Battle of the Fluffernutter roils Beacon Hill.
it began with a senator's contentious call:
State Rep. Jarrett Barrios, D-Cambridge fired the first shot, vowing earlier this week to file an amendment limiting schools to serving Fluffernutters just once a week as the main meal of the day.
peanut butter and marshmellow sandwiches but once a week? that's madness, i say, madness!
Barrios' amendment seemed anything but silly to Democratic state Rep. Kathi-Anne Reinstein, D-Revere, whose district is near Lynn, home of Durkee-Mower Inc., the local company that has produced the marshmallow concoction for more than 80 years. The day after Barrios announced his amendment, Reinstein fired off an e-mail announcing her own legislation designating the Fluffernutter the "official sandwich of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts."
only in massachusetts, folks.
but i've gotta tell you - fluff is frighteningly good. a jar of fluff and a bag of rold gold mini-pretzels is snack-time heaven.
i wonder if you can order it online...
