I think Jif makes individual tubs of PB, and they hold at least enough for thickly smearing PB on two slices of bread.

I have pre-PB'd tortilla wraps and they hold up well for several days.

But generally, I just get a small nalgene screw top jar or a small light-weight plastic container with lid and fill it with PB and use jelly packs or honey packs to add.

Good idea... Repackaging or buying in individual portions seems expensive and a hassle. Peanut butter and jelly tortilla wraps sound fantastic!

Of course, this is just a personal preference, but I tried this last week because I had an abundance of tortilla wraps and wanted to get through them. For some reason the taste of them w/ the pb&j just didn't taste good at all to me. And I'm absolutely not a picky eater. Maybe that's just one thing that my taste buds don't like...or maybe others might agree with them. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

For me it depends on the type of tortilla. I do not care for PB on corn tortillas but love it on flour tortillas. I don't make them in advance though, I just take the tortillas plain, PB in a separate jar and slather it on when I want to eat.

A sort of standard lunch staple for my wife and I are tortillas with PB and instead of jelly we just stick some sort of dried fruit in there and roll it up. It works fine for a week or so trip, and different dried fruits can add a bit of variety. And tortillas are a good choice if you're carrying a bear can, they pack in there pretty space-efficiently.

However, after a few days of this every day I get sick of it. What I plan to do in future is carry some Fantastic Foods Refried Bean powder and mix up the bean paste right in the tortilla (cold). Per recommendation from Yo Yo of PCT fame, this works well, at least for me. Also per his recommendation a few crushed corn chips adds something to the mix, and of course, some olive oil. Soon you go from a moderate calorie lunch item to a relatively high calorie meal !

Anyway, if you are carrying tortillas on longer trips, I think it's good to have multiple things you can fill 'em with unless you're the type of person that really can happily eat the same bloody thing day after day ...
