Where Do Smucker's Uncrustables Crusts Go?

If you brought your lunch to school as a kid and were disappointed when you opened up your lunch box to find a pb&j sandwich without the crusts cut off, J.M. Smucker is here to save the day with their Uncrustable Sandwiches. With the classic combination of peanut butter and concord grape jelly sandwich to their peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwich, Uncrustables are sure to please any picky eater. If you're feeling like trying something a little different, try out Smucker's Chocolate Hazelnut Spread Uncrustable or the Peanut Butter and Honey Spread on Whole Wheat Bread. And for all you Plain Janes out there, go for the simple Smucker's Uncrustables Peanut Butter sandwich. I know I crave that one from time to time!

Uncrustable flavors have expanded over the years and it's easy to know why. Most kids, even some adults, aren't fans of the crust on sandwiches. Smucker's makes things easier by gifting us crust haters with their delicious sandwiches. And now you can enjoy a Smucker's Uncrustable without the worry of consuming high fructose corn syrup! They're also non-GMO.

Simply pick up a box from the frozen aisle at the grocery store, take out as many as you need and allow to thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Packing up the lunch box is a breeze!

So, how are these fluffy pillows of peanut butter and jelly made? It's pretty simple, and if you're up for the challenge, you could even make them at home. It all starts with the first piece of white bread or whole wheat bread. Next, a layer of filling is spread on top of the bread. Then, with the second piece of bread, the other layer of filling is spread onto that. Both pieces of bread are sandwiched together and crimped shut with the crusts removed. Pretty genius, right? Here's a homemade Uncrustables Sandwich recipe so you can make them at home. You could even replace the peanut butter with a nut-free butter if you or your child have an allergy.

And if you're wondering what happens to the poor crusts that get left behind, no need to worry! J.M. Smucker Company sends the crusts to companies that will transform the crusts into animal feed. However, if you're making them at home just save the crusts for someone who will appreciate them!


Next time you're craving a crustless sandwich or need a quick snack on-the-go, pick up a box or two of Smucker's Uncrustables.
