Here’s what you may have missed recently with Garrett Popcorn Shops®…

Tins the Season Thanksgiving Day ParadeIn Parades…
We took part in two parades to kick off the holiday season. On November 19 the Tins the Season float made its second appearance in the BMO Harris Magnificent Mile Parade®. During the festival, we learned that American Idol Star Colton Dixon was a fan of The Chicago Mix! We’re happy he made an appearance in the Shops.

How I Met Your Mother We handed out The Chicago Mix to fans along the McDonald’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on State Street, our first year participating in this annual holiday tradition. You can relive the fun of both parades on our Facebook photo album.

On Television…
Garrett Popcorn Shops® earned a “Stamp of Approval” when our Signature Celebrate Tin made an appearance in a recent episode of How I Met Your Mother.

Watch the clip to see how Marshall uses CheeseCorn and CaramelCrisp® to score points with his boss.

Lights Fest
If you’re headed to the 21st annual BMO Harris Magnificent Mile Lights Festival® on Saturday, November 17, Garrett Popcorn Shops® will be there! With so much happening throughout the day, it’s best to plan in order to see and taste it all.

Between 11a.m. – 3:30p.m. families can enjoy live musical performances at the BMO Harris Bank Stage in Pioneer Court (401 N. Michigan Ave.), and can walk over to the Garrett booth for complimentary samples of our famous Chicago Mix. We’ll also have hot cups of CaramelCrisp® Apple Cider for sale for $2 a cup. All proceeds benefit the Lurie Children’s Hospital Heroes for Life program.

Continue shopping in Pioneer Court until 5p.m. or walk along Michigan Avenue to take in the decorations. If you’re near our 625 N. Michigan Avenue Shop, pop in for a taste of Gingerbread CaramelCrisp®. If you don’t have time to stop before the parade, this Shop will be open until 11 p.m. for your convenience.

Tins the Season!
Find your spot along Michigan Avenue before 5:30p.m. when the Tree-Lighting Parade begins. We’re proud to make our second appearance with the “Tins the Season” float! Fans can enjoy the delicious aroma of CaramelCrisp® as our chef cooks everyone’s favorite treat on-board. Garrett representatives will also hand out bags of The Chicago Mix to boys and girls along the parade route.

Stay to the end and enjoy the fireworks display over the Chicago River.

If you’re unable to attend, we’ll be broadcast on ABC 7 Chicago at 6 p.m., or you can get a real time feel for the parade action by following our Twitter account, @GarrettPopcorn. Hope to see you there!
