Without understanding the origins of chocolate, it is impossible to fully understand the history of chocolate-covered peanuts. The cacao trees produce chocolate for thousands of years. It can be traced back to the Mayan people, and the Olmecs, who lived in the southern regions of Mexico.
Although it’s not clear when cacao beans were first used, historians believe it was around 1500 BC. Early on, cacao beans were used to make special drinks that could be used for celebrations and ceremonies. Because they didn’t use milk or sweeteners, chocolate at that time would have been stronger and bitterer than it is today. They probably used some spices to make the drinks.
Chocolate was first made into candy, bars and drinks in the 1800s. It was the invention of the chocolate bar, which led to the melting of chocolate and the covering of nuts with it.
From the 19th century, it was popular to dip nuts and fruits into chocolate. The first commercially available chocolate-covered nuts were made in America in 1925. The oldest brand is ‘Goobers’. The name of the chocolate-covered peanut treat was inspired by the traditional American nickname “goober”, which had been used to describe peanuts in the south.
Blumenthal Brothers Chocolate and Cocoa Company was the one behind the creation of the first “Goobers”. Nestle later bought the Goobers business in 1984. Nestle was one of the first companies to get involved in the creation of chocolate bars. In 2018, the Fererro Company took over the company.
The Mars Company introduced peanut M&Ms in 1954. This candy coating is an improvement on the traditional chocolate-covered peanut. This snack is still a chocolate-covered peanut, and it’s enjoyed all over the globe!
The popularity of chocolate-coated nuts is due to their versatility as a snack that can be enjoyed while watching movies. Although it’s not clear when chocolate-covered peanuts received their first day of honor, it is believed that the festival was established in the USA.
