This week, ESPN set the Internet ablaze by revealing the NBA’s secret addiction...to peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. For nearly a decade, pro basketball players have been scarfing down sandwiches at a blistering pace before, during, and after games.
What is it about the humble PB&J that brings 7-foot centers to their knees without a fix? Is it the quick burst of energy? Is it the addicting sweet & salty combo? Or is it just the comfort of a childhood culinary classic? PB&Js might not seem like much, but their unparalleled punch is keeping an entire league afloat...all for less than 70 cents per sandwich.
