Supposedly the Peanut Butter and Banana idea came from the all time famous star, Elvis Presley. The 'Peanut Butter and Nanner' what they considered it. Whether that may be true or not, I got to say, the man had great taste. Peanut Butter and Banana themselves are great. Both have a creamy texture, and are just delicious in general. Putting both Peanut Butter and Banana together; Well, it just equals to a great combination!
I grew up eating this with my Grandpa and Nana when ever I went over to they're house. They're the grandparents. They want to spoil you. Give you all the things that you couldn't get because your parents said so. Like, getting the snacks you mother never let you have like oreos or goldfishes, or getting the expensive toy that you parents said you didn't need, or going to Chunk E' Cheese from time to time, or staying up late watching movies, or going outside to play; At which my grandparents did. I was extremely spoiled as a child by my grandparents; To be honest, I still am.
But, even now, I still always look forward to having a Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich for lunch with my Nana. The warm melted peanut butter with the warm, creamy bananas is something I can never get tired of. Its a comfort sandwich. One of the best.
