Garrett Popcorn - 26 W Randolph St, Chicago: 3 reviews and 5 photos
Garrett Popcorn is a Chicago institution! I first heard about this place from my friend Christel, who I worked with; she's from Chicago. So I decided that would be a fine thing for me to do for my 40th bday - go to Chitown.
The best thing to do is arrive at the stores first thing in the morning when the popcorn is freshly made. The popcorn will be hot, the butter & the cheese will be dripping off the kernels; absolutely delicious and cannot be replicated via shipped corn.
Oprah even reportedly loves the stuff and shares the Chicagoan fever for Cheese & Caramel mixed!!
What to buy: ~
$2.25 - Small buttery popcorn
$4.10 - Small macadamia caramel
$3.45 - Small cashew caramel crisp
$3.55 - Medium cheese corn
What to pay: Expect to pay as little as $2.25 for a small bag of buttered popcorn or $50 or more for one of the large tins.
