In Love with Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters

WRITTEN by GAdmin on November 18, 2012

I tried Goo Goo Clusters for the first time yesterday at the Chicago Chocolate Show and totally fell in the love with the peanut butter cluster! They are way better than a Reese’s, since you have the crunch from the peanuts along with the super smooth peanut butter filling coated in chocolate.

At the show, there were so many fancy artisan truffles, with flavors like merlot or honey whiskey. There was vegan chocolate, chocolate gelato, brownies, cake pops, eclairs and toffee. Both Valrhona and Barry Callebaut had stands and professional chocolatiers were making sculptures. I ate far too much chocolate and actually had a tummy ache by the time I left, but I think the best thing I ate all day were your humble Goo Goo Clusters. I’ll definitely be looking for them in stores near me next time I’m craving something sweet!

    I’m a child of the 80s, which means I mostly remember the early nineties when I think of my childhood. During the late 80s and early 90s, there was a candy bar called the PBMax. I can only barely recall the taste of it now, but I distinctly remember it as the most delicious candy bar ever made.

    It was sadly discontinued after only a few years of production, and ever since I have been hoping it would be brought back.

    Little did I know that something was already there to step up to the plate and take its rightful place as chocolate-peanut-butter royalty.

    The Peanut Butter Goo Goo Cluster is, quite simply, the most delicious peanut butter and chocolate treat which is widely available in today’s world. The vaunted peanut butter cup – rightly praised as a tasty morsel – simply cannot compare.

    If you, like me, have been craving the PBMax bar ever since its discontinuation in the early to mid 90s, look no further than the Peanut Butter Goo Goo Cluster. There is a slight difference but it’s the closest thing I’ve ever tasted and it’s quite possible the nostalgia factor (and the fact that candy undoubtedly tastes better to a young boy than a grown man) are clouding my judgment.

    Regardless of how it would actually measure up to the PBMax in a blind, time-traveling taste test, the point is moot. We have found our new PB/Chocolate King! The PBMax is dead, long live the Peanut Butter Goo Goo Cluster!
