With so many new products joining the Jif family this year, there are now even more ways for kids to get creative and incorporate new flavors and varieties into their sandwiches.  From giving the classic peanut butter sandwich a makeover using Jif Peanut Butter to whipping up a unique sandwich recipe featuring NEW Jif Hazelnut Spreads, Jif Whipped Peanut Butter Spreads, Jif Almond Butter or Jif Cashew Butter – the possibilities are endless!

"Throughout the history of the contest, we have received so many delicious and creative recipes from young chefs and their parents," said Maribeth Burns, Vice President, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. "This year, we're excited to feature an even bigger portfolio of Jif products in the contest, providing an endless number of possibilities for truly unique, culinary creations."
