Three Nashville Icons Join Forces On A New Goo Goo: Andy's Candy Image

Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, Goo Goo Cluster, and Old Hickory Bourbon of Nashville have joined forces and ingredients, collaborating on a new limited-edition Premium Goo Goo flavor called Andy’s Candy. The new Goo Goo confection drew inspiration from the personal tastes of the seventh president. It combines dark chocolate, Old Hickory Bourbon caramel, brown sugar nougat, pecans, and an orange ganache for “one history-making flavor,” according to the description on the back of each box.

“Collaborating with icons like Goo Goo and Old Hickory Bourbon gave us the chance to do something not previously done – creating an Andrew Jackson-inspired candy,” said Howard J. Kittell, president and CEO of the Andrew Jackson Foundation. “This candy brings together a unique flavor combination and serves as a nod to a few Tennessee legends. The Hermitage is proud to be a part of this history-making candy, and we are excited to roll it out to the public.”

A limited-edition run of 3,000 boxes is now available for purchase from two locations: The Museum Store at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage (4580 Rachel’s Lane, Hermitage, Tenn.) and the Goo Goo Shop and Dessert Bar (116 Third Ave. S) in downtown Nashville. Production of the candy will continue based on demand. 

“We are excited to team up with our friends at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage and Old Hickory Bourbon to bring to life this new confection that celebrates the rich history of our state,” said Laurie Spradley, Director of Brand Development for Goo Goo Cluster. “We had so much fun brainstorming with The Hermitage and Old Hickory Bourbon about the various flavors that went into the final product.”

      We agree! The ingredient list for this limited time Goo Goo prevents us from being able to ship from Tennessee, otherwise we'd totally have it available for sale online.

        Hiya Judy - the fun thing about our Bring Back That Candy competition is that (fingers crossed) your favorite from last year could make it back into production this summer! Watch our socials for the 2018 batch; right now the 2016 chefs are facing off:

      I agree. Wish we can order this and others that are at the shop. My wife went here last year for me. I remember when I was little I got a Goo Goo from a candy store at an old 5 and 10. Wish I lived closer.

    Andy's Candy sounds interesting. We will be in Nashville in a week. We will be visiting the shop in hopes to buy a box this product to add to our collection of Goo Goo Clusters (Original, Pecan and Peanut Butter ) from cases we've purchased after our visit last fall to share with our Pennsylvania family and friends.
