Pinterest Fail: Grilled PB&J

While searching through Pinterest, I always wonder if it really is as great as they make it seem. What if everything went as great as it seemed? Wouldn't life be boring? Well my friends, life was not boring the day I tried what you would think would be the best Pinterest "project" ever.

I kept seeing "Grilled PB&J" on Pinterest and decided to try it one day. But let's back it up a bit...

I really was not a peanut butter person before arriving in Aberdeen. Seriously, I would eat it MAYBE once a year. Maybe that was because I was worried I would run into my Peanut-Free nephew at some point and not be able to give him smooches all over ... (let's forget the fact that we lived 6 hours apart) ... I didn't think there was much to rave about peanut butter. I'd say that within 3 days of stepping foot in Great Britain, I wanted Peanut Butter... bad. It was weird.
Um, hopefully you stopped the video because it's 10 hours long, but it is NOT AT ALL annoying :)
So, my main lunch time item everyday is a sandwich, and I usually either grill that sandwich, stick it in the oven or toast the bread. With a PB&J, I always toast the bread. And it's not a proper PB&J without... um... four times more PB than J. You should always put four six times more PB than J. Aren't you proud hubby?
By the way, that source includes an article about how PB&J sandwiches are racist. Say whaaaaaa???
And by the way, this PB&J has too much J.
Anyway, Pinterest said to grill that baby for a super yummy sandwich. Do not grill a PB&J.
1.) Peanut Butter everywhere. I'm talkin', down my arm... gooing all over the plate... sliding down my chin. This resulted in me scooping peanut butter up with a spoon my finger, and I may or may not have licked the plate.
2.) The bread tasted like "grill". Not a fan of the grill taste when it comes to my PB&J.
Okay, maybe I put too much Peanut Butter on the sandwich. Wait. No, I did not. That's crazy talk! Anyway, it was not at all worth the time it took to "grill" America's favorite sandwich.

Moral of the story is peanut butter melts, so stick with the good ole toaster.

What Pinterest Fails have you encountered?

Jam is always made from the whole or cut fruits, cooked to a pulp with sugar, producing a thick, fruity, spread. Jelly is made using only the juice of the fruit and sugar. It should be clear and sparkling when finished. Source



  1. Hey girl! haha. This is too funny. I'm obsessed with pb&j so I'd prob try this too. Could you add our button or link for the link-up? If I missed it, sorry! Thank you :)

    1. Hi Katie, soooo sorry! I've never done a link up before (new to this blogging stuff still), so I forgot :( I think I added the link up, but I'm not sure if it will work. Thanks for reminding me to add it!

  2. What's a sandwich? Is it like a sammich? And PB&J is the best sammich ever!! And thanks for the little video, my roomate in college, Chad, used to sing it all the time and just like in the video. Bahaha!

  3. LOL awww well it looks de-lish!! I mean....melty peanut butter?! Yes please! Grill way!! Just toast it next time and call it a day lol. Oh well-you win some, you lose some! And now I want a pb&j lol.

    Thank you for linking up with us!!

    1. Glad I found your page! I'm going to have to start being more creative with Pinterest just so I can link up more! :-)

  4. This cracks me up! I would have probably tried it too. I've tried a crock pot orange chicken recipe I found on Pinterest and it was disgusting. Not every pin is perfect, I guess?

    1. This weekend I was talking with someone about grilling sandwiches, and they had mentioned to not grill a PB&J. I wish I would have had that conversation sooner!
      I will steer clear of the Crock Pot Orange Chicken... thanks for the heads up, Britt! :-)
