        • The spicy cheese is fabulous!

          I also love pecan caramel crisp so much I buy it by the tin.

          • I can not wait to try the spicy chesse, I have been dreaming about it all weekend and the anticipation is driving me crazy with excitement!!! Love Garretts piping hot popcorn freshly made and finger licking good. Problem is adults aren’t supposed to lick their finger. Time to be a kid!

    • Chicago Mix! ‘Nuff said. :)

    • I absolutely love the Chicago Mix! I grew up with it, but as a child, I liked to alternate the two flavors, one kernel at a time – to savor each flavor individually…and also to make it last as long as possible! Now, I don’t have the patience so to make it last as long as possible, I just buy a bigger bag!

  238. LOVE the plain cheese popcorn! We pick some up every time we are in Chicago and order a tin for birthdays and special occasions ! The best popcorn I’ve ever had!

  239. I love, love, love the carmel corn!!!! Any tin is fine with me so long as it is filled with carmel corn!

  240. although I’ve never seen them in person- the blue traditional can is classy and to the point! It’s what is inside that MAKES the tin! I had never even heard of Garrett’s until one of our grad students brought us back the little bags of caramel while traveling to Chicago to study last month and I have to say I am now addicted!!!!!!! Luckily she has to go back and forth a few more times! :):):) I am now an email subscriber! DELISH!

  241. The ‘Chicago Mix’ is my go to choice for Garrett’s popcorn. The key is knowing your cheese to caramel ratio!

  242. I love the pink tin! But too agree that it is what’s inside that makes any of the tin’s special!!!!

  243. The blue can has always been the “Chicago Tradition” logo in my mind, let’s keep it going. Chicago Mix is my secret lover, because my husband is not aware when I hide and eat my
    popcorn. (all mine, all mine!!!) mmmhh.

  244. Love all the flavors, but cheese, caramel are faves! :-) Here’s hoping!! LOL

  245. The Original Blue Tin, but any of them filled with Chicago Mix would work!!

  246. It has to be the Chicago Mix! Always! When you get the hot carmel and mix is with the fresh cheese, it is decadent! Makes my entire family happy!

  247. I have been away from home (Chicago) for over a decade as I have tried to explain to friends and then explaining to my children that they hadn’t had popcorn until they had Garrets. I recently moved my family back home. Touring my kids around the city and showing them old neighborhoods we passed by Garrets on 87th I got so excited and wanted to stop we were on our way to a baby shower and I told them afterwards we would stop. It was closed when we left the shower. My son asked whats the deal with the this popcorn? Whats so special about it? I asked did you see the lines, the taste how it melts in your mouth. Just watch you will see. So I told them that we would stop after church. After church we went he still had his doubts. As we were standing in line I asked can you smeeelllllllll it my mouth was watery as I said it. He said yeah and. As we got inside and the smell got stronger he said ok what kind are we getting.I told him the Chicago Mix. Well I bought some and he actually bought his own and Guess what he did not want anyone to put there hands in his bag and directed everyone my way. Then he had the nerve to put his hands in my bag…. Now he just keep asking when we going back to Garrets…… As mister foods would say its just sooo UMMMMM UMMMMM GOOD!!!! SO Good! Lesson learned there is nothing like Garrets.

  248. No need to improve on Perfection: Classic Tin filled with Chicago Mix.

  250. Love the Chicago themed tins. Great as gifts. Have given the Chicago tin and Cubs tin. Time for the Bulls tin. The popcorn is always a favorite.

  251. Macadamian Nut and Pecan carmel is the best. Curled up in the bed with a tin, you just can’t go wrong

  252. I Love the Chicago mix in the Chicago tin! Every time my friend and I visit Chicago we make sure that Garrett’s is our first and last stop.

  263. I had Garrett’s popcorn for the first time last year on a visit to Chicago, I got the Chicago mix and locked it in my suitcase because I didn’t want to eat it all before I left town as I was only there for two days.
