I went to the shop today to buy some food and other stuff. And there was some new stuff e.g. marshmallow fluff http://beachpackagingdesign.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/11/04/fluff.jpg

I have never heard of that before. Where can it be used?

Fluff is not new at all :haha: It's very gooey and sticky and personally i'm not a fan of it, but it is used for sandwiches and other things, especially the "Fluffer-nutter" sandwich which is peanut butter and fluff :P Enjoy

If you're still looking for new stuff to try, try Maple Butter! :D It's so sweet and delicious, I often enjoy it on an english muffin :D the only problem is it gets hard because you have to keep it in the fridge which makes it impossible to spread on toast :(

Maybe it's not new to you but to me it is, I have never seen it before. And I am sure those things haven't been in that shop before. There were also some other new (U.S.?) stuff, I can't even remember what.

Anyway, I think I'll leave the fluff in that shop, doesn't sound so good. Although I like marshmallows.

Thanx for the info :)

Actually it is also used in alot of recipes to make the mixture lighter:) there are things like fudge and well it is easier to use this in rice crispie squares than regualr marshmellows

We carry a different brand in my area, but it's the same general idea. People here usually use it in sundaes. :lala: Just a little, not loads, but it's quite good. And yes, as Funja mentioned, a lot of people use that instead of melting marshmallows to create Rice Krispie treats. :D

I'm a fan of fluff, because it's a vegetarian alternative to marshmallows. i can still have my s'mores! (Minus the campfire, unfortunately)

I can't find the real Fluff. I see Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Cream from Kraft but am told that is not the real deal. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.candypirate.com/ekmps/shops/candypirate/images/jet.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.candypirate.com/kraft-jet-puffed-marshmallow-creme---196g---short-dated-22nd-sept-665-p.asp&usg=__CZo0kK86ZOL_a2ix5mQIkHxWcgg=&h=532&w=369&sz=259&hl=en&start=1&tbnid=uX7IqxNtVoc1PM:&tbnh=132&tbnw=92&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dkraft%2Bmarshmallow%2Bcream%26gbv%3D2 %26hl%3Den

Many years ago at a bank party a lady brought a bunch of sliced apples with a really good dip. It was one part cream cheese and one part marshmallow cream whipped together. Easy peasy to make and really tasty if you want to add calories to your otherwise healthy apple.

Nope no fluffy stuff here either :D Though the apple dip sounds good.. Like a cheesecake dip!

Rice crispie squares? Those I could try... That dip sounds good, too :) Maybe I could buy a jar of it and give it a try...

Absolutely LOVED them as a kid (not sure I would now).

You've tried it already?

I will wager the jar is in the rubbish bin and 3 more have been ordered from Ebay :D

I love eating that stuff on snow cones and ice cream.

Lausco
07-18-2009, 01:08:03
:rofl-smilie: You are not far from the truth there RBS :haha:

@ Bronwyn Yes, I couldn't believe it arrived today I thought it would be Monday, they will be getting all their stars on ebay :D Just not sure where to keep it (fridge or cupboard) it doesn't say on the label, anyone any suggestions?

@ jack, I totally didn't think of that, I have eaten it there too from the icecream vans. It was mad when I tasted it I realised I had eaten it before but just not out of a jar.

Fluffernutter here I come :D

"Because of the sanitary environment and practices it is not necessary to refrigerate Marshmallow Fluff even though it still contains no preservative of any kind."

Thanks Crimson. I have got to find the stuff now. Gonna ask the Kroger manager next time in. My absolute favorite Christmas treat is divinity but in the Houston humidity it never came out very fluffy at our house. I have seen it done perfectly down here so I know it is possible. Maybe this is the secret weapon.

Lausco

Thanks Crimson :D Yum yum yum :D

@RBS what is divinity??

Crimsonthread
07-18-2009, 03:47:49
Davinity is kind of a white nougat candy. Yum yum!

RBS--I've seen the Fluff at my local Krogar... pretty sure it was by the regular marshmallows (baking aisle, maybe?).

funja
07-18-2009, 05:35:31
lol i have seen this in my local cupboard hundereds of times lol i have no idea where we buy it i think my small town grocery store carries it :) yep thats it well one of them we have like less than 1000 people in my town but we have 2 grocery stores lol :P i have no idea why lol.

well i hope everyone who gets it is happy i love the stuff i still dont know what my mom uses it for i got half the memory in my had i asked my dad why mom had marshmellow fluff and he said she was making......dang i cant remember :(

My wife can make Divinity & a couple of other sinfully sweet stomach stuffers with Marshmallow Cream,as we call it here.

Good thing she don't make 'em too often :D

Would marshmallow fluff be good on top of cupcakes/muffins?

That flutternutter doesn't so good to me. I just can't believe that the combination of marshmallow and peanut butter could be good! But I don't like peanut butter so no wonder I can't see that combination very tasty.

Lausco
07-18-2009, 10:56:57
I think that would be nice, I would eat them if you made them :)

I do like peanut butter, not sure how it would taste though but I will try anything once :)

I'm also a fan of the buzzernutter and the nannernutter. :haha: And on rare occasions, the picklenutter. :haha:

I don't get it Crimson, what's in a marshmallow that would make it something a vegetarian couldn't eat?

Answered my own question, there's gelatin in marshmallows. Gelatin: A colorless or slightly yellow, transparent, brittle protein formed by boiling the specially prepared skin, bones, and connective tissue of animals and used in foods, drugs, and photographic film.

O, btw, I always ate a fluffernutter as a kid with peanut butter, fluff AND jelly! (Always had to have the jelly too!)

Stitchy - I think there's gelatin in regular marshmallows (Unless that's what your talking about in the answered my own question thing :P)
And apparently Gelatin is pig fat, tendons and ligaments :S

Crimsonthread
07-19-2009, 02:03:38
Even if I wasn't a vegetarian, the idea of geletin and where it comes from would gross me out.

It's also in Jello, gummy worms, Starburst, Skittles, yogurt, and most gelcap medicines.

stitchy
07-19-2009, 02:23:00
Oh, well, most of what we eat it pretty gross. Gelatin or not, we all eat an average of 1 pound of bugs from our food every year, so Crimson, you are getting some animal protein in your diet, like it or not!

:sick::o

Heartofthedark
07-19-2009, 02:35:54
Another gross thing about food :P: Carmine, a red dye used in strawberry yogurt and other things like milkshakes is actually a ground up bug that gets its red color from the red berries it eats :P

Crimsonthread
07-19-2009, 02:48:27
:) I understand that, Stitchy. I choose not to eat animals, but I can't do anything about things I have no choice over. :P

stitchy
07-19-2009, 03:36:24
i know, it's gross, none of us want to eat the pound of bugs...or at least, most of us!! :)

Bronwyn
07-19-2009, 09:33:28
I think that would be nice, I would eat them if you made them :)
Maybe I'll try to do fluff-covered muffins (well, actually there's not much trying, just bake the muffins and cover them with fluff) :) Not yet, though, as I made strawberry tart yesterday. But maybe next weekend.
