What the Fluff?

We just came across these photos and realized we never uploaded them, so this post is a bit delayed!

Early this fall, we attended the annual festival in our neighborhood honoring a special local treat: Fluff!  If you are not from the Northeastern part of the U.S., it is likely you have not heard of this controversial lunchtime staple, but if you grew up in this area, you know it is a favorite among kids.  Essentially, it is a stickier version of a marshmallow spread.  It was developed right in Union Square, Somerville - our neighborhood!  This year, hundreds turned out for the "What the Fluff?" festival as we did and Alice enjoyed checking out all the people and quirky activities:

Here she is trying a bite of her first Fluffernutter (peanut butter and fluff, on white bread).  She really liked it!:
The agenda for the day was packed - everything from food, to musical acts to dancing and crafts and cultural activities, all dedicated to this sweet treat!
Since the weather was still nice and warm in late September, we went to the park and then spent some time playing outside on the front steps of our house:

Here are some additional photos from the day.  Enjoy!


  1. Hard to say what I love the most, the water fountain pictures are priceless, the slide fun, the family shots great and I love the squash dirty face and Alive looking out the window. I am printing more pictures for sure.

  2. Both my parents grew up in Massachusetts and I lived on fluffernutter sandwiches as a kid- delicious! Albert thought it was so gross when I started making them for Ben, lol! :)
