The Chicago Blackhawks resume their quest to repeat as Stanley Cup champions today when they face off against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

With eight wins in the books after tough battles with the St. Louis Blues and Minnesota Wild, the ‘Hawks are just eight wins away from lifting Lord Stanley once again.

Garrett Popcorn loves it when there is a big event to celebrate in our hometown of Chicago, and it doesn’t get much bigger than bringing the Stanley Cup back to The Windy City! All you have to do for proof is look at the incredible photos from the parade last summer that was thrown for the Blackhawks.

Stanley Cup

With the Conference Finals beginning, there is plenty to get excited about. Lord Stanley is getting closer with each win. And around this time last year, the ‘Hawks were dispatching the Kings in the Western Conference Finals thanks to a hat-trick from Patrick Kane, which he topped off with his third goal coming as a dramatic overtime winner to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins. Everyone in Chicago knows how that ended…

So as the Blackhawks being the next step in their Stanley Cup defense, why don’t you grab a Chicago Blackhawks Tin of our Chicago Mix and enjoy some playoff hockey!

Go Blackhawks!

Garrett Popcorn was born and raised in Chicago, so of course we’re rooting for our hometown hockey team during the Stanley Cup Playoffs!

Last weekend, the Chicago Blackhawks beat their rivals from St Louis to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks will continue their defense against the Minnesota Wild tonight at the United Center.

As “A Chicago Tradition,” Garrett Popcorn would like to congratulate the ‘Hawks on advancing to the next round and wish them the best of luck against the Wild.

It’s already been an exhilarating Cup defense for Chicago, with star players Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each scoring decisive game-winning overtime goals against the Blues in Game 4 and Game 5, respectively, of the first round.

Adrenaline was flowing in the Garrett Popcorn offices during the dramatic first round, and we’re looking forward to even more excitement in the next round!

With the second round getting underway tonight, now is the perfect time to stock up on game time snacks while also showing your Blackhawks pride. Stop by one of our Shops or go online to get the Chicago Blackhawks Tin and fill it with your favorite Garrett Popcorn.

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!
