I was in my early twenties and working for Capitol/EMI at the New York office in their Promotion Dept. In 1980, we had a new British band named Kajagoogoo and someone at the record company used the Goo Goo Cluster as part of a promotion for the band. We had a substantial shipment sent directly from the factory to New York to use as giveaways for an appearance by the band.
Despite the fact that I had lived in South Carolina in the mid 1970s and made frequent trips to Eastern Tennessee, I had never gotten the opportunity to try a Goo Goo Cluster. Well, when the promotion director brought in a few boxes just for us and I got my first taste of a fresh one …. WOW!
I think I snuck about 10 of them out of my office to take home! Without question, they are the most delicious candy I have ever tasted!
