National Fluffernutter Day has Arrived: Here’s What You Need to Know

We all have our favorite food holidays, but October 8th may just take the cake. On this day, we celebrate National Fluffernutter Day. But what exactly is a Fluffernutter sandwich? It turns out that it’s a super simple treat that consists of only three ingredients. Let’s dive in and learn more about this sandwich and why it deserves its own special day.

What is a Fluffernutter Sandwich?

The classic Fluffernutter sandwich is an American invention composed of two slices of white bread filled with creamy peanut butter and fluffy marshmallow fluff. The combination of the two ingredients creates a unique flavor that many people can’t get enough of—hence, why there’s an entire day dedicated to celebrating it! It takes less than 10 minutes to make and can be enjoyed as a snack or dessert.

The History Behind the Fluffernutter

The famous marshmallow creme was first invented in 1917 by Archibald Query of Somerville, Massachusetts (a.k.a “Fluff Town”). He called his invention “Toot Sweet Marshmallow Fluff” and sold it door-to-door in New England before introducing it to local grocery stores. The original recipe has barely changed since then! As for the Peanut Butter part of the equation, that’s been around since at least 1895 when Dr. John Harvey Kellogg patented it as a protein substitute for those who didn’t eat meat. So you see, even though the name “Fluffernutter” wasn’t coined until 1960 in an advertisement campaign by Durkee-Mower Inc., the individual components have been around much longer than that!

How to Celebrate National Fluffernutter Day

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the best way to celebrate this delicious holiday is by making your own FlufferNutter sandwich! However, if you want something different there are plenty of ways to mix up the traditional recipe without compromising on taste or nostalgia. For instance, you can switch out white bread for whole wheat or even try adding some chocolate chips for an extra touch of sweetness (trust us—it’s heavenly!). If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even use flavored marshmallows like strawberry or banana instead of regular ones –the possibilities are endless!
National Fluffernutter Day is coming up on October 8th so don’t forget to celebrate this fun food holiday with your own version of the classic sandwich! Whether you choose to go traditional or spruce things up with creative variations like adding chocolate chips or flavored marshmallows, one thing’s for sure – you won’t regret taking some time out of your day to enjoy this sweet treat! Happy National Fluffernutter Day everyone!
