Fluffernutter: The most popular sandwich in the USA!

This was too funny to keep to myself. While I was shopping at Penny Markt the other day, I saw that they had jars of marshmallow fluff in stock.
I was like "Oh, cool! I can make some fudge!" so I looked on the back for a recipe and found this fallacy of a marketing pitch:
"Fluffernutter: you can't get more American than that! The most popular sandwich in the USA! Spread a slice of white bread with marshmallow fluff, a second slice with peanut butter and then smack the two slices together. Your fluffernutter is complete."

I literally laughed out loud when I read that. I have never heard of such a sandwich. Am I an exception? Am I even American? Would anyone agree that Peanut Butter and Jelly is more popular by far than the fluffernutter?

This is the kind of stuff people get away with saying about the USA.
