My son loves those Smuckers Uncrustables PB&J's that they have in the freezer section of the grocery store. I rarely buy them because they cost so much, but I gave in the other day and bought a box. Since yesterday when I opened the box it is almost half gone. There were 10 in the box. My son ate 3 and my daughter had one. I have been thinking I should make my own and freeze them, but I am not sure how to get the bread to stick together. Any ideas? Do you or your kids like them?

Hi Lilybug. My daughter loves to bring these for school. The problem is, she always wants 2, well. That is a weeks worth and they are $10 a box. It would be cheaper for her to buy her lunch at school. We have a sandwich maker that may work it heats and seals the sandwiches....worth try maybe. Than again....if would be easier and cheaper, just to make a PBJ sandwich when they want it. I'll keep my ears open.

A box of 10 of them is a little under $6 at the Walmart I go to. Less than you pay I guess, but still pretty pricey. My son wants 2 all the time too.

I used to buy them for my kids, but haven't in a long time. Sam's club has a generic brand that is less expensive. But the last time I bought that we never finished the sandwiches and I threw them out for fear of them not being good anymore. I'm wondering though, if you make a regular pb&j sandwich, cut it into a circle, and use a fork to press the edges together and make the creases... he may not know the difference so long as you don't tell him. I'm not sure how well it would freeze though.

I made him some using some soft Bunny brand bread and they seemed to come out pretty good. I used a glass glass to cut them and they sealed themselves. I was going to try freezing them, but he ate them all before I could put any in the freezer.

At least it's probably cheaper that way. Even if you do have to make a couple everyday, lol.

You have touched on a secret I have been keeping. I see those Smuckers Uncrustables in Walmart all the time. And I want them! I don't have children, and I have no reason to get them. But I SO want to! I admit it, do you think I should get help? It goes back all the way to my childhood when I would ask my mom to take off the crusts of the bread she would use for my sandwich. And still today, I do not like crusts, even if they are the healthies part of the bread.

I admit sometimes a PB&J sounds really good and I am too lazy to make one, so I grab one out of the freezer.

Making your own sounds more economical. I have never had them. But I would just go and make myself a sandwich if I felt like pb&J. Kids of course are a different story. A friend of mine has one of those inexpensive sanwdich makers. I think that might help make the bread stick together. But it would be like a $25 investment.
