There are some things from your childhood you grow out of. When you get enough practice, you take the training wheels off the bike. You remove the tee when you’re ready, and start hitting baseballs out of the park. But, there are some things that are too good to let go.
Peanut butter is a staple of being a kid. From the classic peanut butter and jelly, to ants on a log. A jar of creamy or crunchy was always on hand. To this day if I see the word peanut butter on a menu it gets my attention, and usually makes its way to my table. Take a look at these sweet traditional, and unconventional peanut butter offerings...
The Shewman Special is a combination of creamy peanut butter, sautéed fresh jalapeño slices, melted cheddar cheese, and thick-cut bacon on a signature ground chuck patty. This burger is truly one-of-a-kind, and must be experienced to be understood. You can even get it on a gluten-free bun.

The peanut butter chocolate chunk "Phat Cookie" is two amazing cookies sandwiched with peanut butter buttercream frosting. I would say grab one next time you're in, but you're going to want a second after you try it for yourself.
