Marshmellow creme VS. Fluff?

Is this the same stuff? I'm not a big Fluff eater but I do know that I use the Kraft Marshmellow Creme when I make fudge for the holidays.

Was just making a mental note of things that I need to pick up at the store for some holiday baking. I have a couple containers of Fluff but not Kraft Marshmellow Creme. Is this stuff interchangable?

I seldom use Marshmallow Cream, usually I use Fluff since it is less expensive. I believe they are interchangeable.

Marshmallow creme = tissue
Marshmallow Fluff = Kleenex

That's what it is. Creme is generic, Fluff is a brand name.

It's a regional brand, sold in the north east, not like Kraft or Jet Puffed where are national brands.

I live in the North East. Until Walmart came to town about 15 years ago, I never knew that any other brand besides Fluff existed

I had no idea it was a thing at all until I moved to the north east! lol I was about 16 when we moved and I remember the little girls I babysat for eating it. Then my mom eventually having it in the house for her boyfriend.

So, since I am not a fan of marshmallow cream I have to ask, is it better for fudge than marshmallows? I just use marshmallows for mine.

it's the same. I never had a peanut butter and fluff sandwich, until I married a man from CT. I still don't get it. It's like a dessert, but for lunch? Here in CA, we use Marshmellow cream to make fudge and I can't think of another reason to buy it!

It's not necessarily better, just different. The Fluff (or creme if you prefer) incorporates itself into the fudge and gives it a different, creamier texture. The marshmallows always have little pieces left in the fudge, even if you try to melt them before putting them in.

That is funny. Until Walmart came to town, I had never seen Fluff in person. But they only had it here briefly, it was next to the national brands. Now we just buy the Great Value Marshmallow creme, DW makes fudge with it.

Fluff is better tasting, if you ask me. I don't think you could tell while baking with it, just if you were eating a fluff and nutter or just eating it alone.
