Our full-fledged peanut-butter taste test resulted in some good, some inedible, and some mystifying combinations. One that left many of us spouting question marks was the sandwich of peanut butter, mayonnaise, pickle, and lettuce: Why did it sort of taste like a tuna sandwich? Do we want to eat it again? Maybe? 

The journey to resolve how we felt about said sandwich involved some deep conversation, shut-eye contemplation, and soliciting friends’ assistance. Enter Katie Quinn, a food enthusiast and journalist whose YouTube videos are both fun and awesome (why can't we all be so bubbly on camera?). She is a fan of the PB&P and makes a pretty convincing argument in its favor.

Watch above and let us know: Did you grow up on these? Is the combo of peanut butter and pickles just a little too quirky? And, say hi to Katie —  you'll be seeing a lot more of her around here (not just because we really want to like peanut-butter-and-pickle sandwiches).
