October 8 is National Fluffernutter Day

Personal Chef Palm Beach


Here are today’s five thing to know about Fluffernutter:
  1. A Fluffernutter is a sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow creme, usually served on white bread.
  2. Variations of the sandwich include the substitution of wheat bread and the addition of various sweet, salty and savory ingredients.
  3. The term fluffernutter can also be used to describe other food items, primarily desserts, that incorporate peanut butter and marshmallow creme.
  4. The sandwich was first created in the early 20th century after marshmallow creme, a sweet marshmallow-like spread, was invented in the U.S. state of Massachusetts. Archibald Query of Somerville, Massachusetts, invented a product he called Marshmallow Creme in 1917, and Emma and Amory Curtis of Melrose, Massachusetts, invented Snowflake Marshmallow Creme in 1913.
  5. During World War I, Emma Curtis published a recipe for a peanut butter and marshmallow creme sandwich, which is the earliest known example of a Fluffernutter.
