The Chicago Blackhawks resume their quest to repeat as Stanley Cup champions today when they face off against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

With eight wins in the books after tough battles with the St. Louis Blues and Minnesota Wild, the ‘Hawks are just eight wins away from lifting Lord Stanley once again.

Garrett Popcorn loves it when there is a big event to celebrate in our hometown of Chicago, and it doesn’t get much bigger than bringing the Stanley Cup back to The Windy City! All you have to do for proof is look at the incredible photos from the parade last summer that was thrown for the Blackhawks.

Stanley Cup

With the Conference Finals beginning, there is plenty to get excited about. Lord Stanley is getting closer with each win. And around this time last year, the ‘Hawks were dispatching the Kings in the Western Conference Finals thanks to a hat-trick from Patrick Kane, which he topped off with his third goal coming as a dramatic overtime winner to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins. Everyone in Chicago knows how that ended…

So as the Blackhawks being the next step in their Stanley Cup defense, why don’t you grab a Chicago Blackhawks Tin of our Chicago Mix and enjoy some playoff hockey!

Go Blackhawks!

Garrett Popcorn was born and raised in Chicago, so of course we’re rooting for our hometown hockey team during the Stanley Cup Playoffs!

Last weekend, the Chicago Blackhawks beat their rivals from St Louis to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks will continue their defense against the Minnesota Wild tonight at the United Center.

As “A Chicago Tradition,” Garrett Popcorn would like to congratulate the ‘Hawks on advancing to the next round and wish them the best of luck against the Wild.

It’s already been an exhilarating Cup defense for Chicago, with star players Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each scoring decisive game-winning overtime goals against the Blues in Game 4 and Game 5, respectively, of the first round.

Adrenaline was flowing in the Garrett Popcorn offices during the dramatic first round, and we’re looking forward to even more excitement in the next round!

With the second round getting underway tonight, now is the perfect time to stock up on game time snacks while also showing your Blackhawks pride. Stop by one of our Shops or go online to get the Chicago Blackhawks Tin and fill it with your favorite Garrett Popcorn.

It’s Playoff Season in Chicago!

Our two beloved residents at the United Center, the NHL‘s Chicago Blackhawks and the NBA‘s Chicago Bulls, are making their push to bring home more silverware to The Windy City.

Playoff Push

These two teams are no strangers to trophies. The Blackhawks are the reigning Stanley Cup champions, and have lifted Lord Stanley twice in the past four years. Silverware has been a bit more scarce for the Bulls in recent times, but no one can forget the six NBA titles delivered to Chicago during the 1990′s Michael Jordan era.

Since Garrett Popcorn is Chicago born and raised, we are celebrating two of our teams making the postseason with a special Playoff Package!

Let Garrett Popcorn Shops take care of the treats during this years’ Playoff Push with our limited time offer of 2-for-1 UPS ground shipping. Enjoy this Playoff Package with two, 1-gallon Tins filled with The Chicago Mix. It’s a winning combination!

Don’t let this deal pass you buy. Get both our Blackhawks Tin and Bulls Tin today to showcase your Windy City pride!
