Every trip to Chicago finds us in a Garrett's Popcorn Shop. The favorite is the cheese and Carmel corn mix. One for us to munch and one to take to family in Detroit. We are never disappointed.

The corn is a tad pricey, but it is amazing. Strongly recommend the mix and some napkins. The sweet of the caramel and the salty cheese is wow.

This is hands down the best popcorn on the market. We loved it so much that we took some tins for gifts. The flavors are fantastic.

Trying Garret's popcorn is a must when visiting Chicago... Actually you can now get these wonderful popcorn in many places (Tokio, Singapur, Atlanta to name a few)... Try Garrets combination!...

I've had this popcorn before, it's VERY tasty, a bit pricey but very tasty....the biggest problem with this location is that IT'S GONE!!!!! If you try to call the number it forwards you to a corporate number and you get a recording so you can't even call to make sure they are still at this location....I needed the extra walk.

Thank Perry R
