Somehow I have made it forty-eight years on this planet without discovering Goo Goo Clusters, a chocolate treat that everyone else seemed to know about. My generous co-worker Brian M. rectified this situation by providing me with a Goo Goo Variety Pack.
A typical Goo Goo Cluster is a core of soft caramel and marshmallow, sprinkled with peanuts and coated in milk chocolate. This box contained 6 Goo Goo Clusters: three original, two supreme, and a p’nut butter.
The original one was good, but I found it to be a little too sweet for my tastes. A lot of the chocolate covered peanuts fell off of it, and those were quite yummy to eat.
The supreme was a little better, with pecans replacing the peanuts and providing a nice astringency to the candy bar that I liked.
The peanut butter one was the best. The overly sweet caramel and marshmallow was replaced with a yummy smooth peanut butter filling, making the whole thing into an over-sized, peanut-studded Reese’s cup. It was my favorite!
