Here we go with another Taste Testing Tuesday! Did you ever think about all the things you can do with peanut butter? It can be used to make cookies, cakes, pies, pizza, chili and it’s paired with all sorts of veggies and fruits, oatmeal, drinks, candy…the list goes on and on! For today’s taste test, we’re just going to put some peanut butter on some small pieces of bread and see what we can think of to put on top of it. Are you ready? Let’s go!
First, cut some bread into small pieces or use some crackers like Ritz crackers. I made 9 little pieces of bread for 1 person’s taste test.
Spread some peanut butter on each piece of bread.
I will share with you the 9 foods that we paired with our peanut butter but feel free to come up with your own combinations.
#1.) Strawberry Jam.
#3.) A slice of banana
#4.) Miniature Chocolate Chips
#5.) Apple Butter
#6.) Miniature Marshmallow
#8.) Chocolate Syrup (The kind that goes on ice cream.)
#9.) Caramel Topping (Also the kind that goes on ice cream.)
Make the same taste test for each person that wants to participate. Let the tasting begin! They all look so yummy!!
For some added fun, make a chart so you can record what each person thinks of each type of peanut butter bread. Here’s what my chart looks like:
I put the names of the participants down the left hand side of the chart and filled in the spaces across the top with the names of each item I added to the peanut butter and bread pieces. As you taste each kind of sample, draw a smiley face in the corresponding square on the chart to show what you thought of that sample. A face that is smiling means, “YUM!”. A straight face means “It was ok.”. And a frowning face means, “No, thanks!”.
If you have room on your paper, you can add another column titled “Favorite” and each person can write in which sample they liked the best.
And now you know what your family likes with peanut butter! 🙂 I wonder if there were any samples that everyone liked? Or one that everyone didn’t care for? Whatever the results are, I hope you all enjoyed our Taste Testing Tuesday! 🙂
