I've been a peanut butter and jelly sandwich eater for as long as I can remember, and even now, at 35-years-old, I still eat them for lunch almost every day. They make a wonderful snack too when I need to grab a tasty treat on the run. Although my love of the PB&J sandwich hasn't changed, what I use to make one definitely has.
When I was younger, I used white bread and whatever peanut butter and jelly was on sale to make my sandwich. But as I've gotten older, I realize that the the food I eat and what I put in my body actually matters. That's why I'm glad that Welch's has released a brand new natural spread.

Now that I'm all grown up and still a connoisseur of the PB&J sandwich, I use whole wheat bread and all natural peanut butter to make my daily treat. Unfortunately, I just couldn't seem to find a natural alternative for the jelly I used. Most were loaded with sugars, high fructose corn syrup and other artificial colors and flavors. Thankfully, Welch's came to my rescue with their brand new line of Natural Spreads.
The Welch's Natural Spreads come in three yummy flavors (Concord Grape, Strawberry and Raspberry) and most importantly, are all natural! Look at what the Welch's Natural Spreads have in store for you:
- All natural
- No high fructose corn syrup
- No artificial flavors or colors
- No preservatives
- 100% North American grown
The taste is phenomenal too! I've been using the concord grape flavor on my PB&J sandwiches and love it. I'm thrilled that I now have a completely healthy peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I've also used the strawberry Welch's Natural Spread on my morning toast and enjoy that variety too! If you're sick and tired of the artificial colors, flavors and preservatives in your food, then by all means, give the new Natural Spreads from Welch's a try!
