October 8: National Fluffernutter Day

Nibble on nostalgia with an All-American childhood sandwich—Fluffernutter! It is basically white bread with a peanut butter and marshmallow crème filling. But it is the specific brand of the latter ingredient, Marshmallow Fluff, that makes the sandwich an official Fluffernutter. Highlander remembers the sweet and simple school lunch as well as the catchy jingle. The lyrics make it easy for the kid in all of us to fix a Fluffernutter on National Fluffernutter Day!



  • Two slices of bread (white is traditional)
  • Peanut butter
  • Marshmallow Fluff (or marshmallow crème)


(From the official Marshmallow Fluff jingle)

Oh, you need fluff fluff fluff to make a Fluffernutter

Marshmallow Fluff and lots of peanut butter

First you spread spread spread your bread with peanut butter

Add Marshmallow Fluff and have a Fluffernutter

When you enjoy-joy-joy your fluff and peanut butter

You’re glad you have enough for another Fluffernutter.



  • Thanks to our kumare Cherlyn B. in Maine for sending us a jar of Marshmallow Fluff, which is available only in a few states and online.
