Everyone knows that peanut butter’s lifelong partner is jelly. There are times when the popular nut butter cozies up to bananas and sometimes even bacon, but that’s where a lot of folks draw the line. So on Friday when the “New York Times” tweeted a recipe that was originally published in 2012 for peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, it causes some social media outrage.
“Consider this less of a recipe, more of a prod in a direction that you never considered,” the tweet reads. And plenty of Twitter users thought the Times was nuts over this. “Please put this behind a paywall,” one responded and another tweeted, “Some people just want to watch the world burn.”
But then there were those who thought the combo was “no big dill.” Someone tweeted that she’s “Been eating PB & J sandwiches with a pickle for years,” and says they’re delicious. And another user took things one step further with her suggestion, “What about peanut butter and olives. Also good.” But we’re just going to take her word on that one.
