Candy Making at the Goo Goo Chocolate Company
(Sunday 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM)

In 1912, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville, TN, America's first combination candy bar was invented. A roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and real milk chocolate; its renegade shape was more difficult to wrap than the conventional rectangular or square shapes of the day. More importantly, this was the first time multiple elements were being mass-produced in a retail confection. Previous to the advent of the Goo Goo Cluster, candy bar manufacturing consisted of bars solely using chocolate, caramel or taffy. The Goo Goo Cluster represented the first time a bar consisted of more than just one principal ingredient. Your Taste of Goo Goo experience includes:

  • Tasting + Insider look at the history of Nashville's official candy bar
  • Hands-on candy making + chocolate machine experience
  • Classic clusters + take home apron
