Meet the Younger Goo Goos: Supreme and Peanut Butter


I may be stating the obvious, but in case you missed the news, Nashville’s own Goo Goo Cluster Original is turning 100 years young in 2012. In fact, October is the official celebration month!

If you’ve read my bio, then you already know I’m the Senior Marketing Manager for Goo Goo Cluster. For the past few months I’ve been completely immersed in planning events, activities, and giveaways to ensure that the centennial is a Goo-Gantuan success!

But, like any good mom, I want to make sure the younger siblings are never left out.

The Goo Goo Supreme, born in 1982, lives up to its name by featuring fancy pecans. While the Peanut Butter Goo Goo, born in 1991, is the rambunctious baby of the family and has the irresistible combo of real milk chocolate, peanut butter, and peanuts. And, oh yeah, both share the Original’s inherent Southern Sass!

While these younger flavors may not receive as much attention as their big brother, they are just as delicious, and I’m sure you’ll agree, are equally worthy of our undying affection.

So if you’re out shopping and see one of these Goo Goo treats, let’s help them feel the love and buy one. You can thank me later!

But there are some others you should be thanking too. Namely, my friend Amanda and my friend Leah.

Amanda made some insane Peanut Butter Goo Goo Cluster Brownies for the SFA Potluck a few weeks ago and let me tell you, they may just be the best brownies ever! To get the recipe, hop on over to  her blog.

And then Leah. Dear Leah. I found a recipe for Goo Goo Supreme Cupcakes on her blog many moons ago. She was baking with Goo Goos before it became cool to bake with Goo Goos! Leah knows what’s up.

C’mon, you know you wanna do it. Go bake one of these recipes. Or heck, BOTH of them. Then blame it on the older one. He’s 100. All’s forgiven when you’re that age, right?
