We ate them as kids, there’s a festival dedicated to them, and now they’ve gotten the respect and acknowledgement they deserve, with a listing in Merriam Webster!
We’re talkin’ Fluffernutters here! You know, the sandwich of childhood dreams. The marshmallow Fluff and peanut butter delight first became popular in the 1960s. The star of the show was not the soft white bread, or the creamy peanut butter, but the sticky-sweet Fluff! Marshmallow Fluff was actually invented by Archibald Query in Somerville, MA back in 1917. The following year, the Red Sox won the World Series. Coincidence?
Merriam-Webster defines the popular lunch staple as: “A sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow crème between two slices of white sandwich bread.”
So, no getting all granola on the iconic sandwich by choosing multi-gran bread.
The dictionary added 455 new words! Well, the world is evolving.
