What do you put on your PB&J sandwich?

WWL Saints Sideline Reporter Steve Geller told me that this was a raging debate among the media at Saints camp this week.  Grape of strawberry jelly?

So, I asked our listeners to join the discussion during the Early Edition of WWL First News.

I also shared my wife's secret to keeping the peanut butter from sticking to the roof of your mouth.  If you mix the peanut butter and jelly in a cup before spreading it on the bread, it creates a smoother filling.

The discussion on the air started with the same question, grape of strawberry jelly?

It quickly expanded to include creamy or crunchy and much more.

For some people grape or strawberry are not at the top of the list.

Check out the messages people texted us at 870870 from 5:00am to 6:00am for what goes on their PB&J (or similar sandwich)...
