The Massachusetts House of Representatives has finally granted initial approval to a Bill naming the Fluffernutte
r the official state sandwich. The bill was filed in 2006 by then Representative Kathi-Anne Reinstein
, in response to a motion by State Senator Jarrett Barrios
limiting school Fluff servings to once a week. She thought that motion was, 'nuts'.
There's so much going on in the world and we're gonna diss Fluff, right now?
The Fluffernutter is a peanut butter and Marshmallow Fluff combination and has been a staple in Massachusetts diets for generations.
Fluff was invented in Somerville in 1917 -- and is still made in a plant in nearby Lynn.
From our archives, in 2006, hear former Representative Reinstein on why she felt the need to make the Fluffernutter motion.
