A Goo Goo Break in Athens GA
WRITTEN by BSachan on August 29, 2013
Earlier this month we traveled down to Athens, Georgia for the fabulous Southern C Summit, a forum for Southern bloggers, businesses, and brands.
As a sponsor of this incredible event, we were responsible for hosting the afternoon break for all attendees. You know that time of day when you hit a slump? A couple of hours after lunch when you need a pick-me-up to get you through the rest of the day? Yep. That time.
What better way to wake a person up than feed them a Goo Goo?! Well, we took it a step further by teaming up with the amazing folks at Epting Events. We wanted them to create a dessert for us using Goo Goo Clusters. Simple enough. A cookie, a pie, a brownie – whatever they wanted to do, we were open.
Well, how astounded were we when they came up with not one, not two, but NINE (yes 9!) incredible dishes?!? And there weren’t just desserts, they also incorporated Goo Goos into savory bites: a Pork Slider with Goo Goo Mole Sauce, Country Ham Biscuit with Goo Goo Cluster Crumble and Chocolate-Dipped Bacon with a Crunchy Goo Goo Cluster Coating.
The sweets were: Empanadas with a Goo Goo Cluster Filling, a Goo Goo Cluster Cannoli, Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries with a Crunchy Goo Goo Cluster Coating, Goo Goo Cluster Shortbread, Goo Goo Cluster Caramel Popcorn, and even a Bourbon Goo Goo Cluster Milkshake.
Thank you Epting Events for going above and beyond in coming up with some truly outstanding Goo Goo creations!
