Mercury Amodio (top photo) has opened her second PB and U — this one at the Moorestown Mall.

“PB and U is peanut butter creations any way you like it,” she tells KYW Newsradio.  “We make our own peanut butter here, and basically it’s just any kind of peanut butter fantasy you can come up with.”

If you can’t come up with your own ideas, Amodio made a list for you — which she says she thought of while she was pregnant:

“Peanut butter, bacon, cheddar, and pickle; peanut butter, Nutella, Fluff, and M&Ms; chocolate, peanut butter, Fluff, and fresh strawberries; or peanut butter, apple, and cheddar.”

“The book has recipies that start from family makeovers,” Pirello says.  “Like if your family loves macaroni and cheese, here’s a healthier way to make it.  All the way to the hardcore things like quinoa and brown rice and miso soup.”
