Vegan MoFo Day#18-Peanut Butter and Jam with Smarties-a Childhood Favourite

2nd favourite sammich.
peanut butter and jam with smarties sammich.
a sweet sammich to counteract the savory-ness of the last post.

or in this case,"whizzers",the vegan version of smarties,which,if yr from the states probably think smarties are those nasty little chalky candies,but in canada,they're basically m&ms.but better.except for that i take that back,because peanut m&ms were the best.but smarties,yes.
as a child,one one my favourite variations on pb&j was adding smarties.a girl at school showed me.probably the same one who ate plain marshmallows for snack at recess.which i would still think is gross and weird,i mean who eats marshmallows?except now i'm vegan and 'can't' have normal marshmallows,so i eat marshmallows plain all the time and love it.besides,no kids in kindergarten are eating toasted coconut marshmallows.
anyways,it's a great sammich.use candy lentils pr whatever vegan smarties/m&ms you have-the best part is the crunch from the candy shell and the chocolate and jam mixing.oooh.

I like those chalkie things. They were one of the only vegan candies available to me. Hater! :)

That sandwich sounds good. I love different textures. And any time there is crunch in a sandwich, I love it. I usually throw chips in them.

that´s awesome! though I really can´t decide, if I´d favor the savory or the sweet- both look divine!

Yea, I'm with Mo. My favorite crunch in a peanut butter sammich is Fritos. Now you know!
