Get one medium caramel and one small cheese! Flavor will explode in your mouth when you mix both! ❤❤❤

Love the Chicago mix or just the cheddar by itself! Sooooo good. But goes bad/stale super fast so make sure you get it and eat it all in same day!! 10/10 for sure

You definitely need to try This! The Garrett Mix is the best, cheese and Carmel corn. Brought this home for the family! Cheese is a little sticky in the fingers, but worth it!

Seems like the place to go to for popcorn. Nice size kernels, perfectly seasoned - in whatever flavor you choose.

I must say Im not a huge popcorn fan. You must get the Chicago mix, and it was definitely worth it. The mix of cheese and caramel is a very unique taste and marks this as my favorite popcorn mix.

I was told by a Chicago needed that this was a must place to visit. It was very busy and the line was to the door but moved quickly. The popcorn did not disappoint and I can see why this place is Iconic.

I suppose this is how their caramel popcorn is made, but it tasted burned to me. When caramelizing sugar there is a fine line between a deep rich caramelized flavor and burned. It tasted as though the caramel coating had been taken right to the line and that flavor was not pleasing to me.

Get the Cheese and Carmel mixed and your taste buds will sing. The only problem is that they don't serve a mini ba. After eating all the delicious meals in Chicago you really shouldn't eat a full bag of these tasty treats. We gave ours away to a homeless starving person sitting on one of the corners outside.

Thank Holly G

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
