Today is Popcorn Lovers Day, and we’re going NUTS with excitement!

So much so that we had the lovely Mike and Tara of out to our Michigan Avenue Shop to help us celebrate.

Here’s a run down from their blog about their experience with Garrett Popcorn:

“In honor of Popcorn Lovers DayGarrett Popcorn treated us lovers to a sweet-and-salty kissingtour of its Michigan Avenue store. We enjoyed meeting staff as they bagged orders for excited popcorn patrons, some whose first stop in Chicago is the family-owned shop, established 1949. Like excited 5th graders on a field trip, we asked lots of questions. We learned they use old-fashioned copper kettles and hot air pop their kernels. The rest is a big secret. They won’t give it up. To keep us from pressing, they fed us samples of The Chicago Mix and Plain too, because we’re popcorn purists.”
