NEW YORK, June 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- What's better than Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter? Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter cookies of course! That's why the Company has just announced their plan to introduce a peanut butter cookie bar at their cozy downtown sandwich shop, 240 Sullivan Street (between Bleecker & West 3rd.) The cookies, which go on sale June 12th– which just happens to be National Peanut Butter Cookie Day – will be sold three for $3 and will be available until June 19th.
Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies – made with all-natural peanut butter and marked with the traditional "criss-cross" fork marks that we all love.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies – just like the old fashioned kind but chock full of delicious milk chocolate chips.
PB&J Cookies – peanut butter cookie with a dollop of raspberry preserves in the center – the perfect combination.
