March is National Peanut Month, and we’re celebrating by scouring the city to find the best peanut butter-based treats. Here at CBSNewYork.com, we love the stuff – and we bet many of you do, too. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a childhood staple for many of us. Even the King of Rock & Roll himself, Elvis Presley, had a penchant for peanut butter. These are our four favorites throughout New York City. By Annie Reuter.

For a true peanut butter indulgence, head over to Peanut Butter & Co. and try The Elvis. Their most popular sandwich, it’s modeled after The King of Rock & Roll. The sandwich he used to eat, The Elvis consists of peanut butter, banana, and honey – all fried on a hot griddle (you can add bacon for added deliciousness and for only $1 extra).
