Some Kids Will Eat Anything: The Best (and Weirdest) Sandwiches of All Time

crazy sandwich ingredients
Oh, the sandwiches you can make with these ingredients.

Peanut Butter. Lettuce. And Mayonnaise.

Oh sure, you turn your nose up at it, but if you tried it, things would be different. The crunch of the lettuce, the tang of the mayo, the smoothness of the peanut butter. Wow, I’m instantly 8 again whenever I have that sandwich.

I don’t know who invented it, or how it came to be, but that combination is one of the most magical things in the world.

Maybe your kids have some weird favorites too. I know summer has just started, but back-to-school is around the corner, and if lunch time planning always gets you down, maybe now is the time to start mixing in some fun new sandwich ideas to put in rotation for the fall.

After the jump, I made some of the Internet’s oddest childhood sandwich combinations.

Here’s the dozen I tried to try. Honorable mentions go to peanut butter and spinach, peanut butter and mustard, peanut butter and bologna, and vanilla pudding with bananas and cheese.


  • Sugar Sandwich 1 of 12
    Sugar Sandwich
    It's like the whipped part of the sugar / butter blend when you're baking - on a sandwich. So good. So terrible. My babysitter used to make these for us when I was little. True story.
  • Peanut Butter and Bacon 2 of 12
    Peanut Butter and Bacon
    I had a maple bacon donut at a boutique shop last week. This is that. It sounds weird, but peanut butter is pretty salty on its own, so the bacon brings that out.
  • Peanut Butter and Tomato 3 of 12
    Peanut Butter and Tomato
    It's not that bad. You get the feeling that peanut butter makes everything okay.
  • Jam and Cheese 4 of 12
    Jam and Cheese
    Another childhood fave of mine. Sweet and creamy. Even better when it's been in your lunch bag all day and the cheese gets melty.
  • Cheese and Miracle Whip 5 of 12
    Cheese and Miracle Whip
    This is an offering from my wife. I had a bite to taste test it, she finished it off. The cheese and Miracle Whip just play off each other adding extra tanginess and creaminess.
  • Peanut Butter and Pickles 6 of 12
    Peanut Butter and Pickles
    This pregnancy craving staple stands up a man's tastebuds. It's tangy, crunchy, smooth, and sweet. I'd eat this.
  • Peanut Butter and Onion 7 of 12
    Peanut Butter and Onion
    I couldn't do it. I couldn't even slice the onion to make it. So wrong.
  • Creamed Corn and Peanut Butter 8 of 12
    Creamed Corn and Peanut Butter
    The smell made me gag. I hate creamed corn as a side dish. I took a bite and had to spit it out.. then the lingering taste made me take another bite. Sounds/smells disgusting, but is actually something I would eat, maybe.
  • Bologna, Mayo, and Cottage Cheese 9 of 12
    Bologna, Mayo, and Cottage Cheese
    The cottage cheese sounds funky, but it just adds a little texture, it's too bland to add any real taste. Not half bad.
  • PBLM 10 of 12
    PBLM
    Peanut Butter, lettuce, and mayonnaise. A classic. Creamy, crunchy, tangy goodness.
  • Banana and Miracle Whip 11 of 12
    Banana and Miracle Whip
    In your head there's no way on earth you'd make it, in your mouth it makes sense. If you think about it, bananas are tangy. so is Miracle Whip. It works.
  • Italian Bread and a Chocolate Bar 12 of 12
    Italian Bread and a Chocolate Bar
    It's as simple as taking a slice of italian bread and wrapping it around your favorite chocolate bar. Those Europeans spread Nutella on their toast, this is that.
