The Scenario: The perfect peanut butter & jelly sandwich consists of white bread, Skippy® peanut butter, and Welch’s® grape jelly… in my opinion. The soft fluffy bread serves as a delicious conduit for that delightful sweet and salty gooey combination. If one ingredient is missing, the taste just isn’t the same. The same applies for the personal characteristics of one who celebrates others with sincerity time and time again.
