Goo Goo Clusters Jog n Hog


Lately, and in the weeks to come, you guys may notice that I’m not posting as much here on the blog or spending too much time on Twitter. The reason? I’m all wrapped up in prep work for the big 100th anniversary celebration of Goo Goo Cluster in October!

There are going to be lots of fun happenings and events to commemorate the centennial, all of which I’ll be telling you about in due time.

Today, it’s the Goo Goo Clusters Jog n Hog!

Run, eat, run. Or jog, munch, jog. Or heck, even — walk, nibble, walk. We don’t care how you do it, we just want you to have fun while you’re doing it!

Here’s how it works: Runners will jog 1.5 miles through Shelby Park, stop at the eating station for a bag of 6 Goo Goo Clusters, and then jog 1.5 miles back to the starting line. I know what you’re thinking – 6 Goo Goo Clusters????

Of course, I’m hoping we’ll discover the next Sonya Thomas or Takeru Kobayashi, but for all the rest of you, there is no need to worry, no one is going to be force feeding clusters into your mouth! You can finish as many or few as you like. Again, it’s all in fun!
