Hi, um.... yeah, looking for that great New England concoction known as Marshmallow Fluff. Or any comparable marshmallow creme product, really. No luck at my nearest Metro or dodgy 4 Freres (surprise, surprise). No luck either at the Loblaws at Jean-Talon and Parc. Gourmands only need reply. Many thanks.
The Loblaws on St. Jacques had tons of "Marshmallow Creme" in the aisle with ice cream cones and chocolate sauces when I was there today.
The kosher grocery in Wilderton Shopping Centre had not just one, but several brands when I was last there (around Christmastime).

Thank you all! And thanks, fedelst1, for the offer of the guaranteed real deal from south of the border. As per maisonbistro's reports from IGA, I called the location closest to me and they do indeed stock Marshmallow Fluff brand. The grocery manager had me on the phone for a few minutes, waxing reflective as to how he had no choice but to carry it in the store, because his "blonde" is addicted to the stuff.
I have this fudge recipe in mind that I would like to try, and marshmallow creme plays a key role in the alleged addictive qualitites of said fudge. Fedelst1, I will keep you posted if I must have a jar of the American original. Ah, cross-border food shopping - such fun!
