American Products- European Marketing

June 26, 2013

Twice a year before the 4th of July and Thanksgiving Aldi begins stocking up on their version of American food. Often they include ‘real’ American brands.

Last week I got the insider info that Aldi was stocking Libby’s canned pumpkin!!!!

Of course I ran straight over to stock up. Do you have any idea how much weight and space this will free up in my suitcase this summer. It will mean more Ranch dressing!!!!

Imagine my delight to find not only pumpkin but Fluff too!!! I’m not sure Fluff is even available all over the US. But being a NYer i grew up on Fluffernutter sandwiches and hot cocoa with a big dollop of Fluff on top.

On the way home it occurred to me….so what if it’s the middle of summer….there is no greater fudge recipe than the “Never Fail Fudge” recipe on the back of the Fluff container. Yep Princess M and I were going to make fudge.

To my disappointment there was no recipe on the back. OK no biggie that’s what google is for. However, on closer inspection I was SHOCKED at the serving suggestions on the back…

SCONES?!?!?! with Fluff?!?! It just seems WRONG…on so many levels.
Ruins the scone.
Ruins the Fluff.
