Call us narrow-minded (you wouldn’t be the first) but our peanut butter experiments came to a halt around the 2nd grade, when we discovered Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. “You got chocolate in my peanut butter!”
Others kept right on trucking. Peanut butter and pickles. Peanut butter and mayonnaise. What is it about peanut butter? People combine it with anything and claim it’s delicious.
For proof, check out P.B. Loco, a line of extreme peanut butter combos from three Minnesota ex-lawyers who never met a peanut-butter-and-anything sandwich they didn’t like.
A few of their flavors, available online at PBLoco.com: peanut butter, chocolate and banana; peanut butter and Asian curry; peanut butter and sun-dried tomato.
Or, if that’s not exotic enough, you can visit one of two P.B. Loco cafes, in Arizona’s Scottsdale Fashion Square and the Fox River Mall in Wisconsin. There the menu includes the Latte Da (cafe mocha peanut butter, pretzels and marshmallows), the Wacko (curry spice peanut butter, pickles, coconut and potato chips) and the Monkey’s Uncle (chocolate-banana peanut butter, Mandarin oranges and granola).
Sandwich combos are $4.95 or $5.50. If you want to design your own sandwich, that’s $4.50. You can choose one of the P.B. Loco flavors and mix it up with all sorts of extras: cucumbers, pineapple, raisins, etc.
If this sort of menu appeals to you, P.B. Loco invites franchise inquiries.
We have a menu suggestion: peanut butter and Maalox.
