What is Marshmallow Cream?
"Marshmallow creme is an American food item. It is a very sweet, spreadable, marshmallow-like confection. Marshmallow creme and peanut butter are used to create a Fluffernutter sandwich.
Variations of the Fluffernutter Sandwich
Variations of this recipe include the addition of bananas, honey, graham crackers, M&M's, or any ingredients that are deemed compatible with peanut butter. The traditional method of combining the peanut butter and marshmallow creme is simply spreading one slice of bread with each and combining them into a sandwich; however, some purists contend that mixing equal amounts of both in a bowl and spreading them together results in a superior texture and taste.

"One popular brand of marshmallow creme, sold principally in the
Northeastern United States, is Marshmallow Fluff. It is also available in
Canada and in many north European supermarkets (e.g., Scandinavia,
UK, Germany) in standard and strawberry flavour. Its ingredients
consist only of corn syrup, sugar syrup, vanilla flavor, and egg whites.
Ricemellow Creme, manufactured by Suzanne's Specialties, Inc., is a
common vegan equivalent."
