Fluff Festival?

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 Massachusetts.  May the Fluff be with you.

I cannot even have that in my house.. I could eat it right out of the jar. Have enough trouble with all the stuff I've already had in the house and have been gorging on.. Hope you having fun.
