The history and origin of the National Peanut Cluster Day are unknown. There is no mention of the creator and the first occurrence of this Day anywhere. Although there is no official record found about the origin of the peanut clusters, historians believe that the Americans have introduced the candy. They began to produce the first peanut clusters with honey or caramel, and it wasn’t made out of chocolate covering. Peanut Cluster is a combination of melted chocolate and peanuts. It is a candy formed out of sweet chocolate and salted peanuts most often. There are other peanut clusters available, and they are made with peanut and caramel or peanut and butterscotch combinations.
During the 1930s, Elmo Lanzi invented the first machine to dip the peanut clusters in chocolate. The machine has been designed in such a way that it automates the slow process of hand-enrobing and thus came the machine-made chocolate covered peanut clusters. The peanut is otherwise called as groundnut or goober is the most favourite nuts consumed all over the world and especially in the USA. Chocolate is one of the most popular food types and flavours in the world. Both these peanuts and chocolate are used in wide range of confectioneries, and peanut cluster is one among them.
