Lost in Translation – the German edition

We’ve been enjoying lots of different foods while we’ve been in Germany.  Of course, the apple strudel and bratwurst like you would expect… but like any good overseas dwellers, we’ve gotten more excited about the most random things.  Blueberries!  Raspberries!  Lunch meat!  Tortellini!

And this:

If my high school German is serving me well, the description of this fluffy goodness says “Marshmallow fluff is the typical American spread for bread for big and small (people)….” and then goes on to give instructions on how to make “the most popular sandwich in the USA!” which apparently is peanut butter and marshmallow fluff.

I’ve never actually had a fluffernutter sandwich before.  Marshmallow creme was always reserved for fudge and Rice Krispie treats.  But of course, we had to try this “American treat” and although it isn’t actually the most popular sandwich in the USA (unless I’m missing something?  Maybe we’ve been out of the States too long and missed the rise of the fluffernutter sandwich??)… it is quite delectable.

Who would have guessed we would discover a typical American treat while vacationing in Germany!?!

  1. I understand that the Amish like that sort of sandwich, but it certainly was not something I ever heard of in my first 50+ years, which means that it was not typical in California. :-)

  2. I´ve never tried Marshmallow fluff. I did not know it is the typical American spread for bread for big and small (people)… to make “the most popular sandwich in the USA!” I do not like peanut..!
