Quite possibly the most iconic American sandwich out there, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich is the stalwart companion of paper bag school lunches, hospital cafeterias and hiking trips. It’s that friendly sandwich, always filling and never offensive, that you sometimes forget about but can always turn to. Let’s give the humble PB&J a little love, we say. It’s also more popular than you might think. (Fun fact: by the time they finish high school, the average American student will have consumed 1,500 PB&J sandwiches.) It all started during the Great Depression in the 1920s, when peanut butter was a cheap source of protein and the invention of sliced bread made it easy for kids to make their own sandwiches. During World War II, American soldiers added grape jelly to the mix, popularizing it back home. For some, the thought of paying for a PB&J would be sacrilege, but if you’re feeling irreverent and hungry, Toast Monster in Haebangchon serves up a variety of sandwiches on toast, including the classic PB&J with grape jelly, served hot and gooey just the way we liked it as kids.
