Goo Goo Summer Chef Series 2016



I’m currently in the midst of one of the best parts of my job – preparing for the launch of our Goo Goo Summer Chef Series! I’ve been working for a few weeks to pull together a great list of chefs to participate, and I’m so excited about the lineup! (see above)

Last year was our first series, and it was such a hit that before the end of it rolled around, we’d already decided we’d be making it an annual thing. Not familiar with the series? Basically we invite some of Nashville’s best chefs to tell us what their “dream” Goo Goo would contain, then our pastry chef starts playing around in the kitchen to perfect the chef’s vision. You can see all of last year’s very creative Goo Goos here.

Every other week between July 15h and end of September, we’ll introduce a new chef’s Premium. First up on 7/15 will be “The Margoo”, Margot McCormack’s delicious creation made up of salted caramel, candied hazelnuts, hazelnut butter caramel ganache, and Willa’s Classic Shortbread, all covered in dark chocolate. Swoon.

So how can you try all of the chefs’ Premiums as they roll out? For the locals, all you have to do is head down to the Goo Goo Shop (116 3rd Ave S) to purchase. For those of you outside of Nashville, this time around, we’re also going to make these creations available online! You can check Goo Goo’s social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for the announcement of each new flavor.

I’ve even set up a discount code for my readers that will be good on any purchase from the Goo Goo online store from now through end of October. All you have to do is type in code  EDS16 at checkout, and you’ll get 20% off your purchase! If you’re local, just print this blog post or keep it on your phone and show it to the retail associate when making a purchase at the Goo Goo Shop and they’ll give you 20% off your purchase* too!


*Offer expires 10-31-16. 20% discount applies to total purchase, but purchase must include at least 1 Premium Goo Goo to be valid.
