Ever had a sweet and gooey marshmallow fluff sandwich?

Marshmallow fluff can conjure up so many childhood memories of the good ole’ days eating these yummy Fluffernutter sandwiches!

This 3-ingredient sandwich is made from spreadable marshmallow creme or marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and soft white bread. Marshmallow fluff has been around for over 100 years. It first became popular in the northeastern part of the U.S. You can actually make much more than sandwiches with it, including rice crispy treats, cookies, s’mores, frosting, and more!

Fluff sandwiches are a fave for many on our Hip2Save team!

Many of us relish our favorite fluff combinations like Nutella and fluff, banana and fluff, and just the fluff on white bread as a sandwich. The Fluffernutter seems to be the most popular combination – and it’s definitely very delicious if you haven’t tried it!

“I have so many wonderful memories of eating Marshmallow Fluff sandwiches with peanut butter and white Wonder Bread during the summer at the beach as a kid! Collin, Marley, and I (maybe with some help from our cousins!) would literally take an entire loaf of Wonder Bread, make all the Fluff sandwiches, put them back into the bread bag, and then eat ALL the sandwiches in one day at the beach.” – Bryn

Interesting Fact: I compared my jar of marshmallow fluff to a popular brand of strawberry jelly, and the creme had fewer grams of sugar (and slightly fewer calories) than the jelly per serving! Interesting right? I would have thought the opposite!

    Growing up in New England, these are a staple! And yes, you have to use white bread! My husband and I still make these comfort sandwiches for a late night snack sometimes 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum, such a yummy treat! Thanks for sharing Martha!

  2. BwjPg

    My daughter’s Friday “treat” lunch is a peanut butter, Fluff and chocolate (Nutella) sandwhich! 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum, I bet it’s great with Nutella!

  3. Laura

    I’m from Michigan – never heard of this – doesn’t look good

    • Mia

      Try it… you’ll like it!

    • Jarnett

      I’m also from MI and we ate these all the time as a kid. I prefer toasted white bread. It makes the fluff more spreadable and adds a little crunch to break up the soft texture. Haven’t had one in years but now I just might!

      • Joy

        Try it grilled like a grilled cheese sandwich. 😁

        • John

          I wonder if the trick of grilling with mayo (Dukes?) on the outside of the bread would work here?

          • Kathren Beckwith

            Michigan we love them .

    • Allison

      I’m from Michigan too but I still had these growing up…maybe it’s because my family originated from Massachusetts. I had no idea these were a regional thing! Now pasties, Vernors, Made Rite chips…I wouldn’t expect people outside of Michigan to understand! 🤤

    • Kara

      I’m from Michigan and so is my whole family. We all grew up eating peanut butter and fluff.

    • Vicki

      It’s definitely a New England thing, like coffee milk, it’s “wicked good” and kids and adults alike love fluffanutter sandwiches.

    • Amanda

      I am from Michigan too and have never heard of this either

    • arbyie

      From central NY and I wasn’t a fan of them 50 years ago – to each their own.

    • Stewart Sheffer

      It the best that i’ve tried

    • Brittany

      You from Michigan

  4. Rachel

    My grandmother would make these for me when I was a little girl. Very nostalgic for me.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ah thanks for sharing Rachel!

      • Brittany

        Lina you like Nutella sandwich

  5. Jillian235

    This is such a New England staple! I now live in California and have this shipped to me from Boston or have my family bring it to me when they visit. Most across the US don’t know this greatness.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh funny! Yes, I agree- so GOOD!

    • Louis Katz

      Target doesnt carry Fluff and wont even ship it to my Los Angeles address.

        • Aminaa M.

          Also in No Frills for 2 dollars, got mine from there.

      • Kathren Beckwith

        Michigan we love them .

    • Matt

      What do you mean have them shipped? You cant make a peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich?

  6. brindhaG

    Sounds yummy. Gonna try it as a treat!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum – enjoy!

  7. Cat

    I have not tried this, but it looks yummy! When I was a kid my babysitter made peanut butter & honey sandwiches on white bread. Thanks for sharing. Going to try this with my kiddos.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! Yes, you’ll enjoy these! Thanks Cat!

  8. Christy

    Anybody have a keto version recipe?! 🤣🤣🤣 #icanteatanything

    • Jennifer

      No, but I eat a spoonful of Nutella with a spoonful of marshmallow fluff without the bread for a quick treat and it is delightful.

    • Wren

      Christy 🤣🤣

    • Brittany

      You like nuttela sandwich

  9. ❤️my_lineman

    We love these with chili! Helps to even out the spicy kick of chili perfectly! We also eat them for a snack 😊

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s a cool idea – thanks for sharing!

  10. Amanda

    My kids love these! I also use the fluff in Whoopie pie filling

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I love that idea and will have to try that!

  11. Vicki

    Of course, here, in south coastal Boston, we pronounce it, “fluffanuttah” sandwiches 😉

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha YES! That’s awesome.

  12. Jennifer

    Has anyone tried freezing these? I was thinking I could make up several and freeze them like I do with the homemade uncrustables.

    • Amanda

      I’ve frozen desserts with fluff before so I think it would work

  13. Nikki

    Yes! I introduced my 13 year old niece to these when she visited this summer, and plan to do the same with her 7 year old sister later this week. She loved it and thought it was a great combination.

  14. Steven Lettre

    When I was in my middle teens we would toast the bread. It takes it to a whole new LEVEL. Oozing peanut butter and marshmallow and more intense flavor.

  15. Rebeccaperson

    Don’t forget that Marshmallow Fluff makes the best filling for Whoopie Pies!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YES!!! I want to try that <3

  16. Valerie

    Florida here and we love those sandwiches

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Valerie!

  17. E

    Had no idea this was regional! I grew up eating them and so did all the kids at my school in New England. So good but soooo much sugar! I’ll have to see if I can find it here in the south.

  18. Lauren

    Growing up, my Dad made these for us all the time. Open faced, spread peanut butter on both sides and stick mini marshmallows to one side. Then put them under the broiler. The peanut butter gets warm and the marshmallows puff up and get toasted.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum 😋 thanks for sharing Lauren!

  19. Jenna

    My all-out treat is a Fluffernutternanatella (say that 5x fast 😉 ) PB, fluff, banana, Nutella.

  20. Diana

    OMG! I want one now! Never had before 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      LOL ah you’re gonna love it! – Hope you can make one soon Diana!

  21. Tonya

    Wow! Never heard of this. Sounds fun. West coast – peanut butter and honey. Messy and delicious. When packing lunch for school it was less messy to use peanut butter and powdered sugar or white sugar 😂 Health food 😂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh ha that’s funny 😄

    • Angela V.

      Ditto. Born and raised on the west coast and have never heard of these, but did have PB and honey sandwiches for lunch growing up. 🙂

  22. S Alston

    We were snow skiing in Colorado and started talking to some Canadians at lunch one day. We told them about Fluff and PB sandwiches…they keep looking at us funny and asked us to explain. They laughed and told us “fluff” was their word for fart…lol. 😆 😂😂😂 Fart and PB sandwiches…no wonder they were confused.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh my gosh – that’s funny! Ha

  23. Jane

    I’ve seen recipes in Amish cookbooks where they whip the pb & fluff together to make it a mixed spread! Yum!!!

  24. Robyn

    Oh my gosh these were my favorite food when I was pregnant with my daughter

  25. Jacqueline

    There is even a fluff festival

  26. Amanda

    I’m a born and raised New Englander and now have two kiddos of my own. When we ask them what they want to lunch about 80% of the time it’s Peanut Butter and Fluff. It’s a staple in our house.

    If you want to try something else scrumptious try adding Fluff to your hot chocolate this winter… better than marshmallows hands down!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow yes that does sound great! I will – and thanks Amanda!

  27. Rose

    We love these here in Maine!

  28. Susan

    Wow and yuk! I’m a west coaster and never heard of such a thing!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I had not had them either on the West Coast. We always had peanut butter and honey sandwiches, Susan!

  29. Sarah

    I’m from Louisiana and have never seen this. What a great idea. Will have to try!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Let us know what you think, Sarah!

  30. Melissa

    Is the Kraft “Jet Puffed Marshamallow Cream” the same as “Marshmallow Fluff”?

    • Mei

      Yes, it is the same! New Englander here. 🙂

  31. Ihearthip

    From the South and we call it Nutterfluff. Ohmagoodness. A close cousin is the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich! Ohmagoodness.

  32. shop4mybabies

    when i was in the 8th grade my family and best friends family were both quite poor…her mom worked at a convenience store and got a case of snickers and a case of marshmallow fluff for free as they were near the sell by date. for an entire 3 day weekend, Daphne and I ate nothing but snickers dipped in fluff…to this day i can’t eat either product lol

  33. Bayousmalls

    I am from the deep south and have never been served this concoction of deliciousness! I guess at 47 its never too late!

  34. David Colantuono

    I remember having these peanut butter and fluff sandwiches when I used to go to Maine for vacation. Although I often added homemade jam to them, I also sometimes had them without jam. Both ways were insanely delicious. They went really good with a variety of salty snack foods, including:

    1 – cheese crackers (particularly, Cheez-It crackers)
    2 – potato chips (especially the sour cream & onion flavor)
    3 – pretzels
    4 – Combos (especially the cheddar cheese pretzel flavor)

    Regardless of which snack foods I ate along with these sandwiches, they were all very delicious. I miss those days and, if I had a time machine, I would definitely take it back to those days again.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I forget about Combos! Ha – thanks for sharing your memories David.

  35. Olivia

    These look so good!!!!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes a definite must try💕

  36. Traci

    I’m from Indiana and I remember eating these sandwiches for an after school treat! Good ole days!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes! Yummy – thanks for sharing!

  37. Carole

    Grew up in the sixties on Long Island, New York. We would eat these. Didn’t know that Fluff was even still around.

  38. Chris M.

    Add a large Tablespoon of fluff to a cup of hot cocoa….yummm!!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      That does sound delicious, Chris M.! Thanks for sharing! ☕️🙌

  39. Ty

    Yo I’m from up north CT moved to GA as a Kid ii never knew how or when i ate it but I tried it as an older teenager and instantly instantly remembered the taste from childhood
