For the past couple of years I’ve enjoyed playing along with Garden and Gun’s Ultimate Southern Food Bracket that runs in conjunction with March Madness. Admittedly, I don’t always agree with the outcome, but hey, it’s all in good fun!

This year I’m even more pumped than ever for the games to begin. Why? Because this time around the bracket is taking the theme of The Battle of the Brands, and Nashville’s very own Goo Goo Cluster is part of the competition!

I think probably 98% of you know this already, but just in case there are a few reading this that aren’t aware – I’m the Director of Marketing for Goo Goo. So you could say that the stakes are much higher for me this year. Sure, win or lose, it’s an honor to just be a part of it, but hey, I’m not gonna lie: I want Goo Goo to win!!

Here’s how the whole things works:

Bracket begins March 19th and ends with the final on April 10th

The public will cast their votes for iconic Southern food brands in the following categories: Sweets, Snacks, Sodas and Pantry Items.

The site dedicated to the bracket:

Round 1: March 19-22 – All brands are pitted against each other. Goo Goo Cluster will begin in the Sweets category, up against another Sweet brand. VOTE DAILY!

Round 2:  March 23-30 – A winner is announced at the end of the week

Round 3:  March 31 – April 3 – A winner is announced at the end of the week

Final Four:  April 4-7 – A winner is announced at the end of the week.

Final: April 8 – 10 – The WINNER is announced April 10!


So what do you say? Let’s show the world (or at least the rest of the South) what Nashville’s got. Let’s pull together and help our little hometown brand advance through this bracket! Vote for Goo Goo Cluster!
