A new eatery on the Main Line is serving up some tasty creations — all with one main ingredient: peanut butter. The rest is up to you — though you’re encouraged to stray from your comfort zone.

KYW’s Ian Bush reports if you want to stick to what you know, PB&U on Lancaster Avenue in Wayne serves up four kinds of jelly. But that’s only the beginning:

“Potato chips, pound cake, pretzels…apple and cheddar, Nutella, Fluff, M&Ms, semi-sweet morsels..”

Listen to more of Ian’s interview:

Then there are the sandwiches.  Some of them, at first blush, you’d think only a pregnant woman — such as ownerpbu 007 PB Not Just For J at New Main Line Eatery Mercury Amodio (right) — would like:

“I was craving savory. So I added bacon — and I said no, I want more. So we put a pickle on.  And I said come on, just one more! And cheddar was it. And I just fell in love.”

You can test your devotion with PB&U’s four different honey-roasted peanut butters — creamy, homestyle, super chunk, and chocolate PB — all of which are ground in-store.

They’ll spread them on multi-grain, wraps, bagels, or brioche — though traditionalists will eat PB on any bread, as long as it’s Wonder White.

There’s even “fondue” and “pizza” — the former, a ramekin filled with your favorite peanut butter and a side of dippers; the latter, an open-faced peanut butter-and-whatever sandwich.

The shop, at 163 E. Lancaster Avenue, has hours that fit early birds and college students.  Amodio says she wants pbu 003 PB Not Just For J at New Main Line Eateryeveryone to feel at home — and to wear a smile, thanks to small details like peanut-shaped tables (left) and ceiling cutouts:

“We wanted to make it kid-friendly, but we also wanted to make it so adults could come and have a savory option if their kids are eating sweet things — and also revisit some of the things that made them feel good about their childhood.”
