National Fluffernutter Day!

October 8th, is National Fluffernutter Day!


Marshamallow Fluff History:
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:

A delicious sweet & salty combo:

Hungry Meets Healthy version:
Multi-Grain wrap, TJ's almond butter, Fluff, banana slices...amazing.....! 


I justify eating fluff because there is less sugar and fewer calories than a lot of jellies out there! hehehe.

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!


  1. haha, love the trick, motherfluffer!

  2. Oh no! I missed the holiday! :( I'm devastated.

  3. can you believe I've never had fluffernutter? I should be locked up in an asylum... spreadable marshmellows is a dream!

  4. Ahh I love these sandwiches!! I have not had one in forever though.. Marshmallow fluff might just sneak into my grocery cart next trip!
