If you don't know what "fluffernutter" is, you'll know now.
Brighams Inc., a top selling brand of ice cream in New England, claims to have made the world's first Fluffernutter ice cream.
Fluffernutter is simply a combination of peanut butter and marshmallow cream.
It's roots apparently go back a long way. The name itself is actually a registered trademark of Durkee-Mower Co., the company that makes the marshmallow fluff. It's said that fluffernutter sandwiches have been consumed for at least a century, thus spawning the creation of Durkee-Mower for the production of fine marshmallow fluff. Durkee-Mower promotes every October 8th as National Fluffernutter Day.
Brigham's Fluffernutter ice cream is made with Durkee-Mower's very own marshmallow cream, otherwise it just wouldn't be "fluffernutter" would it? I doubt Durkee-Mower would have permitted licensing of its trademark name if it couldn't get in on the action.
The new Fluffernutter ice cream is currently being scooped at all Brigham's locations and are available at grocery stores throughout New England.
