Garrett is the amazing popcorn that I have ever eaten. It is crispy. and you can't stop to eat it. I ordered the popular one in thailand; The Chicago Mix (cheese corn and caramel crisp). When you eat it, you can feel the cheese is melting in your mouth With the caramel that is a good smell and sweet.

Get the Chicago mix, I promise you will not regret it. The popcorn is pricy, but it is a must while you are in the city. Don't worry about the line, it moves and is totally worth it!

Ok, I will admit that I really did not want any of this popcorn. True, it smells good anytime you pass a shop, but over priced popcorn should be reserved for the movie theatre. My wife, who happens to be a sugar fiend, was determined to get some. So while we were waiting for a train, she bought some cheese... More

Nobody tops Garrett Popcorn! Must visit location just off Michigan Ave. Anytime of the day, this place always has a line and it is worth the wait.

I have to say, the popcorn is really good. We had the Garrett Blend, and we couldn't stop eating it until the bag was empty. Go have some and enjoy!

nothing really special. Interesting to experience it as there are not many speciality popcorn shops in other cities. But nothing extraordinary

This is really good popcorn. We were there during Christmas time and they had gingerbread and white chocolate flavors. I personally love the cheese. Fresh and made that day. Expect to wait in line at high traffic time. We waited 45 minutes but again fabulous popcorn.

You know its good when the line is out the door on a cold day in December! The popcorn is amazing. We went twice while in town because once was not enough! LOVE IT!!! Staff was friendly!! People are goofy though, the line was out the door, so instead of keeping the door closed to keep it warm inside, people... More

There is a reason that everyone says to stop at Garrett's. The popcorn is awesome and is part of the feel of Chicago!
