Goo Goo Shop Mayor Karl Dean

Back in 1912, America’s first combination candy bar was invented. It all started at Standard Candy Company in downtown Nashville. The Goo Goo Cluster recipe was a joint undertaking by Mr. Howell Campbell, Sr., and Mr. Porter Moore, the original plant supervisor. Mr. Campbell blended chocolate in a copper kettle, the same way fine whiskey is blended, with high-quality ingredients. Their new concoction contained luscious caramel, creamy marshmallow nougat and fresh-roasted peanuts, covered with a thick coating of real milk chocolate. [read more…]
