Coincidentally, I see that you have just missed the Boston Fluff
Festival last weekend.

Boston celebrates Marshmallow Fluff  Sept. 27 (UPI) --

Bostonians say there's nothing like their beloved Marshmallow Fluff, a
sugary local confection celebrated during the weekend at the city's
Union Square.
Fans of the treat -- made of corn and sugar syrups, vanilla flavor and
egg white – gathered Saturday in Boston to honor the local favorite at
the annual "What the Fluff?" festival, The Boston Globe reported.

A few years back, when junk food was being banned from Boston school
meals, an attempt was made to ban Fluff as well, on the feeble grounds
that it was 50% sugar. The attempt failed.
