Did you know that there was an annual street festival to celebrate that venerable creation Marshmallow Fluff? Y-e-s-s-e-r-i-e, Bob, it’s for real. And it honors Archibald Query, who invented the gooey, sticky spread back in 1917.
The Sixth Annual “What the Fluff: A Tribute to Union Square Invention” will be held Saturday, Sep 24th in
Union Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. And there’s a cooking contest … No joke! The categories are:
§ Best Original Recipe
§ Best Traditional Recipe
§ Most Creative
§ Best Youth Entry
§ Grand Prize: Best Overall
I, of course, will not be able to enter because you have to take at least 6 servings of your best Fluff recipe and I would NEVER be able to let those servings leave my kitchen uneaten. I’m just that way - I’ve never met a Marshmallow Treat or a Peep that I didn’t like.
Fluffernutter, anybody? You can even have yours on a T-shirt, tote bag or get the comic books:
Thank you, Durkee-Mower, for bringing this totally joyful treat into our homes and good luck to all you Fluffy-cooks up in
. May the Fluff be with you. Massachusetts
