About National Chocolate Covered Nut Day
No matter the type of nut, covering in chocolate creates a winning combination.
Dipping nuts in chocolate became popular in the 1900s. The first chocolate-covered peanut candy was called Goobers. Goobers went on the market for sale in 1925. “Goober” was commonly used in slang for peanut.
M&M’s, the famous candy with chocolate-covered nuts was introduced in 1954. They are covered with a thin candy shell and remain a best seller even today, but since there is no National Candy Covered Chocolate Covered Nut Day, today will have to do.
