AB&J Glow-up #1

First up, we have the AB&J Kebobs, where sweet Crofter’s Organic Strawberry Premium Fruit Spread meets Justin’s naturally delicious Almond Butter, all skewered together for a delightful, mouthwatering treat.




  • 1) Begin by creating two sandwiches. First, spread the Crofter’s Organic Premium Strawberry Fruit Spread on a slice of bread and top with an additional slice of bread. Then spread the Justin’s Classic Almond Butter on a slice of bread and top with the last slice of bread.
  • 2) Next, cut the crust off the sandwiches and cut into bite-size squares that are the same size—this makes them easier to stack. Grab a skewer, start with an almond butter square, and push the skewer through the center. Next, add a blueberry to the skewer then a fruit spread square. Repeat until the skewer is full.
  • 3) Cut off the pointy end of the skewer and top with a full strawberry. Pack kebobs into the lunchbox and enjoy!


AB&J Glow-up #2

Next in line are the AB&J Tacos—yes, you heard that right! These mini tacos are bursting with fruity goodness from Crofter’s Organic Seedless Raspberry Premium Fruit Spread and sweet nutty flavor from Justin’s naturally delicious Honey Almond Butter, creating a fiesta in every bite.




  • 1) Begin by using an empty jar or large cup to stamp out 3 round circles from the bread.
  • 2) Next, spread 1 tsp. of Justin’s Honey Almond Butter on to the circle of bread and drizzle 1 tsp. of Crofter’s Organic Premium Seedless Raspberry Fruit Spread on top. Top with a few fresh blueberries and a sprinkle of crushed graham crackers. Repeat for each taco.
  • 3) Fold into taco shapes, pack into the lunchbox, and enjoy!

AB&J Glow-up #3

For those looking for lunchtime fun on the roll, we present the AB&J Roll-ups! Sweet Crofter’s Organic Concord Grape Premium Fruit Spread and a banana wrapped snugly in soft tortillas with a swirl of Justin’s naturally delicious Almond Butter, perfect for rolling into adventure.

AB&J Roll-ups



  • 1) Begin by spreading out the Crofter’s Organic Premium Concord Grape Fruit Spread & Justin’s Classic Almond Butter on to the tortilla until it reaches 1-2 inches from the edge.
  • 2) Place the banana on one end of the tortilla and gently roll it up. Try to wrap it as tight as possible without breaking the banana so that the roll-ups stay together.
  • 3) Once rolled up, slice it into roughly 1” rounds. Pack roll-ups into the lunchbox and enjoy!


AB&J Glow-up #4

AB&J Protein Bites

  • 3) Pack the protein bites into the lunchbox and enjoy!
