About Goo Goo Cluster
Goo Goo Cluster, The Original Southern Confection was invented in 1912 by Howell Campbell, who developed the world’s first combination candy bar 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 in downtown Nashville where Premium Goo Goos are made by hand daily in full view of visitors. The 4-ounce Premium confection comes in a variety of flavor combinations that rotate frequently, and are sold exclusively at the Goo Goo Shop. Visit googoo.com for more information.
