Would You Try a Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheeseburger?

This sounds like something your five-year-old would suggest for dinner:  The fast-food chain Culver’s is testing a new bacon cheeseburger that comes with PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY on it.

It’s called the “PBB&J Pub Burger” …short for “Peanut Butter, Bacon, and Jelly.”

(Culver’s has locations in 26 states, mostly in the Midwest.)

It’s a single patty with cheese and two strips of bacon on a pretzel bun.  Then there’s a healthy layer of peanut butter under the patty, and what looks like a big glob of grape jelly.

Someone spotted it on the menu at a location in Wisconsin, where Culver’s headquarters are.  It’s not clear if they’re planning to roll it out to other stores.

Sonic had a “Bacon Jam Cheeseburger” in 2021 with a “savory bacon onion jam.”  So we’ve seen jelly on burgers before, but they usually go fancy with it.  This looks more like a spoonful of Smucker’s.  And Sonic’s did NOT have peanut butter.

Whether it’s good or not, we don’t know.  But some people think it’s overpriced either way.  The burger alone is $8.39.
