National Fluffernutter Day is a wonderful holiday dedicated to a delicious treat! Who doesn’t love a sweet sandwich made of white bread, peanut butter and marshmallow fluff? We are sure that there are no such people here. Therefore, on October 8, we invite you to the table!
It is believed that the Fluffernutter sandwich was first created by Amory and Emma Curtis from Massachusetts in 1913. During the war, they published the recipe, calling it the Liberty Sandwich. The sandwich quickly gained popularity among both adults and children. In 2006, the state assembly proposed making the sandwich an official property of Massachusetts, but the idea was not supported.
In 1917, Archibald Curie also invented marshmallow cream, which he sold to Durkee-Mower. This company quickly became famous and the demand for marshmallow products began to grow. In 2006, the first marshmallow festival was held to celebrate the delicacy and unite its admirers.
Marshmallows have many surprising properties:
- They have medicinal properties and can be used to soothe sore throats and lower cholesterol.
- They strengthen skin and nails.
- They can be “revived” if they dry out by putting them in cream or holding them over steam for a few minutes.
- Most people buy them in the summer.
- They instantly absorb odors due to their porous structure.
- They are approved by nutritionists, with a low calorie content.
How to take part
Making homemade marshmallows is easy if you find the right recipe. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work out the first time – cooking requires patience and accurate following of the instructions. Treat your neighbors, friends, and acquaintances with your creation and don’t forget to take a photo of the dessert and share it on social media.
