Stupid PB&J Question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I can't believe I'm asking this, but I really don't know.

Do pre-made PB&Js have to be refrigerated? I know not for kids' lunches, but what about for up to 24 hours? You keep jelly in the fridge.

I want to take some on a trip but already have too much stuff to put in the smaller cooler we want to take.

I'd say you're safe. I never died from eating one that sat in my lunchbox all day. At least it's not mayo.

You don't have to refrigerate it Even jelly's okay without being in the fridge...I've eaten it with no problems!

The only jelly you should have to worry about not refrigerating is a jelly without a preservative. The all natural jellies have to be kept cold in order to stay safe. PBJ's are a favorite among hikers and backpackers

Thanks! What a dumb question, huh!

I just didn't want to keep them cold if I didn't have to.

I haven't had one in years and years, and all of a sudden yesterday I got a craving, bought the stuff and have had 3 in 2 days. Weird, and no, I'm definately not pregnant. Then I thought they'd be good to take on my trip, and yay, they are!

:icecream: :baloon:

I just love the smilies here!

Are you bringing cold drinks and such? As long as it isn't carbonated, I freeze the drinks and pack the sandwiches near them. Kinda tough to do in a backpack, though not impossible, depends on how squished you like your sandwiches . . .

Use honey instead. When I have to fly somewhere I take saltines, bottled water, and a PB&H sandwich in my purse. Maybe a banana.

"When things are bad and getting worse,
Keep a cookie in your purse."

That was a message in a card I once sent a friend, and I think it's good.

Ever tried UNCRUSTABLES? They are made by smuckers and kept in the freezer section. Anyway, you take them out 8-10 hours prior to eating. They are soooo good.

Roxy, I'm trying to feed young boys who probably won't go for the honey. I love PB & H's myself!

Uncrustables? I'll have to look for them! Thanks.
