Fluffernutter Wars! Fluffernutter sandwich angers Mass. senator
Sen. Jarrett Barrios was outraged that his son Nathaniel, a third-grader, was given a Fluffernutter sandwich at the King Open School in Cambridge. He said he plans to file legislation that would ban schools from offering the local delicacy more than once a week as the main meal of the day. The Democrat said that his amendment to a bill on junk food in schools may seem "a little silly" — but that school nutrition is serious.Bloggie stands behind you all the way, Ms. Reinstein. Don't mess with our Fluffernutters, infidels!
His proposal seemed anything but silly to Rep. Kathi-Anne Reinstein, a Democrat whose district in Revere is near the company that has produced the marshmallow concoction for more than 80 years, Durkee-Mower Inc. She responded with a proposal to designate the Fluffernutter the "official sandwich of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts."
"I'm going to fight to the death for Fluff," Reinstein said.
