Hello everyone... I am a volunteer BzzAgent and get products/coupons to try and give my opinions about. I tell other's about the product and let them know how I like/disliked them. They in turn tell me if they've tried the product and whether they like it or not. Word-of-mouth is a very powerful form of advertising. Anyway, I recently received a plastic case to hold one Smucker's Uncrustable sandwich. I can't wait to purchase a package of them so CJ can take them to school when he has cold lunch. You mom's and dad's out there, let me know if your kid's eat them, what you think about them, and if they like eating them.

One out of my three children love the Smucker's uncrustables. My daughter doesn't care for sandwiches much unless its from Subway. My third child said he thought they were nasty. I buy them occasional for my one son who does like them when they go on sale.

That's good to know that at least on of your kids likes it them. I know what you mean about buying them when they're on sale; I think for us at least, the best place to buy them is at Walmart...The only thing is you have to buy a multiple pack of them. There's suppose to be a 4-pack of them around but I haven't seen them; haven't really looked much as of yet.

It really amazies me what these companies will do to get our money. There is no way I would pay extra money for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that has the crust cut off. You can make your own by using a cookie cutter to seal the edges. The same with the grilled cheeze sandwichs. With the prices of groceries This will not be on my grocery list.

I understand exactly what you're talking about. I haven't bought these as of yet and don't know if I will. The food industry is amazing, the way they come up with these new things...Alot of which are for people who don't want to be bothered in making something "homemade" or what-have-you...whether it's because they're to busy because of having to work to make ends meet (both parents) or because they just don't want to (lazy)...I'd rather make things at home when at all possible.

The thing it isn't really new just the same old peanut butter sandwich with the crust removed and the edges pinched together. Just an old idea with new packaging. How long can it take to make a peanut butter jelly sandwich. Most kids can do it by the time they are 3. Speaking of which I wonder how a 2-pound box of chocolates can make me gain 5 lbs ... ?

My son loves those things, but they cost too much for me to be buying them all of the time. I do get them for him once in awhile though. They have grilled cheese ones now too. He has not tried them yet.

I know what you mean about them being too expensive. I will only be able to get them once in awhile also. But he does love them and they have them at school once in awhile as well.

Sometimes, when I worked at the school, they served them on a sack lunch day, like for a field trip. I have never tried the cheese ones, only the pb&j. Most of the kids liked them. A little special needs guy I worked with had a hard time at first, it bothered and confused him.

I didn't even know that they had cheese one's...I can understand completely about it confusing some kids, as they don't look anything like the real thing. Thanks for your opinion.

I am a member there also and they used to send me free things to try out. I have not got anything from them in a very long time. they stopped sending me invites for some reason unless their mail is being blocked.

My daughter loves sandwiches. And she often asks for ones without crust. PB&J is one of her favorites. Though she hasn't tried these yet. I'd bet she'd enjoy them. May have to put them on my shopping list.

Clint will only eat PB&J's. On occasion I'll make him take a bite or two of different sandwiches but he's so picky, and with his Autism I try not to press the issue too much right now. She will dearly love them.
