The Marshmallow Fluff concoction was created by a GENIUS named Archibald Query in 1917. He sold it door-to-door until World War I when there was a sugar shortage. He later sold the recipe for $500 to two war vets, H. Allen Durkee and Fred L. Mower, who had experience making candies. The two men sold door-to-door and eventually had their own factory in Lynn, MA.
Growing up in Masschusetts, the fluffernutter sandwich was a staple in my diet. We also used fluff as a hot cocoa topping. It is different than marshmallows — it is much sweeter and has a whipped consistency. Fluff contains Corn Syrup, Sugar Syrup, Dried Egg Whites and Vanillin…so bad but oh so good.
To make a fluffernutter, you only need three ingredients: bread, peanut butter, and fluff.
In honor of National Fluffernutter Day, I decided to relive my childhood and make one! Auntie Kelly, who also lived in Massachusetts, had one too! She had the classic fluffernutter, and I made mine a little differently.
One side of bread with peanut butter, the other with fluff:
Multi-Grain wrap, TJ’s almond butter, Fluff, banana slices…amazing…..!
I was planning on eating this for dinner with Brandon, but noooooooo he doesn’t want to be a Yankee. Pff. This weekend I’m going to make fluffernutter oat bran and trick him. HA HA HA…Stay tuned and pray he doesn’t read this before Saturday morning!
