Road Trippers Will Soon Be Able to Pay $3 for a Gas Station PB&J Created By Tim Love

The chef is expanding his empire into convenience stores

Because chips and soda don’t constitute dinner even while on a road trip, Fort Worth chef Tim Love has “created” a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at convenience store chain Pilot Flying J.

The sandwich, first in a line-up of new gas station fare from Love, will be on offer for only a couple of weeks at two DFW-area Pilot stations — one in Fort Worth, another in Weatherford. It’s made with “organic peanut butter and grape jelly on white potato bread,” according to a press release, which ostensibly makes it one of the healthier options in the gas station’s arsenal of prepared meals and snacks.

Love announced his partnership with Pilot Flying J last year, with the aim of bring chef-created food to an environment that is generally free of fancy ingredients or techniques. Gas station diners will soon be able to score Love’s PB&J for $3, or $4 with a bag of Lay’s kettle chips, arguably a bargain compared to other healthy options.

Love’s PB&J will be tested for only three weeks in Fort Worth and Weatherford. If it’s a success, the sandwich will be rolled out to the other Pilot Flying J locations in the Southwest along with the rest of Love’s line of gas station fare.
