Dessert Dates for Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day drawing near, we at the Goo Goo shop thought it would be fun to do something extra sweet for you and your sweetheart. But this special treat doesn’t come in the form of a heart-shaped box, filled with lots of chocolate goodies. No, this something-special is an adventure for you and your loved one to share – and hopefully a memory you can hold in your hearts for years to come!

On Tuesday, February 14th, the Goo Goo Shop Dessert is offering $10 Dessert Dates*. You and your valentine will each receive either a fountain drink or hot cup of coffee and can choose from the following desserts to share:

Clark Street Original Cheesecake
Cumberland Ridge Pecan Pie
3rd Avenue Heartache Cake

Honky Tonk Blonde Sundae

We hope to see you and your sweetie on Valentine’s Day!

Now at the Dessert Bar: Hot Chocolate!

With chilly temps and shorter days, we at Goo Goo know that sometimes you need a sweet treat to get yourself through the winter. And while Goo Goo clusters are often just the ticket to give you that little lift, we think a Goo Goo Hot Chocolate proves to be even better — which is why we’re now offering hot chocolate at the Goo Goo Shop Dessert Bar!

Unlike regular ol’ hot chocolate, our warm mugs of cocoa are spruced up just enough to make this quintessential wintry drink something you can’t resist.

Closest to a traditional hot chocolate, our Chocolaty Hot Chocolate is made with our house made hot fudge and topped with marshmallows and whipped cream. Perfect for the season, our Peppermint Hot Chocolate is topped with whipped cream and peppermint shavings and served with a peppermint stick on side. And the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate has already proved to be the most wonderful blend of salty and sweet, made with our house made salted caramel, and topped with whipped cream and another drizzle of salted caramel.

Due to the shorter days that come with colder weather, the Goo Goo Shop & Goo Goo Dessert Bar do have shorter hours (11am – 6pm Sunday – Thursday, and 11am – 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays) so be sure to stop by before it’s too late. We can’t wait to warm up with you this season.
