Chocolate-coated (or chocolate-covered) peanuts are a popular bulk vending product. They consist of peanuts coated in a shell of milk chocolate. They have a reputation in many countries of being food eaten in movie theaters, and are an item most familiar from the concession counter.
In some countries, they are also known as Goobers, which is the earliest and one of the most popular brands of the product, made by Nestlé. Goobers were introduced in the United States in 1925 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. Nestlé acquired the brand in 1984. A large number of other brands also exists.
A similar food, also commonly sold at movie theaters, is the chocolate-coated raisin.
