I Just Discovered The Entire World Is Genuinely Surprised And Confused About Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwiches

The slander!

Americans do some things the rest of the world doesn't understand.

ABC

Yes, we eat cold pizza.

ok but do americans really eat cold pizza

Yes, Halloween is a big deal.

Do Americans really care about Halloween or is that a tv show/twitter thing

And yeah, sometimes my mom calls it "Tar-jay" because she thinks she's being edgy or funny or something.

Do Americans really call Target like tar-jay because oh my god

But there's one food in particular that baffles everyone in the world.

ABC

I'm talking about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

It confuses the hell out of people.

Americans can you just tell us? I JUST WANNA KNOW WTF IS PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY?! @terry4prez https://t.co/0zMa7BKXRG

If you didn't know, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a full-fledged American thing.

Wait Americans actually eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches??? I thought it was a joke or just done in movies what

It's literally American culture.

there’s a british girl in my therapy group and apparently only americans eat peanut butter & jelly’s???? shocked

Like, you know when people say the expression "as American as apple pie"? You could say the same for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

do americans actually believe that a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is a worldwide thing?

Some people around the world are disgusted by them.

peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are proof all americans have brain worms

Other people have seen the light.

first time having pb&j. americans you did one thing right

But mostly, people are just surprised and intrigued that Americans actually eat them.

americans really eat peanut butter and jelly in a sandwich

They don't get it!

Any Americans who follow me, why peanut butter and jelly? Why add jam to peanut butter?? Why is it so popular?

Part of the confusion could be due to the use of the word "jelly" to describe "jam."

you americans are absolute weirdos eating PEANUT BUTTER AND JAM (jelly) together 💀

In the UK, "jelly" is like American "jello." For them, "jelly" is only referred to as "jam."

you’re telling me non americans have never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich what the fuck why did i not know this what the fuck

So some British people think Americans put jello on sandwiches.

ABC

No, we don't put jello on sandwiches!! That's crazy!!

ABC

As a full-fledged lover of PB&J, I have to disagree with the sandwich slander.

You Americans and your peanut butter jelly what the f is that about

Yes, it's an acceptable meal.

Americans? You mean the people who think a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an acceptable thing to eat for a meal?

Yes, it's normal.

Also, is it really normal to have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch? Americans are wild.

Yes, it's a hit!

Serious question guys.... is peanut butter and jelly (basically jam) sandwich actually a hit or are Americans deceiving us? The combination just sounds like it will give you a bad stomach ache. 😫

Now, excuse me while I go make myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because THEY ARE DELICIOUS.

Just tried peanut butter and jelly and it was top notch, Americans know what’s up tbh
