Goo Goo Cluster

Goo Goo Cluster

  Creamy milk chocolate, roasted peanuts, gooey caramel and marshmallow nougat, a true “Southern Treat” as the company puts it. The Goo Goo cluster revolutionized candy bars as we know them, it was one of the first candies that consisted of more then one principal ingredient! This delicious candy was first produced in 1912, in Nashville, TN at Standard Candy Company in a copper kettle.  The name for the Goo Goo cluster comes from the idea that “Goo goo” is the first words a baby tries to speak, so, “It’s so good, people will ask for it from birth!”   What makes this candy interesting is not only where its ingredients combination really un heard of for one candy bar, but also its shape. Goo Goo clusters are circular in a time where square and rectangle candies were the norm. Due to their round shape Goo Goo clusters where first shown un wrapped and had to be displayed under a glass dome in stores, soon after that women in the factory would hand wrap each Goo Goo cluster until eventually machinery took over. At Standard Candy in Nashville today they can produce 20,000 Goo Goo clusters in an hour!
