We received a coupon from a travel book for a free sample of popcorn. We tried the Chicago mix and were not disappointed! I am craving more already! Be prepared to stand in line, because everyone else loves it to! It is worth the wait!!

It lives up to it's name. The Chicago mix is great. You get some of all of what they have. A tad expensive but worth the money.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
