peanut butter and pickle sandwich

I always ask for extra pickles on hamburgers and sandwiches, I suppose I just love the crunchy, vinegary tasting experience of the pickles.  But when I was in high school and I heard my friend proclaim that peanut butter and pickle sandwiches were soooooooooooo good, I was appalled that anyone would think to even put the two together.

Over the years I thought about that peanut butter and pickle sandwich my friend mentioned but never got the nerve to actually try - until now.

I started to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich but when I went to the fridge for the strawberry jam, I noticed a lonely dill pickle lingering in a huge jar in the corner of the fridge.  I decided I'd finally make that peanut butter and pickle sandwich I had thought about every now and then for over 15 years.

So I slathered on some peanut butter and sliced up a dill pickle...

...and put the two together.

I made my sandwich all pretty,

and took one bite...

...and declared it THE MOST DISGUSTING sandwich I've ever eaten!!!

Who creates this stuff and says it's good enough to eat, and not only that, says it's soooooooooooo good?!  Probably the same people that dip fries in chocolate frosties and say it's delicious - I don't get it.  There's nothing spectacular there.

The ONLY thing that saved this sandwich from being chucked into the trash was the bread.  I used Dave's Killer Bread (Good Seed) - the best bread I've ever had.  The bread is so delicious that I made myself eat the entire sandwich, seriously, the bread is THAT good.  There was no way I was going to let that bread go to waste.

So I'm here to tell you that peanut butter and pickle sandwiches are a no go.

Don't be fooled like I was people, do not make this sandwich.  EVER.
