#2 – GooGoo Clusters
One of the Predators’ new corporate sponsors this season is the maker of a uniquely Nashvillian confection, the GooGoo Cluster. This comes from the GooGoo website’s History page:
In 1912, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville, TN, the world’s first ever combination candy bar was invented. A roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and real milk chocolate; its renegade shape was more difficult to wrap than the conventional rectangular or square shapes of the day. More importantly, this was the first time multiple elements were being mass-produced in a retail confection. Previous to the advent of the Goo Goo Cluster, candy bar manufacturing consisted of bars of only chocolate, only caramel or taffy. The Goo Goo Cluster represented the first time a bar consisted of more than just one principal ingredient.
These would make a great stocking-stuffer, and the good news is that if you’re in the area they have a Store Locator to help you find GooGoo Clusters on the shelf, or if you’re out of town, they are available for ordering online.
