Krema Blings Up Your PB&J!

I've recently been told that the Krema Nut Company has started to provide lunch menus and it's all about gourmet peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I can't miss this opportunity and had to try it out myself, after all, I am a nut lover.

The menu for the sandwiches ranging from traditional to unexpected. And when I was there I was so excited that I went a little PB&J-too-happy and ordered too much. The price ranges from $3 - $4 per sandwich (and the sandwich is pretty big), the deal is pretty good. And if you don't like their combination, you can even create your own! The ones that I tried today is the PB-Nana and PB Apple Cheesecake, and it was very good blinged up version of PB&J.

The PB-Nana has Krema's own roasted crunchy peanut butter top with sliced banana and honey. The chunky peanut butter gave a crunch and extra toasty flavor, and the banana and honey gave a little sweetness to the sandwich. The result was great! The chunky peanut butter also didn't stick to the teeth that much so you can truly enjoy the sandwich one big bite after another. The PB Apple Cheesecake gave a completely different taste surprise. The sandwich taste like apply pie + cheesecake. The smooth peanut butter actually worked with the cheesecake spread very well and did not overpower the sandwich combination. However, the smooth peanut butter did stick to the teeth a little bit, so I would suggest people with dentures be more careful. Another interesting thing about Krema is that there's only two seating in the entire place, which forces you to pick up your sandwich and get your lunch picnic style.

The overall experience of Krema was good, and their sandwiches rank 3 out of 5 on my yummy scale. Since summer is getting closer and warm weather is here to stay, it is a perfect time to try out these gourmet sandwiches!

Veni, vidi, yummy: a gang of us went on Tuesday. I had the spicy peanut butter, but with Nutella instead of the raspberry preserves--it was like a Jeni's Queen City Cayenne sandwich. The spicy butter takes a little while to creep up on you, but once it does, wow!

Another got the Fluffernutter equivalent--also delicious! The third, appropriate to his age, tried the old-fashioned, and reported it delicious (and had to save half for dinner). And the fourth got cashew butter with strawberry preserves, and said it was delicious. I think that'll be my next selection.
