    It started during the 2006-2007 season when Kevin Garnett of the Celtics ate a couple of PB&J's before a game.
    He had a great game so from then on he demanded that there be 2 PB&J's there for him before every game. It didn't take long for it to spread to his Celtics teammates and then to the rest of the league. It's become so much of a cult thing that now players and coaches will go to battle if their PB&J's aren't in the locker room or even on the team plane:

    What's your PB&J preference? Mine is:

    White bread
    Jif Creamy
    Smucker's Strawberry Preserves

    Once in a while I will mash up a banana and mix it with the peanut butter with a couple of drops of honey but not often. Sometimes I will toast the bread and sometimes I won't.

    Honey roasted chunky peanut butter and there is nothing else. Everything else is trying to be baby shit. Any exception would be goober grape, which never really needs bread. Jelly is jelly. If you are screwing up fruit and sugar, you're really just screwing up.

    Skippy Natural Super Chunky peanut butter with either mayhaw or blackberry homemade jelly. And of course put a couple layers of doritos either nacho cheese or cool ranch in between there too.

    I really don't see how anybody can eat that organic stuff. It's so thick you can't even spread it with a knife.

    never had any issue with that at all always spreads just fine and it tastes way better than the overprocessed stuff to me. Maybe you need that "whipped" style peanut butter they got now if you can't handle the real stuff ha!
