From childhood to adulthood, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have been a staple in our diets. And as college students, they can become our only diet (along with ramen noodles) for those days when we’re in a rush or low on funds. While our traditional buddy will never fail us, it’s nice to switch it up sometimes. Try out these tasty, simple combos below because really, can peanut butter ever actually go wrong?

Instead of peanut butter, try apple butter with sliced apples for lighter, fruity pick.
