Last night, the local ice cream shop’s daily special was a  Fluffernutter sundae. My daughter didn’t know what Fluffernutter was, but I remembered it from my college days as a mix of peanut butter and marshmallow. Oh, yum. Not for the calorie counter.

My wealth of knowledge daughter proceeded to tell me that a “fluffer” is a person with a specific unusual, yeah, let’s call it unusual, occupation.  Google it yourself. So she thought it was funny that fluffer was combined with nutter to form such a heavenly food product.

Of course, once we got home I had to research Fluffernutter a little further.  I found out that it’s is actually a sandwich made from white bread with a layer of peanut butter and a layer of marshamallow fluff.  It’s also the unofficial state sandwich of Massachusetts.  I couldn’ t find if PA had a state sandwich, but I guess it could the cheesesteak if you were from Philly or maybe the Primanti type sandwich if you hail from Pittsburgh. I did find that Pennsylvania could be the first state to have a state gun, as there is a bill in the Senate for this right now. The Pennsylvania Long Rifle would be the gun.  That’s just great.

    Oooo! Yum! I used to love PB and marshmallow creme sandwiches but we never had a name for them.
