Putting a man on the moon was briefly considered mankind’s greatest achievement, until Neil Armstrong invented sliced bread. Savor civilization’s finest creation with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a punchcard for five brown-bag lunches for dine in, carry-out, or free delivery from The PBJ Shop (a $25 value). Each brown-bag lunch includes:
- One PB&J sandwich
- One bag of chips
- One drink<p>
At The PBJ Shop, inner-child-appeasing chefs craft 15 restaurant-quality updates of the treasured schoolyard snack on white or wheat bread. The toasted cheesy PB bagel satiates morning munchies with generous smatterings of cream cheese and Jif peanut butter, and the Banana Split sandwich distances itself from its ice-cream roots by stuffing bananas, chocolate syrup, and loads of legal paperwork between two sturdy slices of bread. Creative customers may craft culinary concoctions of their own by building a drizzling a standard sandwich with one of six fruity jams and sprinkling its surface with any of 10 additional toppings ($0.75 each), such as crisp strips of bacon or piquant yet flavorful raisins. Upon request, chefs can also trim away crusts so patrons won’t have to chew through white bread’s traditional bulletproof plating. Servings of salty chips and a thirst-quenching drink round out the brown-bag-lunch package.
