There are those things we eat, make, read, and gush over that are just too good to keep to ourselves. Here, we resist the urge to use too many exclamation points and let you in on our latest crushes.

Today: We're slowly easing into the idea of peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. Katie Quinn makes a pretty convincing argument for them -- in video form.

Our full-fledged peanut butter taste test resulted in some good, some inedible, and some still-mystifying combinations. One that left many with question marks was the sandwich of peanut butter, mayonnaise, pickle, and lettuce: Why did it sort of taste like a tuna fish 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 video journalist who has made videos for us over the years and whose YouTube videos are so 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 or 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).
