Peanut butter and pickle sandwich recipe goes viral. Is it actually good?
The combination of pickles and peanut butter has been floating around the internet as a new creation that sounds disgusting but tastes great.
People have been sharing their strong opinions on the controversial “peanut butter and pickle sandwich” after a recipe began making the rounds on Twitter. Many people have tried the combination and agreed that it really does taste good.
According to a Today report, to some people, the idea of pairing the much-loved nut butter spread with a pickled cucumber sounds absolutely divine. To others, it sounds positively horrific.
The recipe in question, first published by The New York Times in 2014, involves simply spreading peanut butter on both slices of bread before placing an overlapping row of pickles on one slice and consuming.
People really took to the acidic, vinegary taste of the pickles combined with the rich and subtly sweet and salty taste of peanut butter. They also really liked the crunch of the pickles with the smooth, creamy peanut butter.
Consider this less a recipe, more of a prod in a direction that you never considered https://t.co/29eYURffPO— The New York Times (@nytimes) April 6, 2018
Some contended the combo is a tangy, savory ambrosia of the gods stuck between two slices. Others condemned it as a scourge on humanity and the first of four fabled sandwiches of the Apocalypse. The opinions of the Interweb were cleaved in half.
But the sandwich’s doubters may just have been drowned out by its defenders. Turns out a lot of people grew up eating peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and loving them. So for the sake of this story, we should probably try one.
