I was fortunate enough to have a Wednesday off last week and my mom and sister came up to Rhode Island to visit. It was probably the best 3 days I have had in a long time. It was full of fun and laughing until we cried (or at least I was hysterical haha). Knowing that they would be making the trip, I had my mind set on going to the The Chanler’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Pop-up.
Quick background… I LOVE peanut butter and jelly. I have had PB+J burgers, fried PB+J, PB+J ice cream. I can’t say no to one. They are nostalgic, delicious, and I can’t burn them.
Convincing my sister, who does NOT like jelly, was the hardest part but once we got passed that, it was smooth sailing. Most New Englander’s know that we have been plagued with rain for weeks. Luckily, it was beautiful outside the entire time they were here so we headed into Newport.
I took them to see the daffodils since they were still out in full force and then we headed to Loren Hope’s beautiful new shop (I’ll share pictures of that later!). We shopped and worked up an appetite. It was time for my favorite!
The second I read the menu online, I knew I was going to get The Heavyweight and that my mom would get Sweet Tooth. Thankfully we decided to give each other a bite so I could have a taste. My sister also got The Heavyweight and let me tell you, both were absolutely incredible. We could not believe how absolutely delicious they were. The flavors were all there and it was definitely not a simple PB+J sandwich. I won’t lie to you though, we ended up not doing a wine pairing because my mom and I wanted Bloody Mary’s and my sister chose a margarita.
We sat outside and enjoyed our sandwiches while watching the waves crash onto the shore. I could not have been happier than I was in that moment.
You all must go check out The Chanler’s peanut butter and jelly pop-up before it closes on May 20th. You might even see me there testing out the other flavors. haha Who wants to go?!
