Definition of Fluffernutter sandwich
A fluffernutter is a sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Its name comes from the common use of "Marshmallow Fluff" brand marshmallow creme. It is particularly popular in the Northeastern United States states and has been proposed as the official Massachusetts state sandwich. It's creamy, it's sweet and it's become a staple of lunch boxes for generations of New England school children.
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.
"Fluffernutter" is a registered trademark of Durkee-Mower Inc., the maker of "Marshmallow Fluff" brand marshmallow creme. In 2006, Durkee-Mower sued Williams-Sonoma Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, alleging that Williams-Sonoma was selling a marshmallow and peanut butter chocolate-covered candy under the "Fluffernutter" name.
