Smucker’s is a small-town Ohio company that started in 1897 and has grown into “the leading marketer and manufacturer of fruit spreads, peanut butter, shortening and oils, ice cream toppings, sweetened condensed milk and health and natural foods beverages in North America.”
Their Uncrustables sandwiches are a wholesome lunchtime or after-school snack option, providing the protein that kids need along with the great sandwich tastes that they love. Uncrustables are available in several varieties – including Grilled Cheese, Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly, Peanut Butter & Honey on Wheat Bread, Peanut Butter & Strawberry Jam, and Peanut Butter Sandwich. Each sandwich contains the filling, surrounded by bread that is cut into a round shape, minus the crusts with the edges sealed together to create a sandwich ‘pocket’. Uncrustables are frozen and then thawed or microwaved (in the case of the grilled cheese variety) before being eaten.
About My Family’s Obsession:
We have loved uncrustables since they first came out. My husband found them in the freezer section and wanted to try them out. It was almost like love at first site, but more like love at first bite. Ever since then we almost always have some in the freezer. Thank God that Costco sells them. Yes I really do thank God for small things like this. Please don’t think I’m a lazy mom that can’t throw peanut butter and jelly on some bread. I can, and do but these are so good and fast when we are on the go.
When I was pregnant and breastfeeding at the same time, I couldn’t get enough food in me. I was loosing weight and my doctor was pleading with me to stop breastfeeding. I said no, and tried to eat more food. Peanut butter and jelly came to my rescue. I ate about three a day with other meals too. I was eating them left and right. I just loved them, and they didn’t make me sick like dairy did at the time. My favorite flavor is grape and peanut butter, but my son Miles he loves the strawberry flavor the best. I think Zoe, likes peanut butter the best. 😉
We eat them as midnight snacks and I love to eat them as close to frozen as I can. I love to give them to the kids this way too because then there is less of a mess and it lasts longer because there is more chewing. Be careful though, you don’t want to crack a tooth.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Smucker’s Uncrustables and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.” But I’ve been eating them for a few years and the new version is just as good.
