Goo Goo

In 1912, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company the world’s first ever combination candy bar was invented, The Goo Goo Cluster. 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. Attendees will enjoy a hands-on “Make Your Own Goo-Goo” experience at the flagship retail store.
   













Savannah's Candy Kitchen - RCI Member

Over thirty years ago, Stan Strickland opened Savannah’s Candy Kitchen on historic River Street in Savannah, Georgia. Using recipes learned while baking with his mother, visitors quickly discovered that Savannah’s Candy Kitchen was the place to experience and taste down home Southern sweetness. In order to keep up with the demand for his candy, Stan had to expand; he made sure to keep his recipes fresh and homemade no matter how big the kitchen grew. Now the original Savannah’s Candy Kitchen store on River Street occupies over 4,200 square feet and every square foot is filled to the brim with the best candies, cakes, and confections in the South. He has also added new stores in Savannah's City Market; the Atlanta Airport; Charleston, South Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee and National Harbor, Maryland.
