“So Good We Went Back For More!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

This was our first time at Garrett's and it didn't disappoint. The wait was worth it. Many reviewers said how expensive it was, so we were anticipating high prices. We were pleasantly surprised. We felt that the prices were very reasonable. The line moved very fast...we met and visited with some great people. We will definitely visit again when we get to Chicago.

“BEST popcorn in the Galaxy!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

You can't walk past Garretts, smell that popcorn and not go in and get something. It is AMAZING!!!! Not sure what I like better, the cheese popcorn or the carmel. Not much more to say other than you are missing out big time if you don't stop in!

“Love this popcorn!!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

By far- this is a must have while in Chicago. I am even grateful for the storefront in O'Hare!!! The Chicago mix is good, but truly our absolute favorite is the caramel cashew!!!! To die for!!!! My son said that even the normal buttered popcorn seems better at "Garrett's!!!" Go and get it hot! It will be a highlight of your trip!

“Overhyped popcorn”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Friends and family who either have visited or lived in Chi town all have said to try Garrett's. I did and well, it's just popcorn. At least I can check it off my list now of things to do in the Windy City.

“buy it at the airport and skip the lines!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Garrett's popcorn is legendary and so are the lines a the shop off Michigan Ave. The caramel corn is delish but you have to wait for at least 1/2 hour in line on the street. It is available at the airport and there is never a line. Same stuff!
