  109. Caramel Pecan Crisp

  110. When walking along the streets of the city, one can smell Garretts a mile away and the smeall instantly makes ones mouth water, eyes buldge and has them stopped in their tracks to see if they can pinpoint the exact location. Good thing for these people, Garrett’s multiple locations allows for easy access to that great smell of Chicago’s BEST popcorn. With having said that, I always recommend the Chicago Mix for those wanders who cannot seem to decide on which mix to try first because that is my all time favorite flavor/choice of Garretts!!!

  111. Delicious, savory CheeseCorn

  112. “Pop! . . . Pop! . . Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!”

  121. CarmelCrisp is my absolute fav!

  122. The Chicago Mix is my absolute favorite with caramel being a close second. I love it so much my husband and I ordered 100 bags to be shipped to Alaska for our wedding reception. I also recently won an award and had a Garrett’s popcorn container in the picture with me.

  127. I love the Chicago Mix. get it every time I visit Chicago!

  128. When ever I go through O’Hare, I get a popcorn ball!

  129. Chicago Mix is my absolute favorite. Perfect mix of sweet, salty and cheesy. The caramel and the cheese are each great alone, but make a special kind of magic when combined. Plus there’s nothing better than Garrett’s.

  130. Caramel. My all time favorite food. We visit Chicago every Christmas, and sometimes one other time during the year. We’ve brought Garrett’s caramel corn back to so many friends and family, that now everyone asks us to keep bringing it. In December, I purchase three shopping bags full of caramel corn for our friends in middle Tennessee who were begging for it!

  131. Chicago Mix… it bad when your 3 year old niece refers to the UPS man as the popcorn man.

  132. I adore Chicago Mix, and it adds a POP to my step!

  133. I love the Chicago Mix! I can take out a Medium Mix watching a movie!
    Thanks for putting a store at 87th and Cottage Grove. Even with the long lines,…. it’s sooo worth it!!

  134. Chicago Mix is my pick! Although sometimes I must admit to buying a bag of cheese and a bag of caramel and alternating between the two. Isn’t that how the Chicago Mix came to be??? Love me some Garrett’s!

  135. garrets is awesome…i love chicago mix

  136. Chicago mix is my absolute favorite!!! Wish I could have it more :)

  137. At first it was Cheesecorn, as I couldn’t fathom the possibility of adulterating that perfect rich flavor with the sweetness of caramel that is the Chicago Mix that my partner enjoys….But then, the day came that I unwittingly scooped my hand into the wrong tin…..and everything changed….with the first crunch of the cheesecorn mixed with caramel, the sky became more blue, the air more crisp, and I have never been the same….

  138. You’d make our 2012 with a yummy tin of Garrett’s , The Best of the Midwest !

  139. The tin, the tin, the tin is on fire….we don’t need no water let the Chicago Mix pop…the tin, the tin, the tin is on fire, we don’t need no water let the Chicago Mix pop!!!

  140. Chicago mix is my fav!!!!

  141. The old and greatest flavor is the good ole Carmel Corn! Love it!!

  142. Love the Chicago mix, I remember we waited in line soooo long but it is worth the wait!!!!!!

  143. Chicago Mix is the BEST!!!!

  144. I love the Chicago Mix… with a little extra caramel corn mixed into it. Not quite half and half. Sweet and salty is always the BEST. Especially if it is Garrett’s ! ! !


  146. Cicago Mix and #Marchmadness! Iam in heaven!

  147. Chicago mix is the best ever

  148. LOVE Garretts popcorn! My mother in law sent me a tin for my Birthday and it was hard to share with my husband and kids…but I managed to let them have a few pieces. Chicago Mix is my favorite. Sweet, salty, buttery and cheesy…perfection!!!! (I also enjoy the straight up caramel when it is just slightly stale and has a chewy texture…mmmmmmmm).

  149. Coming from Motown Garretts is a MUST for every Chicago visit. On the way into town…while visiting…and once again on the way out of town to take back to family ! Caramel Crisp is the one I love!

  189. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and relocated to Georgia in 2007. When I lived in Wisconsin I would drive to Chicago every weekend with friends and the first place we went was to Garretts for our favorite Chicago Mix! Now that I am miles away I order Garretts as a treat to myself any chance I can get. Luckily I still have friends that live in Wisconsin that send me Garretts as well! Hands down the Chicago Mix is my favorite!

  190. Chicago Mix of course. Love my home state.

  191. Chicago Mix is the Best!!!

    Was in Chicago for a job fair last week and purchased $45 of popcorn to bring back to family and friends… making new customers for you!!!

    How about some locations in the south suburbs? Have you considered the major shopping malls? I guarantee your popcorn is addicting and will ruin everyone’s diet. Maybe you should partner locations in the fitness clubs 😉

  192. I love Garretts Popcorn and the Chicago Mix!!!

  193. I look forward to traveling to Chicago for work, just to stop by Garrett’s for numerous large bags of Chicago Mix. You know 1 for me and the rest for co-workers.

  194. Chicago is the best….:)

  195. Experienced the Chicago Mix for the first time this past weekend. Wow! Talk about fully impressed. I can already see a trip to Garrett’s Popcorn Shop on every trip to the city. Amazingly addictive stuff! =)
