  • and sadly, people will pay for that.

      Pay Sure, I pay when I go to the Giant to buy PB & Nutella. I’m wondering what the markup will be on this?

      • It also prevents you from having a whole bottle of nutella at home to go HAM on… I’d actually like a place where I could get a toasted Strawberry Jam and chunky peanut butter sandwich for lunch… Pretty original concept for these parts…

      • Pretty sure they are mostly targeting tourists visiting the zoo looking for a quick bite rather than DC residents that could easily prepare the same thing at much lower cost at home. Pretty sure this will be lucrative for them.

      The advantage of buying a Nutella sandwich instead of making your own is that you’re not stuck with a jar of Nutella (which emits some magical force that causes people to eat the entire jar all at once).

      • Yeah, I was thinking the same thing — that’s the only good justification I can think of. Unless the PB and Nutella is on “artisanal” bread or something.

      • especially if you have some pretzel rods nearby.
        That nutella will last about 5 minutes.

      Ever been a retail establishment before? People buy water too! Or tea. Or coffee.

    Maybe someone should start a peanut butter sandwich food truck.

    • They have one, but like the infamous pink spotted Unicorn that shoots lasers from it’s horn, it’s hard to find. :(

        Actually they had one. It only lasted a few months because no one was willing to pay over $5 for a PB&J. They used different nut butters and tried to be creative but it failed.

  • I give it a week before the neighborhood association files a protest that the shop attracts the “wrong element;” (i.e., people).

    I die every time I pass a frozenyo and see the .29¢ water sign. If I give them a penny, I expect 3 bottles of water plus change. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

    OMG. I used to make those when I lived abroad in Egypt (there’s enough of an expat presence that you can find both). My friends thought it sounded revolting, but it was like a little slice of home and heaven. The only reason I didn’t gain weight that summer was because I sweated profusely more or less all the time and because I got sick and lost my appetite for a week.

    Peanut Butter and Nutella has been my go-to for years now. Put that shit in waffle batter and watch your breakfast go from acceptable to MONEY.

    Any peanut butter and bacon sandwich lovers out there? Maybe we can get them to expand their menu!

  • It’s basically like a Reese’s Cup in between bread. I used to just take a spoon and dip it in both and eat when I wanted a sweet snack. Then I stopped keeping Nutella in the house because it’s hard to resist.

    Nutella is disgusting. There, I said it. I know I’m in the minority, but that sh*t’s nasty.

      Homemade’s definitely better.

        I still don’t understand why people buy products from corporations when its so easy to diy


  • Meh, unless they’re selling cereal, I’m not interested.

    My husband has been making PB & Nutella sandwiches since college, and long ago dubbed them ‘candy sammiches.’
