BOSTON (AP) — A bill that would make the fluffernutter Massachusetts’ official sandwich has been given initial approval by state lawmakers.
The measure was advanced Tuesday on a voice vote during an informal session of the House of Representatives.
The fluffernutter — peanut butter and Marshmallow Fluff on bread — has remained a popular treat in New England for generations.
Marshmallow Fluff was invented in 1917 in Somerville and is made with just four ingredients — corn syrup, sugar syrup, dried egg whites and artificial vanilla flavoring. It’s still made in a small manufacturing plant in Lynn.
The bill still needs another vote of the House before going to the Senate. It was filed by former state Rep. Kathi-Anne Reinstein of Revere.
