Peanut Butter & Co. Sandwich Shop Fluffernutter Sandwich

In honor of National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day, I felt it was appropriate to celebrate in the form of peanut butter. This is one holiday I certainly do not mind spending! (Not that I really mind any holidays for that matter, but this one in particular is worth celebrating! =) )

So, I ordered the Fluffernutter sandwich, which came with carrot sticks and a bag of chips. Yes, I realize it’s National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day, but Fluff is equally as delicious, and in all fairness, it still was a peanut butter sandwich =)

Here’s a pic of what I got (minus the chips that I saved for later)

Can you honestly tell me that doesn't look delicious? Mmm.

Although it may not seem it, the sandwich is actually rather large. I got my Fluffernutter on wheat bread, which was soft and just perfect. The peanut butter went excellent with the fluff, I got that “stuck-on-the-roof-of-my-mouth” feeling from the peanut butter, and the soft marshmallow fluff brought some sweetness to compliment the peanut butter.

On the menu listed on the website it says “Remember this recipe? Peanut Butter on one side, and gobs of Marshmallow Fluff spread on the other. It’s heaven”. I could not agree more. There really was peanut butter and fluff oozing out of the sandwich, which I had no problem using my crust to wipe up and eat.

The only slight disappointment of the meal was the carrot sticks. Not that they weren’t tasty, because they did taste quite fresh and delicious, but there wasn’t enough! Only three!? I would have much preferred a heftier side of carrots to compliment my sandwich.

Regardless, 4 1/2 stars. One of the best Fluffernutter sandwiches I ever ate.

Did you/ are you celebrating National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day? Please let me know! =)

Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Mac & Cheese

Dinner time rolled around the other night, and I only had one thing on my mind. Mac. &. Cheese. What better a time to try out something new for me that I bought at Trader Joe’s? The Reduced Guilt Mac & Cheese. Not only does it look awesome on the box, it was completely awesome in general. For instance, here’s how this delicious-ness came out of the microwave….

Hah. I find that extra blob of cheese quite amusing.

It even smelled good. So cheesy!

Although I was slightly disappointed at the fact there wasn’t a larger portion of mac & cheese, there was a decent amount. I rounded off the meal with some veggies (any guesses? Yea, it was broccoli…), and ate.

At first bite, I was impressed. It certainly was cheesy, but had that clumpy, “baked macaroni & cheese” flavor and consistency, with crispy edges on the outside of the carton. The noodles were chewy and slightly firm, but still quite tender. It also tasted surprisingly salty. There was 540 mg of sodium in this entree, which I don’t think is that high, but it in fact, did taste pretty salty!

Overall, 4 1/2 stars. Why not 5 stars? Well, it was relatively low in fiber, only 1 star, and wasn’t made with whole grain noodles, which I prefer over regular wheat. But still very tasty, and I would certainly get it again!

What’s your favorite brand of macaroni & cheese? This may certainly be one of my new favorites!
