Melt It! certainly have a way with melting things - cheese, for the most part, but also Snickers, Milky Ways and Butterfingers, because candy, like just about anything, becomes completely molten when fried. Case in point: the PB&J.
After the entire sandwich gets battered and fried to a super-crisp golden-brown, the creamy peanut butter swirls into the strawberry jelly. It's sweet and rather tasty, but it's no longer lunch or an afternoon snack. This is dessert, and more than a few bites will practically kill you. But if you're going to honor National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day (today), you might as well go big. And greasy. Since Melt It! is a grilled-cheese spot, we also tried one of the signature sandwiches, but we'll save that for National Grilled Cheese Day.
