Gaga for Goo Goo Clusters

If you have never eaten a Goo Goo Cluster you don’t know what you are missing.  They are made with milk chocolate, caramel, marshmallow nougat, and fresh roasted peanuts. They originated in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1900s and these little treats are a must for anyone who visits Music City.

Recently I told you about the BAM Conference (Bloggers at Midlife) in Nashville. One of the ladies who was with our group mentioned she knew someone who might be able to get us some of them to give to attendees. She made a few phone calls and pretty soon our hotel room was full of the little chocolate temptations. We kept them in our room until time to pass them out at the conference. Keeping chocolate in a room where I am staying is not a good idea. I am absolutely gaga for Goo Goo Clusters.

I ate them for breakfast, snacked on them during the conference and then when it came time to leave Nashville I made sure I tossed a few handfuls in my bag. I have 5 grandchildren and what could make a nana more popular than a secret stash of Goo Goo Clusters?

Pam Lutrell loves Goo Goo Clusters too!

This lovely lady is Pamela Lutrell and her blog is Over 50 Feeling 40. She assured me she’s a fan of Goo Goo Clusters too. Pamela is a fashion blogger and has a great post about the conference called, “I Matter.” If you visit her blog be sure and tell her NanaHood said, “Hello.”

The Only Bad Thing About Goo Goo Clusters

There is one thing you might want to know about this candy in case you have children or grandchildren who like Goo Goo Clusters. If you let a toddler eat them unsupervised while riding in your car you might have a mess on your hands by the time you arrive at your destination.

If you haven’t had a Goo Goo Cluster I highly recommend them…just not in the car.
