Goo Goo Clusters


The Goo Goos arrived today. Goo Goos have become a holiday tradition at my office.

Apparently these delicious little patties of chocolate, marshmallow, peanuts and caramel are made in Nashville. When I have had legal work in the state of Tennessee, I have used a specific firm and a specific attorney there in Nashville and, subsequently I have received a box of Goo Goo Clusters from him every year.

The tradition is that I immediately hand out 5 of the Goo Goo Clusters and consume one. They all have to be gone within 5 minutes of receiving them...otherwise I will be tempted to eat more than one.

They are Goo Goo-licious. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Jesus Christ invented Goo-Goo Clusters. So it's OK to say "Merry Christmas" when you share Goo-Goo Clusters.

Ours showed up today from the same TN lawyer (named after the former Bills QB). I handed mine to Burmood. I'm guessing they're all gpone now.

I KNOW that Jesus would want us to enjoy Goo Goos while we pitied those who are not as holy as we are.

Merry Christmas!

I have never had one before...they contain every ingredient I love, however. I should try one right away, as I surely need to gain more weight!

Phoenix, I suggest you start out eating 1/2 of a Goo Goo - just a Goo. The full Goo Goo is not for amatures.

I seriously think I might die if I ate more than one of those in a day...or at least hurl.

I never get Goo-Goos anymore. And I think we even threw some business to those folks from down here in the Lone Star State a couple of years ago. Since Complete Game gave me their name he probably got all the credit ... and all the clusters.

"Not fair," as my three-year-old would argue.

Maybe you should have paid him for the work he did. Then maybe he would send you Goo Goos.

Um, sorry to be off topic. But it appears that Nowhere Girl has vanished. Again. Hopefully, it will be temporary or some sort of glitch.

BTW, I love Goo Goo Clusters, especially when they're frozen. Yummy.

You mean to say that there is a market for clusters of Goo?

My palatial bungalow is crawling in these things.

I have never heard of Goo-Goo Clusters. But I'm from Canada, and you know what that means... again a lot of water.

Dongley, my old palatial bachelor appartment was crawling in these things too... then I got married, and has since been replaced with potpouri.

I miss the old smell. Scent of protein makes me healthy.

Sadly, I've never tried one. I just hand mine to Brent. And I send so little work Jim's way anymore it won't be long before he scratches me off the list. I believe we had three boxes roll in here yesterday and/or Friday. Weill probably got some too.

Do they contain nuts? If so, they are persona non grata with me.

Does anybody else think they look like poo?

Perhaps poo with a marshmallow center.

Game, please stop asking dumb questions like "do they have nuts?" Read the description.

Chocolate, caramel, marshmallow and PEANUTS. So, no they do not have nuts since peanuts are legumes.

Why read when I can have you answer my question for me with less effort (and annoy you all at once)? Man, no wonder I kick mine to the curb. Nuts. Goddamn. That's nasty. The only nuts I like are Mario and Luigi and from what the ladies tell me they aint too tasty.

Always seen those in the south, but they never looked too appetizing. I like the home- made fudge at those roadside places that sell Native jewelry and Confederate doo-dads.

Maybe I live under rock down here in the South but I've never even heard of Goo Goos.
