PSA: Caramel Marshmallow Fluff Exists And It's Exactly What Your Sweet Potato Casserole Needs
Between current election-induced stress eating and the impending holiday season, it's a big time for sweet eats and guilty pleasures of all sorts. There have been a lot of recently unveiled foods that explore the furthest reaches of culinary decadence, but I think we might just have a new leader.
Specifically, I'm talking about the existence of a caramel-flavored version of Marshmallow Fluff. That's right: the same geniuses who already convinced us to buy a jar of melted down marshmallows have found a way to (somehow) improve on that winning formula. Oh, and it's also gluten-free if that's enough to convince you that this stuff is actually healthy.
According to @Foodiewiththebeasts, an Instagrammer with access to this magical fluff, Caramel Fluff tastes "like marshmallow snickers" when paired with peanut butter. So if it bothers you that a peanut butter and (marshmallow) fluff sandwich somehow doesn't already taste enough like a candy bar, your prayers have been answered.
At this particular time of year, there are many potential uses for Caramel Fluff. If you want to sweeten up a sweet potato casserole this Thanksgiving, for example, consider giving it a hearty spread. Or, you can just change into a full sweatsuit, grab a spoon, and shovel it directly into your mouth. It's really just more efficient that way.
There is a catch, though. For whatever reason, Caramel Fluff isn't widely available in the US, despite the fact that it seems like one of the more American food products in history. You can buy it from at least one European-based "American Market" for a few Euros plus shipping.
So whether you're going to share the joy of Caramel Fluff with whoever shows up for Thanksgiving or shamefully consumes it from the jar on your couch, the opportunity to try this is too good to pass up—even if international shipping is required.
