Introducing the Cheerwine® Premium Goo Goo
WRITTEN by BSachan on February 11, 2020
Goo Goo® Cluster and Cheerwine® come together for a Southern Lovefest!
For the first time in their 100+ year legacies, Goo Goo® Cluster and Cheerwine® unite to create a new taste of the South: the Cheerwine Premium Goo Goo. Made by hand at the Goo Goo Shop & Dessert Bar in downtown Nashville, the 4 ounce candy combines the elements of an Original Goo Goo Cluster with the unique cherry taste of the soft drink Cheerwine. Fresh roasted peanuts, Cheerwine® cherry nougat, and Cheerwine caramel are all covered in a rich milk chocolate, creating an irresistible treat.

The Southern Lovefest of the two brands kicks off just in time for Valentine’s Day , with the launch on February 12th. Available exclusively at the Goo Goo Shop & Dessert Bar and online at googoo.com through May 16th, the Premium Goo Goo retails for $8.99.
“We are so excited to partner with another iconic Southern product to bring something very special to our fans,” said Laurie Spradley, Goo Goo’s co-owner and Vice President of Operations. “In creating the flavor, our intention was to highlight the unique flavor of Cheerwine soda in our classic candy, and we’re thrilled with the results!”
“Cheerwine and Goo Goo Cluster are a ‘match made in Southern heaven,’ and both share more than a century-long legacy of delighting generations across the region,” said Joy Harper, Vice President of Marketing for Cheerwine and fifth-generation founding family member. “Whether you’re a Cheerwine or Goo Goo fan – or both – we can’t wait until you try the ‘perfect union’ of the two brands in this new delicious cherry chocolate treat.”
During the month of February, Goo Goo Cluster and Cheerwine will give away several prize packages, details of which will be announced on their respective social media channels.
Goo Goo® Cluster: America’s First Combination Candy Bar
In 1912, in a copper kettle at Standard Candy Company in Nashville, Tennessee, America’s first combination candy bar was born. The Original Goo Goo Cluster is a roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts, and real milk chocolate. Today, the Goo Goo® Cluster is also available in two additional varieties: Pecan and Peanut Butter. Still family owned and operated, the brand expanded beyond manufacturing in 2014 with the opening of their flagship Goo Goo Shop & Dessert Bar located in downtown Nashville.

Cheerwine®: Uniquely Southern
Created in 1917 by L.D. Peeler, Cheerwine® is a one-of-a-kind soft drink with a unique cherry flavor. It is an iconic brand from Salisbury, North Carolina. Owned by the Carolina Beverage Corporation, the 103-year-old company is still privately owned and managed by the same founding family, five generations of whom have worked there. Cliff Ritchie leads Cheerwine as president and CEO. Available in supermarkets, restaurants, mass merchandisers and convenience stores in select states nationwide and cheerwine.com.
