Creamy or crunchy, peanut butter is a delicious treat. Americans love it so much that we eat an estimated 3 pounds of the sticky spread every year. We’ve even designated November as National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. Everyone knows about the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich so this November, celebrate by trying out a new peanut butter dish. These Orlando restaurants offer new and exciting ways to enjoy peanut butter.
Peanut Butter Hamburger at The Cowfish
Located in Universal Orlando’s City, The Cowfish offer a novel way to enjoy peanut butter. You’ve probably tried some of the more popular peanut butter pairings, such as grape jelly, bananas, and chocolate, but have you ever thought of putting peanut butter on a hamburger? Listed on the menu as The Cowfish Has Officially Left the Building/The Hunka Hunka, this beef burger is topped with creamy peanut butter, fried bananas, Applewood bacon, and served on a brioche bun. The combination may sound strange, but trust us: it will perfectly satisfy your sweet and salty cravings.
Peanut butter also makes an appearance on the kids menu at Cowfish. While kids may not be too keen to combine peanuts and beef, they can enjoy a whimsical take on the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Served in a bento box, the peanut butter and jelly sushi is a fish-free, sticky sweet treat rolled up in bite-size pinwheels.
Strawberry Peanut Butter Ice Cream at Universal Orlando Resort™
If you like your peanut butter with a few stirs of magic, we recommend trying the strawberry and peanut butter ice cream at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Orlando Resort™. This refreshing, creamy treat has the right ratio of salty and sweet to make you forget entirely about Butterbeer. Ask for the strawberry and peanut butter ice cream in Hogsmede™ at Three Broomsticks™ and in Diagon Alley™ at Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour. If you like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, we recommend enjoying it in a waffle cone.
PB&J Wings at Gator’s Dockside
If you are looking for another savory way to enjoy peanut butter, Gator’s Dockside has just the thing for you. This Florida-based restaurant chain serves ribs, seafood, and even alligator in a relaxed, family atmosphere. All of them are delicious, but you’ll want to opt for the peanut butter and jelly wings. This special sauce has a subtle nutty flavor and is slathered over wings for that perfect sweet and salty flavor you love. Visit them in at 5142 Dr. Phillips Blvd.
Peanut Butter Milkshake at 50’s Prime Time Café
Cool off with a peanut butter milkshake at the 50’s Prime Time café in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This retro-themed café takes you back to the era of black and white TV and home-style cooking. The restaurant is decorated like a 1950s home and you can watch TV at the table as you wait for your food. Sip your peanut butter and jelly milkshake at the formica kitchen table and bask in the nostalgia. To take your experience to the next level, ask your waiter to add chocolate to your peanut butter milkshake.
Elvis Sandwich at Pom Pom’s Teahouse
Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria is a local café known for its Asian-American fusion food, gourmet sandwiches, and tea. Peanut butter lovers have a couple choices here. The first is the Colossal PBJ, a pressed sandwich with generous amounts of peanut butter, strawberry jelly, marshmallow fluff, and banana.
The other option is the Spicy Elvis, a grown up twist on this American classic. This pressed sandwich features banana, bacon, strawberry jelly, and cayenne peanut butter. If you like all things spicy, this one’s for you.
Peanut Butter Latte at Artisan’s Table
For those who don’t know, a fluffernutter is an early 20th century sandwich made of peanut butter and marshmallow crème on white bread. The clever baristas at Artisan’s Table decided to take this popular flavor combination and blend it with another favorite food – coffee. While peanut butter and coffee may not seem like the best combination, trust us on this one. The creamy, nutty peanut butter and the sweet fluffy marshmallow crème make this latte a must-try.
