Blondie and I have been on a bit of a pumpkin kick, but can you blame us? It's chilly. It's fall. 'Tis the season to be eating pumpkins and if pumpkin eating is on your to do list you may be interested to know that Peanut Butter and Company in the Village is featuring a special Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Butter Sandwich this week only...
Peanut Butter and Company has a special place in my heart. I used to come here all the time with Doc when we were impoverished NYU students. With our "buy one, get one free" coupons in hand we'd get two sandwiches for the price of one and split the price tag. While I don't get over to PB & Co as much as I did when I lived down in the village, I do drop by from time to time and this week I was excited to see that as part of their special fall menu they are offering Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Butter sandwiches. I love that combo, so it was the perfect excuse to drop by the old hangout with Blondie in tow.
We ordered one of the special sandwiches--Crunch Time crunchy peanut butter and Pumpkin Butter--on wheat bread and our sandwich was ready in no time. The bread was a lot softer than I remembered (in my mind the PB & co bread was kind of tough around the crust). This soft while still wheat-y wheat bread was quite good and definitely an improvement over the old stuff. The crunchy peanut butter paired nicely with the subtle spicy sweetness of the pumpkin butter. I wouldn't have minded a little more pumpkin butter on our sandwich, but overall it was quite an enjoyable experience.
Now at $7.00 a sandwich (includes carrots and chips), this special doesn't come cheap, so if you are an impoverished NYU student like I was might I suggest printing the Peanut Butter and Company coupon from Campus Clipper. It gets you a free jar of peanut butter when you buy any sandwich. That alone is a $5 to $6 value! And I know for a fact that Trader Joe's is stocking Pumpkin Butter again (just saw it on the shelves there the other night). So...go forth and enjoy the Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Butter Sandwich at PB & Co. through Sunday, October 26th and while you're there pick up a jar of peanut butter so you can enjoy making your own throughout the season!
