Oh, Goodie, Goodie!

At Inkspirational Messages, we recognize that chocolate is the most important of the five food groups (said tongue-in-cheek, just in case you’re wondering), so I’d be remiss if I didn’t cap off this hometown series with an homage to one of the greatest candy bars ever invented:

Pearson’s Nut Goodie

Nut Goodie

This delectable candy bar brimming with chocolate and peanuts and a creamy maple center was born in Minneapolis 102 years ago (1912) and has been making mouths water ever since.

The Nut Goodie is created by Pearson’s which originally began as Pearson Candy Company (five Pearson brothers) in 1909. Before this bar’s creation, the company was just a candy distributor. But the Nut Goodie Bar changed that. Until 1933, it was their main creation. That’s when Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll came on the scene. No chocolate, but equally as yummy.

The company has since crossed the river into St. Paul, and it has changed hands. Along the way Pearsons also introduced other candy bars, but Nut Goodie and Salted Nut Roll remain its staples.

Now, unfortunately, the Nut Goodie is not calorie free. I know, you’re shocked, right? So, I treat myself infrequently, but when I do, it is worth every bite!

  1. Brenda,

    The Nut Goodie is YUMMY!!!! The soda fountain in our pharmacy competed in a Nut Goodie sundae contest a year or so ago in honor of the Nut Goodie’s anniversary. It was fun!

  2. Brenda, that’s making my mouth water. I don’t think I’ve ever had one but wish one would drop out of the sky right now.

  3. You’ve got my cravings going full force! I may have to stick one in the old grocery bag today when I go now.

  4. Ooooh — a mapley turtle. How cool. I need to trek out there just for the candy you have. I have a secret stash of European chocolate in my fridge. I feel the need to break into some right now.

    1. Oh, I like that description: mapley turtle! Since I LOVE turtle sundae’s, and I love maple flavor that explains why love Nut Goodies. Hmmm, if they’d make this with pecans instead of peanuts, then I’d like it even more. ~~~ A stash of European chocolate??? Yum!!! Okay, enough drooling now …

  5. Yummy! I love chocolate. The cover of Rose’s book looks pretty and sweet. Thanks for having the giveaway.
