Well now, cats & kittens. Do we have a history with Fluff? I still love its marshmallowy yumminess. Fluffernutters were a staple of my lunchtime diet when I was a kid. What’s a Fluffernutter? Why, two slices of Wonder Bread, slathered generously with peanut butter on one and Fluff on the other, of course. Heaven. My mom made the best Fluffernutters. Just the right amount of innards. And love — don’t forget the love.
‘Course, those were days when having what amounted to a sugar sandwich for lunch was not necessarily frowned upon. Case in point: remember eating Honey Smacks breakfast cereal before they changed its name? I do. Anyway, I loved my Fluffernutters. Mavis didn’t, though, which was fine. More for me.
There’s even a website dedicated totally to Fluff, operated by its Boston-based manufacturer. There you can read about the storied history of Fluff. They even offer the famous “Yummy Book” of Fluff recipes for free download. (Don’t think I wasted a New York minute before snagging that bad boy.)
Best part of the Fluff site: the hot cocoa mugs. I covet them.
But that’s not all there is to Fluffdom. There’s a whole Fluff universe out there that I did not know existed. Next year, you can attend the What the Fluff? Fluff Fest in Massachusetts, where all things Fluff really come together. From drinking a “Fluffachino” at the coffee shop (which really does sound yummy) to getting screened for diabetes (no lie), there’s tons of fun to be had.
Heh…even puffy, stuffy Boston University showed up. Wow.
And what if you — like myself, on this nice, warm morning — have no Fluff on hand? You’re Fluffless? Bereft of Fluff? Well then, you can make your own. Five stars for the Fantastic Marshmallow Fluff Clone recipe.
Happy Friday, fiends. Think fluffy thoughts.
