FLUFF!

jeff and went to the Food Lion in Asheboro last night to pick up a few groceries.  we haven't shopped there all that much even though they are owned by the same company that owns my favorite grocery store in NH - Hannaford.  there are similarities between the two but Hannaford has lots more to choose from.
as we were strolling down an aisle jeff pointed out that they carry Fluff!!!  i hadn't seen any since moving here... the stores have Kraft Marshmallow Creme but it isn't the same as Fluff, made in Lynn MA (Lynn, Lynn, the city of sin... as the old saying goes).
not that i eat tons of Fluff but it has always been a staple in my pantry.  it has so many uses!  you can put it on ice cream, make whoopie pie filling with it, fudge, rice krispy treats are better with it... and of course there is the famous Fluffernutter Sandwich!
so last nights treat was ice cream sundaes!

my sundae toppings were chocolate raspberry wine sauce,  a spoon full of Fluff and a blob of
Vanilla Cream... it was delicious but over the top sweet.  it may take days for me to recover from the sugar overload!

  1. Fluff on saltine crackers with peanut butter!!! YUM! Long ago when I was out partying a lot with a friend of mine in high school , we would come home pretty wasted and eat this stuff from the jar! Every time I eat it I think of her :)

  3. Never heard of fluff, hay, but that is a sugar overload for sure. Is it marshmallow? I don't like Marshmallow unless it's in smoors.

  4. it is marshmallow like craft marshmallow creme only better... i am not sure how far away from Massachusetts it is distributed. jeff had never heard of it until he moved to NH.
    I think it is most famous for the fluffernutter sandwich recipe that is printed on the container:
    fluff, peanutbutter and bread. of course when we were kids it was best with really fresh white bread :-)

  7. Yes, Michele. Being raised in Mass., peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches were a staple lunch menu. I thought I'd comment in here, rather than on my blog, about the firing time of my last firing. Yes, 4.5 hours. It amazed me, but it was the first full firing with new silicon carbide shelves. They're lighter and less dense than the old cordierite shelves, so must absorb the heat much faster than the old ones. Hence the short firing time. No particular difference that I can see in the glazes and clay body, so I guess I'll stick with the firing routine. Saves a lot of gas.

  9. Yes... we did have fluff, but it was an extravagance reserved for special deserts, not a staple, and never had it with peanut butter ...we mixed Karol syrup with our peanut butter...on toast and for sandwiches...or just mixed sugar if we did have the syrup. And now that makes me think of my uncles mother, we all called her "Mama Pegram" ...she made sandwiches for me that were just plain butter and sugar mashed together, and spread on white bead...she was from Seagrove...

    ...Thanks Gary... for the complement.
    , and thanks for All of the nice thing you say about me and my work.
