What Jam Goes Best with Peanut Butter?

So, what jam goes best with peanut butter? Grape jam, obviously. You strawberry and blueberry truthers can argue all you want, but deep down you know grape is the answer. But if you’re looking for something different, try strawberry or blueberry or blackberry jam. They all go great with peanut butter!

Chunky or Smooth Peanut Butter?

It’s gotta be smooth. And this is coming from someone who is a long-time chunky peanut butter backer. There’s something about that white bread with smooth peanut butter and grape jam in the middle. The perfect thing to get me from lunch to dinner. Or the perfect thing to get me from dinner to bedtime. They also work for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Basically, I’ll have a peanut butter and grape jam sandwich anytime.

What Goes Well with Peanut Butter on Toast?

See, this is where I like to switch it up. I like just peanut butter on my toast. I also like just jam on my toast. But sometimes I’ll mix it up and go for peanut butter and grape jam on my toast in the mornings.

Breakfast time is also a good time to experiment with the strawberry preserves on toast. It’s undeniable that’s great stuff. I also like butter and grape jelly on toast in the morning. Give it a shot, you might be surprised!

Best Bread for Peanut Butter and Jam?

This is a tough one. I’ve had great luck with the classic white bread, but whole wheat can be good too. But that was only when my significant other was forcing it on me. If I have it my way I’m going for straight white Wonderbread. It’s as simple as that.

But if you’re looking for something a little different, try a baguette or ciabatta bread. They make for a great PB&J sandwich! Great chance to switch it up. Get that crunch going on your sandwich.

What Goes Great With a Peanut Butter and Grape Jam Sandwich?

For me, as an adult, these sandwiches have mostly been a standalone item. It’s just a snack for me and I never have it with a side unless I’m grabbing a handful of chips while on my way to the couch to watch the game and devour my sandwich.

As far as side dishes that go with a PB&J, I’ll have to take it back to school lunch growing up. A banana was a great option along with most other fruit options. Then there’s always the move of adding something crunchy such as saltines or pretzels. Those are a great combination with the classic American sandwich.

What Soup Goes Well With a Peanut Butter and Grape Jam Sandwich?

This is a great question. I never would have thought to pair a PB&J with soup, but it makes perfect sense! Tomato soup could go great with a PB&J sandwich. But you know what? Tomato soup with a grilled cheese is a much, much better option. If you do figure out what soup goes great with a PB&J then let me know. I’m not opposed to giving it a shot.

Peanut Butter and Grape Jam Sandwich for Dinner

Anyone who does this on a regular basis, you’re my people. You’re not above having breakfast for dinner. Life is all about taking chances and thinking outside of the box and you’re doing just that.

Conclusion

What is your favorite jam to pair with peanut butter? Do you prefer chunky or smooth peanut butter? What’s your favorite way to eat peanut butter and jelly toast? There’s no wrong answer! But odds are you’re probably very biased with your choice being the best.

Glad I did it that’s it just gonna do a quick one like I said Blimpie’s. Has anyone had it out there has anyone actually had Blimpie’s? If so where are these things? Where are they?

Why Did Blimpie Go Out of Business?

First of all, Blimpie did not go out of business. There are still active Blimpie Subs chains all over the United States. That said, they have declined greatly.

Blimpie was a franchise that specialized in submarine sandwiches. It was founded in 1964 and had its heyday in the 1980s and 1990s. However, the chain began to decline in the 2000s, and by 2017, there were only 85 locations left in operation. In 2018, Blimpie was acquired by Kahala Brands, and the company has since been trying to revitalize the brand.

There are several reasons for Blimpie’s decline. One is that they failed to keep up with changing trends. For example, in the early 2000s, there was a trend towards healthier eating, and Blimpie didn’t really embrace that. Another reason is that their franchise model was not very sustainable. In order to open a Blimpie franchise, you had to pay a hefty up-front fee, which deterred many people.

It’s also worth noting that the submarine sandwich market is very competitive. There are a lot of other chains that do similar things, and so it can be hard for Blimpie to stand out.

Despite all of this, Blimpie is still around, and there are people who remain loyal to the brand. Who knows, maybe with some changes, they can make a comeback.

What Kind of Oil and Vinegar Does Blimpie Use?

Blimpie uses a variety of oil and vinegar in their dressings, depending on the specific recipe. Some of the most common oils used include olive oil, canola oil, and vegetable oil. Vinegars that are used include white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and red wine vinegar.

Conclusion

In closing, the Blimpie Special Sub Dressing is a great way to add flavor to your sandwich. It’s a delicious blend of spices that will leave you wanting more. Give it a try next time you’re looking for something new to add to your sandwich. Thank you for reading!

Blimpie Subs – America’s Sub Shop

Blimpie Subs, remember those? Back in the day, they used to be in the local Go Mart gas stations where I grew up. It was in the middle of town, which made for the most convenient location.

Related Content: Blimpie Sub Prices

For many years, for me, they were out of sight, out of mind. Well, not anymore. They are alive and well in the DMV (DC-VA-MD, if ya don’t know now ya know) and I decided to go in and check out how America’s Sub Shop is holding up. I used to love Blimpie Subs and was excited to investigate.

What Happened to the Blimpie’s Subs Sandwich Franchise? Is Blimpie Subs Still in Business?

While they aren’t as much of a major player in the United States sub and sandwich market as they once were, they’re still out there. Kahala Restaurant Franchising acquired Blimpie in 2006. Then in 2011, Blimpie’s was purchased by MTI and they still have store locations across the country. While they aren’t quite up there with Subway, Jimmy John, Jersey Mike’s and the other top dogs, Blimpie’s Subs are still chugging along. While my local Blimpie is no longer in existence, it’s only because the Blimpie franchise owner in my town was unable to keep my local Blimpie going.

My Blimpie’s Sub Review

So when I saw a Blimpie’s Subs I had to investigate. On top of that, I also had to document the process. The Blimpie’s Sub I ran into was located in an Exxon in Sterling, VA, near DC. Don’t bother looking it up because it has since closed. It was in a very convenient location and didn’t have to veer off my route home. It’s kind of surprising to me this location has closed. It was cranking out sandwiches to customers, despite the subpar service.

Blimpie subs sterling va

On my trip, I was going with the Blimpie Best Panini and getting it the Blimpie Way. I wanted this to be as Blimpie as possible. What is the Blimpie Best, Blimpie Way, you ask?

What is on a Blimpie Best Sandwich? What’s the Blimpie Way?

“Slow-cured ham, salami, capicola, prosciutinni, provolone made the Blimpie® Way with tomatoes, lettuce, onion, vinegar, oil and oregano.”

Sounds a lot like Mike’s Way, if you ask me. That said, it was AWESOME. The service sucked, they didn’t get my order completely correct, but I’m not sure if it was the actual panini or the nostalgia I was tasting, but either way, it was awesome. The meat was sliced fresh. America’s Sub Shop did not let me down!

Check out my Blimpie’s experience:

How Many Blimplies Are There?

There are 156 active Blimpie locations currently in operation. That’s according to good old Wikipedia, so if it’s incorrect go take it up with them.

Conclusion – I miss My Local Blimpie

As I stated earlier, maybe it was the nostalgia talking, but it turns out I am still a big fan of Blimpie Subs. In a strange way, it kind of reminded me of those fundraiser subs that I buy every single time I get an opportunity. I won’t make any claim it has the freshest meats or the best bread, but when you put it all together, it just works for me. America’s Sub Shop hooked me my buddy and I up with a couple of good sandwiches for a fair price.

The only problem for me is finding one of these sandwich shops in operation. A quick trip to Google tells me that it will be a nearly four-hour drive for me to score more Blimpie’s. In the meantime, I’ll be hoping more Blimpie restaurants pop up in my area. A man can dream, right?
