Why does Chicago still have its mind on ice with Spring already sprung?

Why are the men of Chicago covering their faces with scruffy beards?

Why will the “Madhouse on Madison” be packed on Monday night?

Because It’s The Cup!

Go Blackhawks!

That’s the slogan the NHL has been pushing for weeks now in anticipation of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and now they have finally arrived.

Right now, the Blackhawks are the toast of Chicago. Kings of a sports-crazed city. The reigning Stanley Cup champions are among the favorites once again as they prepare to defend the remarkable silverware affectionately known as Lord Stanley.

It all starts tonight against the rival Blues of St. Louis. Can Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane drive the Blackhawks to raising the Cup once again? We sure hope so! Will Duncan Keith sacrifice is teeth yet again for the Cup? We hope not; you need teeth to enjoy Popcorn!

At Garrett Popcorn, we pride ourselves on being “A Chicago Tradition.” We know Chicago is proud of its teams, especially one that is defending its crown. That’s why we offer a Chicago Blackhawks Tin! We want the people of Chicago to be able to show off their passion with pride.

So this is your moment, Chicago. This is playoff season, and we’re here to make sure it screams Chicago. Stop by one of our Shops, fill up a Blackhawks Tin full of the Chicago Mix and cheer on the ‘Hawks!

Two goals. 17 seconds.

If you live in Chicago, chances are you know this story.

Of course it’s the epic tale of the Chicago Blackhawks lifting the 2013 Stanley Cup after beating the Boston Bruins in a dramatic late comeback during Game 6 of the Finals.

Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland (we miss you, Dave) scored two late goals in 17 seconds to beat the Bruins 3-2 and bring hockey’s most prestigious honor home to Chicago.

Tonight we all get to enjoy a rematch between these two incredible teams, and being A Chicago Tradition ourselves, we just had to honor one of the shining moments in The Windy City’s recent history.

What will you be snacking on tonight for this Stanley Cup rematch? Might we recommend some Chicago Mix from Garrett Popcorn as you cheer on the Chicago Blackhawks?

You can’t beat enjoying A Chicago Tradition while cheering on another Chicago tradition.

Stop by one of our Shops today before the big game!

Go Blackhawks!
