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!
