In 1909 The Pearson Candy Company was founded by five brothers in Minneapolis. The company started to manufacture their own products, making its debut in 1912 for a nickel was the Nut Goodie! The Nut Goodie has stood the test of time being in production for over 100 years! It is covered in real milk chocolate, with a creamy maple center. Only fresh unsalted Virginia peanuts are used; they are larger and crunchier!
