Shakespeare wrote “a fluff called by any name would still taste delicious.”

Well, the bard might have written that if he had tried the Sweet Potato Fluff at Pruett’s BBQ in Gadsden.

Customers come in to order the family recipe of sweet potatoes, marshmallows, crunchy topping and other ingredients. However, they don’t always call it by the name on the menu.

“The names it gets called it’s so funny, we get tickled,” said Manager Cindy Pruett King. “’I need that sweet potato puff, sweet potato casserole’ … it’s gotten more names but we always know what they’re talking about.”
