NATIONAL FLUFFERNUTTER DAY

National Fluffernutter Day is celebrated annually on October 8th.  This is a day set aside each year to make and enjoy the sandwich which is made with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff.

A sweet marshmallow-like spread, that he called “Marshmallow Cream” was invented in 1917 by Archibald Query in Somerville, Massachusetts.  In 1913 during World War I, Emma and Amory Curtis of Melrose, Massachusetts invented Snowflake Marshmallow Creme and published a recipe for a peanut butter and marshmallow creme sandwich, which is the earliest known example of a Fluffernutter.

Archiblad Query sold his recipe for “Marshmallow Creme” to Durkee-Mower, Inc. who renamed it Marshmallow Fluff and continues to sell it under that name today.

It was in 1960 that the term Fluffernutter was created by an advertising agency for Durkee-Mower in an attempt to effectively market the peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich.
