Rodd and Todd’s Jelly and Candy Sandwich
Todd: Mr. Simpsons, can we have another jelly and candy sandwich?
Homer: Sure, knock yourselves out. And call me Homer.
Rodd: Daddy said it’s rude to call grownups by their first name.
Homer: Daddy’s not here.

I’ve always wondered about the whole “not calling grownups by their first name” rule; especially since I’m technically what many would consider an adult…I mean, I’ve been tried as one. Anyway, I’m fine with kids addressing me by my first name. I’m also ok with them eating a Jelly and Candy Sandwich, especially since the whole “eating sugar causes hyper kids” theory has now been thoroughly debunked.
- White Bread
- Grape Jelly
- Gummy Bears
Spread grape jelly evenly onto bread. Place candy accordingly. Try not to go into a diabetic coma.
This sandwich is basically the antithesis of the Peanut Butter and Pretzel Sandwich. While that sandwich was far too salty, the Jelly and Candy Sandwich is far too sweet. However, I can see how it would appeal to children, particularly ones like Rodd and Todd Flanders who aren’t allowed to eat sugar on a regular basis. Although, my understanding is that there isn’t any sugar in pixie sticks so I think we’re safe on that one…The point is, if I’m going to eat something sweet, I’d rather enjoy some quality ice cream or maybe eat an entire pie. Does that mean I’m finally growing up? I think that it does, which also means kids need to stop addressing me by my first name and show me some respect dammit!
