Events: Marshmallow Fluff Gets the Scholarly Treatment

What were your favorite childhood foods?

Mine were:

  1. Peanut butter and jelly
  2. Cheesecake
  3. Pizza


Even as a kid, I didn’t have much of a sweet tooth. Candy? I could take it or leave it. But apparently lots of folks have fond memories of Marshmallow Fluff.

You can learn about the sticky sweet, a favorite among kids of all ages for the past 75 years, at a May 26 event at the Astor Center. The object of anti- and pro-fluff legislation, marshmallow fluff  remains an American icon. Apparently, even space shuttle astronauts chow down on fluffernutter--that iconic sandwich made from fluff and peanut butter.

The event is sponsored by Gastronomica, the very intellectual food journal. I’ve been to these forums and they’re great for true food zealots, especially anyone with a historical bent.

A fluff cocktail will be served, as well as fluffernutter sandwiches and other fluff-inspired snacks.
