Upon learning of my vacation plans to the Seattle area, David Wahl, the Director of Awesome for pop culture behemoth Archie McPhee, took no time extending a invitation to me to visit their retail store in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood for a behind-the-scenes tour. I, already a big fan of their offbeat wares, took no time accepting the invitation. As plans firmed up, what started as a tour ended up in us planning a fabulous event where I served the quintessential East coast sandwich treat, Fluffernutters, to their customers. David filmed the event and made the wonderful video where I, in part, give instructions on how to make the perfect Fluffernutter.
For the uninitiated, a Fluffernutter is a sandwich made with Marshmallow Fluff, peanut butter and soft white bread. For years, it was only available on the East coast and now it’s finally made its way to the West coast.
Here are a few photos from the event:
Handerpants are the perfect accessory for serving Fluffernutters.
Some folks from the local neighborhood blog, Wallyhood, paid a visit and sampled the goods.

I felt right at home surrounded by a bathtub full of Finger Tentacles.
Here is a humorous “death by The Fluff” video that Cap’n Dan’l of the Archie McPhee store made shortly after the event:
Thanks to everyone at Archie Mcphee that made me feel so welcome. The Fluffernutter day was a great success and was most definitely an Endless Geyser of Awesome!
