagon with Peanut Butter & Jelly Soda


It was a sad day when I discovered Disneyland had discontinued its regaled peanut butter and jelly soda. Subtle, sweet, vaguely salty, it reminded me of playground days without the saccharine aftertaste of Kool-Aid. Thankfully, the fine fellows from Jones Soda have stepped in to fill the void.

PB&J soda has been done in the past, but the flavor is a brand new addition for Jones, who released  it just in time for the new school year. Currently available in Canada and coming to the U.S. in Harmons, Hastings, Associate Food, and Cost Plus World Market Stores by September, the peanut butter and grape jelly-flavored drink is also completely safe for people with peanut allergies. No real peanuts or peanut materials were harmed in the making of this pop.

Now, knowing this thing exists, you have a few options. You could A) ignore it B) reminisce sadly about your childhood or C) buy some, make yourself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and also pick up an ice cream version for yourself at Cold Stone. Sharing with your kids = completely optional.

Cold Stone Debuts Peanut Butter & Jelly Ice Cream and Build-Your-Own Ice Cream Sandwiches


Time to break out the fat pants, boys and girls. In honor (portent?) of the impending back to school season, Cold Stone Creamery has released a new ice cream and ice cream sandwich flavor that tastes just like recess. On a half day.

According to Brand Eating, the new PB&Just Delicious flavor features peanut butter, grape jelly, and graham cracker crust folded into peanut butter ice cream. For an extra dose of nostalgia, you could also turn the ice cream into an actual sandwich by stuffing it between two giant Nutter Butter cookies.

Alternatively, the ‘Stone has also just launched a new Build-Your-Own Ice Cream sandwich program, opening up the sammich possibilities far beyond your childhood lunchbox. Chocolate and peanut butter on chocolate chip, anyone?

The Almost Official Peanut Butter & Jelly Oreo

While Oreo brand has no official solution to those searching to cure a Peanut Butter & Jelly craving with one of their products, this creative alternative gets dangerously close. Utilizing half an Oreo Peanut Butter cookie and half an Oreo Strawberry cookies, the two have been conjoined to create: a Peanut Butter and Jelly Oreo. Maybe one day Nabisco will take note and gift their customers with a run of these, until then, this is the closest we’ll get!


Peanut Butter Jelly Bark

Imagine a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich represented in candy bark form. Can’t? Well, just look at the image above and that’s just what you’ll see. The bark is made from white chocolate chips, crushed potato chips, Craisins and Reese’s Pieces. All the ingredients are mixed in a bowl, then lathered onto a baking sheet, covered with melted white chocolate and frozen for a quarter of an hour. Easy enough? Oh Becky, you truly are making us FOODBEASTS moan!
