As restaurant tour guru for Black Violin, I enjoy finding delicacies for Black Violin to enjoy while on the road across America on the “Impossible” tour. For their stop in Music City, USA otherwise known as Nashville, Tennessee, Bacon & Bellini delivered a taste of some of Nashville’s favorites. Before “Hot Chicken” Nashville was known for decadent desserts.
The Christie Cookie Company bakery is a little piece of Nashville authenticity. Most know Christie Cookie as the creators of the DoubleTree Hotel cookie. Christie Cookie Company uses real butter and has been in business for over 30 years. Each batch of cookies is hand-crafted right in Nashville by people who understand originality.

Our next batch of treats are Goo Goo Clusters. Did you know that the first ever combination candy bar, Goo Goo Cluster, was invented in Nashville? Well, the Goo Goo Cluster was first made in 1912 in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville, Tennessee. Goo Goo Clusters revolutionized the world of candy and remain one of the most popular candy bars in the USA. For more information or to order visit https://googoo.com/
Before we conclude our Nashville desserts tour, we had to include everyone’s favorites……CUPCAKES. The Cupcake Collection was founded by Mignon Francois in the historic Germantown area of North Nashville in 2008. Since 2008 Francois and The Cupcake Collection have won numerous awards, including “Woman of Legend and Merit” Award by Tennessee State University, and “Family Business of the Year” award by Black Enterprise Magazine.
