Special edition Tastiest Popcorn Picks evaluates the compatibility of Garrett Popcorn with a selection of Best Picture nominees. Hop into Popcorn Picks’ time machine to look at the roaring 20s through The Artist — an era of silent films, flappers and *gasp* before Garrett Popcorn.

Tastiest Popcorn Picks rates Best Picture nominees based on two categories:
Crunch Factor on a scale from 1 (might as well be a silent film) to 10 (totally crunchtastic)
Crowd Control on a scale from 1 (massive movie night) to 10 (couples-only crowd)

Crunch Factor
Silent films had their place in Hollywood history, but it was well before movie-goers connected with Garrett Popcorn in 1949. Luckily, the symphony of CaramelCrisp® and CheeseCorn™ pairs well with the movie’s jazzy soundtrack. Recognizing it’s hard to be quieter than silence, Tastiest Popcorn Picks awards this Best Picture nominee with a 1 for Crunch Factor!

Crowd Control
Bring your sweetie with you to watch actions speak louder than words. Enjoy the beautiful music and cinematography of the movie, as well as the occasional brushing of hands when you both reach for Chicago Mix. Scoring the extremes in both categories, this charming film gets a 10 for Crowd Control!

Popcorn Picks Recommendation
George Valentin experiences first-hand that fame fades and trends change. One tradition that’s here to stay? Enjoying Garrett Popcorn with movies!

It’s movie awards season and the lists are out! Tastiest Popcorn Picks will evaluate a selection of the Best Picture nominees’ compatibility with Garrett Popcorn. In this first installment of Tastiest Popcorn Picks, we travel to Paris to chime in on the clockwork of a little boy named Hugo.

Tastiest Popcorn Picks rates Best Picture nominees based on two categories:
Crunch Factor on a scale from 1 (might as well be a silent film) to 10 (totally crunchtastic)
Crowd Control on a scale from 1 (massive movie night) to 10 (couples-only crowd)

Crunch Factor
Lurking in the shadows to avoid life in an orphanage, Hugo makes do with what’s at hand. Help his cause and avoid munching too loudly while he swipes his pain quotidien for sustenance. Feel free to pick up your tin when the action of this magical film picks up as well. Hugo earns a Crunch Factor of 7!

Crowd Control
What if your movie companion were as hungry as a 12-year old boy, living a solitary existence manning the train station’s clocks? Celebrate your life outside the confines of a wall cavity and share your Chicago Mix! Popcorn Picks gives Hugo a 3 for Crowd Control.

Popcorn Picks Recommendation
Rich in stunning imagery, adventure and fantasy, Hugo is a win for all ages. Bring along the family and plenty of treats from Garrett Popcorn Shops® and join Hugo on his heartwarming adventure!
