Delicious new snack or meal

Erin and I were walking through the grocery store bakery isle for some items for our Independence Day celebration. I was hot and ready to go home when Erin said, "It's here!" with all the excitement of a nine year old who just received her gift package in the mail. "What's here?" I asked, thinking she's being a little obnoxious. "They have Fluff!" I feel clueless, I've never heard of the stuff. She proceded to explain to me that it's been in the news because some parent at some school decided to cause a stink about serving Peanut Butter and Fluff sandwiches at the school. The judge in the case liked the sandwiches and had the "Fluffernutter" named Massachussetts' State Sandwich. Intrigued, I grabbed a jar off the shelf and went home to try it out. Erin made the sandwiches, extra crunchy for me and creamy peanut butter for her. Yum, and it's great with popcorn too.

I mean Fluffernutter ...

I've only had the Kraft brand myself, but I frequently snack on mini mashmallows, so I'm sure it's great. It is also a key ingredient in some fudge recipes. Schools are crazy if they think they can check 600 students lunches each day.

I think the issue was that the cafeteria was serving Fluffernutters. But if parents don't like it, they should send lunch with their kids that day!

Finally a day when the kids don't dump their lunch in the trash before making it back to the benches. In my experience (in Tustin) the majority of kids eating school lunches weren't paying for them anyway. We were, or our tax dollars at least, so who is there to complain? Fluffernutter anyone?

It's been under a week and the fluff is now all gone. Time to get some more.
