jif most creative sandwichOne creative kid’s unique sandwich recipe could help put them on the road to college. Now through November 8, 2013, the makers of Jif® Peanut Butter invite families to ignite their culinary creativity in the kitchen and create an original sandwich recipe for the 12th Annual Jif Most Creative Sandwich Contest. Parents of children between ages 6 and 12 are able to submit their child’s original recipe for a chance to win a $25,000 college fund and a trip to New York City.

From giving the classic peanut butter sandwich a makeover using Jif Peanut Butter to whipping up a unique sandwich recipe featuring Jif Hazelnut Spreads, Jif Whipped Peanut Butter Spreads, Jif Almond Butter or Jif Cashew Butter, the possibilities for kids to get creative and incorporate new flavors and varieties into their sandwiches are endless!

“Throughout the history of the contest, we have received so many delicious and creative recipes from young chefs and their parents,” said Maribeth Burns, Vice President, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. “This year, we’re excited to feature an even bigger portfolio of Jif products in the contest, providing an endless number of possibilities for truly unique, culinary creations.”

Last year, 10-year-old Jacob C. from Morganton, NC took home the grand prize for his creative recipe, the Magnificent Mole Chicken Torta. Jacob’s unique use of Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread in a savory mole sauce earned him a $25,000 college fund.
