The holiday season is comprised of many traditions which we hold dear. Traditions we’ve known since childhood, which still fill us with that warm child-like innocence.

Garrett Popcorn has been regarded as A Chicago Holiday Tradition for over 60 years. Ask anyone standing in line in front of our stores in the middle of December, and they’ll tell you Garrett is their “reward” after the hustle and bustle of shopping on Michigan Avenue.

They might even tell you about how their grandparents took them to Garrett every holiday season when they were young and now the tradition lives on with their children.

This holiday season, share the tradition of Garrett Popcorn with your family and friends. With so many tin selections and timeless flavors (like our signature caramel popcorn), Garrett has Christmas gift ideas for almost everyone on your list!

Every December we pull our holiday ornaments from boxes and adorn our homes with reminders of this magical season and holiday’s passed, but we like to incorporate another decorating staple: popcorn! Stringing popcorn from your tree is a fun activity to share with family and a delicious one at that because there is no better way to spend your snowy Chicago evening together, enjoying the flavors of  our gourmet popcorn (warning: Garrett’s CheeseCorn™ may leave a delectable cheesy residue on your family’s fingers).  It’s simple, take a needle tied with a long piece of  thread and string away.

Also, not only are our custom holiday tins great to display in windows or on tables, our favorite spot is right under the tree and topped with a bow for Christmas Day munching.  The holidays really are about spending time with family and enjoying the company of those you love. And with a fun flavor for everyone, Garrett Popcorn Shops is here to add to the fun!

Garrett Popcorn Shops has been a Chicago Holiday Tradition for over 60 years. This holiday season, don’t miss our Free Holiday Trolley, featuring our CaramelCrisp® Carolers, who will be making appearances downtown every Saturday and Sunday, December 4th through December 19th. As a thank you for braving the cold weather, we’ll also be serving hot caramel apple cider to our patrons at Michigan Avenue. So stop by one of our downtown locations and enjoy the ultimate holiday experience of Garrett Popcorn after a successful day of shopping. It’s beginning to look a lot like Garrett!
