"This sounds a bit odd but, trust me, it is wonderful! You can use other types of pickles if you wish. I've heard of people who use Kosher dills. Personally, I find the sweet-tart flavor of sweet gerkins blend beautifully with the peanut butter. This recipe can easily be multiplied."

"I just tried this sandwich for the first time, love it! We tried Shoppers Food Warehouse plain white bread, Skippy natural creamy peanut butter and both Clausen Kosher dill slices and someones bread and butter pickles, I can't remember whose. I'm looking for a pickle right in the middle, b&b was too subtle, dill a smidge too strong. What's right in the middle anybody? Fantastic sandwich!"
"I think I posted this same recipe but I called for pickle chips. I like sweet pickles. The bread and butter types, I think, are the best. This is one of my favorite sandwiches but the pickles are important. If you get an inferior pickle then it's just no good."
"Love love love this sandwich! Yes, it seems weird, but there is something about the sweetness and crunch of the pickle, combined with the creaminess of the peanut butter that makes it just awesome. I prefer creamy peanut butter, and I only used one slice of bread, which I toast. In the future I plan to experiment with different types of peanut butters and pickles - dill sounds like it would be interesting."
"I love this sandwich, but it has to be dill for me! Its the most amazing thing, and I'm not just saying that because I'm pregnant...lol."
"Love love love peanut butter and pickle, and yes, everyone I know thinks I'm weird. Except I like mine with Vlasic Kosher dills, not sweet pickles. With a big glass of chocolate milk... best thing in the world!"
"So nice to know that I'm not REALLY a freak ... the two things that are ALWAYS in my kitchen are peanut butter and dill pickles, and I've been eating this sandwich since I was in the second grade ... at least 40 years now! Thanks for making me feel a little less strange :)"
"Just made this for lunch and it was a first time for me also. Never would have thought to put the two together. I used whole wheat, chunky p.b. and Clausson kosher dill spears. I will definitely keep this in my lunch rotation. Thanks for opening my eyes to a new and unique sandwich for me."
"I too, have been eating these since I was a youngster (47 now). To make it 5 stars, you have to try it with mayonnaise (Miracle Whip is legal too)! C'mon, you're already eating something 99% of the rest of the world probably wont...so go ahead & try a little mayo! Thanks for posting...I thought my Grandpa Gump was the only one to ever eat this!"
"There are others out there? I love these, but everyone thinks it sounds gross. I have been eating dill pickles with peanutbutter since I was a kid. Yummy."
"This is one of my favorite treats. I started making them one day because i love pickles (on anything) and I love peanut butter (on anything). This is good w/ ALL pickles. Dills, gherkins, bread & butters etc. As a child, my mother once made me a sandwich of bread & butter pickles and cream cheese on pumpernickel. It was so amazing I still eat it to this day. Buttered toast also works wonderfully. Maybe that's why they call them bread & butter pickles. They go great together! I LOVE PICKLE SANDWICHES!"
"well there is a first time for everything, and this was my first peanut butter and pickle sandwich. It was good! I wasn't sure if I would like it or not so I made half a sandwhich and went back and made another one. I used dill sandwich pickles, wheat bread and creamy peanut butter. I have to say I think I like this better than a regular old peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This really satisfies my craving for something sweet and salty. Thanks for posting this, I would never have thought of making this myself!"
"i must be really hungry cause i was sitting here and saw this recipe and thought"why not try it" Suprisingly, this wasnt to bad. I am not a fan of sweet pickles, so like another reviewer suggested i used dill. And i thought it was really tasty. I will definantly make this again, i may even see if i can get the kids to try it."
"I have loved this sandwich for years! I think my Dad first introduced me to it when I was little. My favorite pickle to use is a crunchy, garlicky kosher dill. I thought I was the only one who loved this! So glad to see it posted among more high falutin' recipes!"
"Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ Since I love peanut butter AND sweet pickles, this one was right up my alley ~ chunky peanut butter, winter wheat bread [oh, yes, & I added about one tablespoon of dark raisins!] along with the pickles, & I had an OUTSTANDINGLY different kind of sandwich! Thanks for the suggestion!"
"Well, unlike some of these other people here, I didn't grow up on these. My parents would think it's gross, haha. But I tried this just now and it's awesome. I used toasted white bread (it's all I have right now), but I'm dying to try it on toasted homemade wheat bread! I use Crazy Richards natural peanut butter, which to me tastes better than any other kind. It's not as thick and dry as other pb, and there's no sugar(yet it has lots of flavor), so it works with more recipes. And I used Vlasic Stackers bread and butter pickles for this, and it was good. And it's so darn easy. Everybody should try this at least once. This will be a regular for me from now on!"
"I can't believe that this is on here! I have eaten these since I was a little girl. THIS MUST USE PICKLE PLANKS ONLY- the krispier the better- i like Vlasick... DILL is the best, HAS to be jiff peanut butter and I like it on white, wheat, whatever... it's an AMAZING blend of texture and flavor- pretty much anyone i have try this is hooked! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT"
"I've been eating these since I was a kid too. Like the white bread toasted and always use dill pickles. I acquired this odd liking from my mother who also likes peanut butter and onion sandwiches and peanut butter and radish....."
"I have been eating these since I was a child. I am not a peanut butter lover, but with DILL pickles ONLY, it is smooth, creamy, sweet, salty, crunchy, crisp, sour, and tart. White bread is best. "
