About Goo Goo Cluster
The Original Goo Goo Cluster, America’s first combination candy bar, was invented in 1912 by Howell Campbell, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville. The unique confection is a roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and real milk chocolate. Today, the Goo Goo Cluster is also available in two additional varieties: Supreme, with pecans instead of peanuts, and Peanut Butter.
In 2014, Goo Goo Cluster, LLC opened the Goo Goo Shop, its flagship store located at 116 3rd Ave S in downtown Nashville. Visit googoo.com for more information.
About Belle Meade Winery
As the premier thoroughbred racing and breeding farm in the South for over a century, Belle Meade Plantation was the center of hospitality in the 1800s. Five United States presidents have enjoyed the renowned hospitality of the Harding and Jackson families, and the 5,400 acres that made up the Plantation were home to some of the greatest horses in racing history. The Plantation’s hospitality always included homemade wine, with the use of its many wild and domestic grapevines. In November 2009, the opening of The Winery at Belle Meade Planation ensured the long tradition of hospitality would continue. Today the Plantation is open seven days a week for visitors, and the historic mansion is open for guided tours.
