I did not know popcorn could be gourmet, or that expensive, but I was wrong! Very impressed with the caramel and cheese popcorns. The butter flavor is good too! A definite must have when visiting Chicago!

We could smell the caramel from a block away and couldn’t figure out what it was so we followed it. Simply awesome. The line was outside the door during the day but ran shorter at 7 pm. Had to buy a bag. There are samples...More

When my friends and family heard I was near Garrett's, I had to make a second trip back before departing Chicago. Simply a must stop and make sure to get a tin if you're gift giving and bringing some home for later.

I have visited Garret’s on several occasions and my only issue are the lines that often are out the doors. I don’t mind having orange “Garret’s “ fingers.

My favorite popcorn. Had this once in NYC and knew it was a Chicago institution. When visiting Chicago, be sure to stop in and try some popcorn at one of the various locations. Love the caramel popcorn and the Chicago mix.

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.

The earlier, the better. However, there is usually a line out the door. Don't fret, it moves pretty fast. It is worth the wait!

PS, Garrett Mix used to be called Chicago Mix. I asked them what they called it in other Cities, they claimed Chicago Mix. Guess they caved. Now Garrett Mix, cheese and caramel. WARNING, the cheese is greasy. If you start... More
