A first-grade Mankato boy is one of five finalists in a national sandwich contest after he created a peanut-butter sandwich that includes blueberries and maple syrup, according to the Pioneer Press.
According to the Press, Sullivan Jacobs named his masterpiece the Blue Monkey Pita, which contains whole-wheat pita bread, blueberries, agave nectar, banana, maple syrup and peanut butter.
The sandwich was pleasing enough to earn him a spot as one of five finalists in the "Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest" which is sponsored by Jif Peanut Butter, according to the Press.
The Press also said Sullivan could potentially win a $25,000 college fund and also $10,000 for educational products. The winner of the grand prize will be revealed March 30 in New York.
Sullivan says he created the recipe one morning when he wanted to have French toast but his 4-year-old brother wanted to eat peanut butter and bananas, the Press said.
