Team Chicago Mix is headed to the Garrett Games! We know they’re special Garrett kernels, but when did they first discover their talents? Read on for a special Q&A session with CaramelCrisp® and CheeseCorn™.

Q: When did you first see signs of your popping talents?

CheeseCorn™: I remember this one time at practice, watching one of the older kernels execute a cheese tumbler routine. I thought about one of his moves, did it, and really impressed my coach. After that, I thought, “Hey, maybe I can go to the Garrett Games one day too.”

CaramelCrisp®: I was kind of a late bloomer. I often didn’t place at competitions, but one day everything just clicked and I knew that my place was in the copper kettle. Once I knew that, I really found my passion to return day after day.

Q: What pop songs fire you up before a competition?

CheeseCorn™: Like my teammate Buttery, I also love “Pop It” by the Blue Striped Cheese. I tumble like a champ after listening to that one!

CaramelCrisp®: *Laughs* It’s kind of a guilty pleasure…It’s “Pop” by ‘N Sweet. I’m not gonna hear the end of this from my friends.

Q: What advice do you have for other aspiring Garrett kernels?

CheeseCorn™: Life throws a lot of curve balls at you, and you need to have a solid support group. I feel so fortunate because the Garrett Family always has your back. Remembering that has been the most helpful thing when training gets hard.

CaramelCrisp®: Integrity. That’s the defining factor of a Garrett kernel – past, present and future. Be true to yourself and the rest will follow.
