A state senator is taking aim at a childhood food staple: Fluff.
Sen. Jarrett Barrios was so outraged his son Nathaniel, a third-grader, was given a peanut butter and Fluff sandwich at the King Open School in Cambridge, he said he plans to file legislation to outlaw the marshmallow spread in school lunch programs.
“A Fluff sandwich as the main course of a nutritious lunch just doesn’t fly in 2006,” Barrios said. “It seems a little silly to have an amendment on Fluff, but it’s called for by the silliness of schools offering this as a healthy alternative in the first place.”
Barrios said he will offer an amendment to a junk-food bill that would severely limit the serving in schools of marshmallow spreads such as Marshmallow Fluff, concocted by a Massachusetts man before World War I and which still is made by a family owned business in Lynn.
Marshmallow Fluff and peanut butter sandwiches — known as Fluffernutters — have long been a favorite of New England kids.
“I’ve been eating Fluff nearly my entire life,” said Don Durkee, 80, whose family started the company that makes Fluff in 1920. “The irony of this is Marshmallow Fluff happened to be invented in Somerville, Barrios’s home district.”
This is like that bitch Combs trying to ban PB&J from schools. Or was it cupcakes? I forget… ANYWAY, marshmallow fluff is one of the few purely American foods. Hating it is like hating America. And the troops. And flag. And your grandma. It deserves better than to have some overzealous douche of a Senator running it down. It should be respected, admired even.
And don’t tell me about nutrition, asshat. There are carbs AND protein AND fats in a fluffernutter sandwich. EVERYTHING a growing child needs to be among the first picked on the playground when it’s time to divide up and play kickball. Seriously, if your kid ain’t eating fluffernutters, he may as well be the dork kid that always gets picked last. And you know what happens to that guy.
You may remember that a fluffernutter sandwich endorsed TDP Chair Boyd Richie last year. Need we say more?
