  • About

The peanut butter and jelly bar is, of course, a nod to the most famous of lunch-box sandwiches. It is a playful take (playful without being silly) on an iconic American flavor pairing. If you are a PB and J fan, I urge you to give these a try. They have been a staple of the Baked menu since opening day, and are among our most popular snack items. The heaps of peanut butter and mounds of jelly are sandwiched between a sweet crust and chunky crumble. It’s a bit of a picnic dessert. Or the perfect lunch substitute.
