The Nut Goodie Bar, one of the company’s first manufactured products, made its debut in 1912 as a premium 5-cent candy bar, and was met with much success.
I grew up in St. Paul where the Pearson Candy company is located. My father knew someone there who would sometimes give him a whole box of the rejects! These were bars where the chocolate coating missed a bit of the maple creme patty or the whole patty was misshapen. They had usually been made just the day before and were sooooo good.
I still buy Nut Goodies whenever I am back in Minnesota visiting friends and relatives. They are so popular some of my new neighbors now ask if I am going to bring them some Nut Goodies in return for watching my house while I'm away. ~ Roz from North Carolina
