National Chocolate-Covered Peanuts Day

Today we celebrate chocolate-covered peanuts. They are often sold in bulk vending machines, at movie theaters, and at concession counters. Today there are many brands, but the original chocolate-covered peanuts brand was Goobers, first sold in 1925 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. It is now owned by Nestlé. "Goober" is a slang word for peanut around the world; it was likely derived from the Gullah word for peanut, which is "guber." Peanut M&M's, which are essentially chocolate-covered peanuts, were introduced in 1954. They were tan until 1960 when colors were introduced.

How to Observe National Chocolate-Covered Peanuts Day

Celebrate the day by eating chocolate-covered peanuts. Buy some at the store, in a vending machine, or at a movie theater. Try the Goobers brand or make your own.
