So, a day late, I am wishing happy birthday to one of my favorite things - Marshmallow Fluff! On May 14, 1920 in Massachusetts, H. Allen Durkee and Fred L. Mower, decided to work together to make this sweet invention. Previously candy makers, they started out with little money and an idea - within ten years they had opened a factory in Lynn, Massachusetts and were the largest distributors of marshmallow cream in New England.
"Want something delicious
You know well enough
You'll get your wishes
With Marshmallow Fluff"
Fluff went on to collaborate with other products to develop some time-tested favorite recipes, such as Kellogg's Rice Krispies (who doesn't love those Rice Krispie treats?), and Nestle's for a simple fudge recipe that still is on the label of every jar of Fluff sold!
And, the most famous Fluff collaboration: The "Fluffernutter"!
