A Treasure Found
WRITTEN by GAdmin on December 27, 2012
I can’t believe I have found you again!!
I am a mom of 3 girls, and was looking for something other than the generic boring re-packaged Christmas candies for stocking stuffers (snickers in a green wrapping – yeah, that’s special!) when I stumbled upon my old childhood delight at the World Market – my beloved Goo Goo Clusters!
I am a native Washingtonian, but spent my childhood summers visiting my only uncle in Nashville. I have so many memories associated with Goo Goo Clusters – Uncle Mo and his player piano ("Heart of my Heart"), Opryland, and well, Nashville!!
I could not believe it when I was shopping at the World Market (which specializes in exotic European items) and spy a box of simply wrapped, totally treasured …..Goo Goo Clusters.
I unwrapped one of these treasures not knowing if my childhood memories would ever measure up to reality, thinking that this candy was only great in my imagination….but lo and behold, you are better than I remember! I think that every candy and candy company will never find the perfect blend that is a Goo Goo Cluster. Snickers, Milky Way and Mars Bars are incomplete versions of my beloved Goo Goo Cluster.
Thanks so much for sticking around and not giving up to the bigger candy companies.
I plan to spread the word to my friends and share this little treasure……….what a great Christmas!
