“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” ― Charles M. Schulz It is only appropriate that we kick of the month of February, the month of love and chocolate, with a wedding story, don’t ya think? Bride & Groom:  Jacklyn and Ben McGlothlin Date of Wedding: October 13, 2012 Location of Wedding/Reception: “Both the wedding and reception were at Front Porch Farms, about 20 minutes outside of Nashville in Ashland City.  We were so lucky to be able to get married and party the night away with close friends and family outside overlooking the rolling hills on a gorgeous fall Tennessee night.” ~ Jacklyn On having Goo Goo Clusters as part of the big day: “Both Ben and I are Belmont grads and called Nashville home for many years.  Although our career paths have taken us away from the city we both love, when we got engaged, we knew precisely where we wanted our life together to begin: Nashville.  We wanted to share the city we love so much with those we love. While planning the wedding, we made a point to stay local and really showcase the best of the city and why we love it.  So when it came to choosing party favors, we knew exactly what we wanted: Goo Goos.  Not only were the people at Goo Goo great to work with (which is always a plus for a busy bride-to-be), but they were a HUGE hit! They may not […]

Wow! I remember eating Goo Goos from as long as I was allowed to go to the store by myself. I would walk to the corner store and buy them. They were were either five or ten cents then. I would eat them at least 2-3 times a week. You could say I was addicted to them. At that time they were only here in middle Tennessee, which as I got older made me feel like we had a secret and the whole world was not in on it. I joined the Army in 1981, and my first duty station was in Texas, I would buy Goo Goos by the case and take them with me there. People would ask "what is that ?" And proudly I would say "Its a Goo Goo, you can only get them in Tennessee" I shared them and was known in my barracks as the Goo Goo guy. When I was assigned to Germany, in 1983, I used to have my mom send Goo Goos as part of my care package from home. As it turned out, my company commander was from Nashville and he appreciated that I would share "a bit of home" with him. As the years passed, I still enjoy Goo Goos, even getting them for my employees when I was a manager for Krispy Kreme. I would get them by the case and had them out for Christmas presents. I’m in my 50’s now and still enjoy a fresh Goo […]

Uhhhmmmm just had my first GooGoo in about 2 years, so sweet and soft ….. oh how I missed them 🙂 While living in Nashville as en exchange student in the early ’90, GooGoo’s became my favorite candy. Moving back to Denmark, I had to kick my "one GooGoo a day" habit, and limit myself to the care-packages sent by good friends, and what I could bring back when visiting Nashville. So just wanted to let you know that you have a big fan in Denmark, who loves your product …..and who just recieved 20 GooGoo’s, which will keep him happy over Christmas. Merry Christmas to every one at Standard Candy Co. Rasmus Berthelsen — Rasmus Berthelsen facebook twitter pinterest google+

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!
