There are festivals for nearly every type of food from apples to zucchini, but, I'm sorry to say I missed learning about the What the Fluff? festival its first five years! The festival celebrates Marshmallow Fluff, and the city in which it originated, Somerville, MA.
The festival is taking place this Saturday, September 24. It's only a short 45 minute's drive to Somerville, and who can resist a Marshmallow Fluff celebration?
There's going to be a 70s theme, so don your, or your mother's, old Annie Hall [DVD ANN] outfits before heading out.
There will be a Fluff Cooking Contest at the festival, and there are five award categories! We have at least one book in our cookbook collection that includes a Marshmallow Fluff recipe: The Back of the Box Gourmet by Michael McLaughlin [641.5 MCL].
Let me take this opportunity to remind parents NOT to let their children handle library materials during, or immediately after, consuming a peanut butter, jelly, and Fluff sandwich. Believe it or not, I've been on the desk when a DVD was returned covered in the remnants of such a sandwich! Not a pretty sight!
