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:
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!
