Last year I had plans to head to Boston for a shirt event and I wanted to create an exclusive design for that event. I already had an idea for a Sandwich City shirt, Fluffah Nuttah, and I knew I also wanted to work with a new artist for this design.The event ended up being cancelled, but I knew I still wanted to make it happen.
I asked one of my favorite artists, Regan Smith Clarke, from Boston to work on this design. I really like Regan’s vintage style (I own some of his designs) and thought he would be a great person to work with. I love what we came up with for Liberty Sandwich. I look forward to working with Regan again on some more Deli Fresh Threads designs.
So what’s a Liberty Sandwich? During World War I, Emma Curtis of Snowflake Marshmallow Creme published a recipe for the Liberty Sandwich, which consisted of peanut butter and Marshmallow Creme on oat or barley bread. The recipe was published in a promotional booklet sent out in 1918. It wasn’t until 1960 that the Liberty Sandwich was called the Fluffernutter sandwich.
The Fluffernutter is the official unofficial state sandwich of Massachusetts.
