Back to School

It’s time to head back to school, and is there anything more reminiscent of going back to school than the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Whether it’s in that brown bag lunch being carried out the door in the morning or it’s a snack waiting on the counter when the kids get off the bus, the classic peanut butter and jelly combo has been there to comfort so many of us through the years across many generations.

But…what does that have to do with my bakery business?


Even if you aren’t offering the classic PB&J sandwich at your store, you can still usher in the goodies that include peanut butter and jelly and align it perfectly with the back to school season.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Donuts

Sanwhiches may not be th ebest option for your situation, so how about incorporating the combo into America’s favorite pastry: donuts!

PB&J donuts can satisfy any cravings for sweets or even act as a quick breakfast for the kids and adults alike. It may not be a sandwich, but the combinations of peanut butter, jelly and sweet dough will certainly bring back those wonderful child memories that all adults carry with them, while creating new memories for todays’ young ones. Our Westco French Cruller Mix is the perfect mix to use to create these delicious PB&J snacks. This mix results in air pockets specifically designed for fillings- giving you the perfect space to fill up them up with our BakeSense Natural Creamy Peanut Butter and our Westco Strawberry or Blueberry fillings. With the largest fillings portfolio in the market, the possibilities are endless with BakeMark!  

Sandwich Packs 

If you still want to stick to the traditional bread and fillings combo, you can still offer fresh-made bread and buns using our convenient mixes. Our Best Brands Super Soft Bread & Bun Base and our Westco White Bread Base mixes are so easy to use and save you so much time, you’ll be dishing out fresh bread in no time! BakeMark has all you need to provide your customers with a quick and easy option to prep those lunches for the kids as the back-to-school craziness sets in! 

What other options can you offer me? 

BakeMark has so much more to offer for you to be as creative as you’d like! From our frozen line of ready-to-use laminated doughs, to our hundreds of choices of donut mixes, BakeMark has all your baking needs to create as many variations of classics as you can think of.  

The difference between what your customers can pick up off a grocery store shelf versus what they can get from you is the best quality taste with the convenience that everyone craves.
