Did you know that today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly day?! You really should know, as it should've been marked on your calendar. You don't have a calendar, you say? Damn, get your life together.

So like we just said two seconds ago, it's National PB&J day, a time to celebrate one of the most iconic pairings in the history of the world. (Sorry, mac and cheese and bread and butter.) Is it a better pairing than peanut butter and chocolate? Discuss. But later.

Because right now we need to show you these 17 recipes you can create using the peanut butter and jelly combination. We hope you've already had lunch when you read this, or else you will start licking the screen out of hunger. And nobody wants to promote a screen-licker. Unless you're in the screen-licking business, in which case it might be time to change professions.
