The smell alone is intoxicating - from up to a block away! A uniquely Chicago experience since 1949. My favorite? The mix bag of cheese and caramel. This pocorn makes great gifts and can be shipped nearly anywhere!
Best popcorn I've ever had. I went in the pouring rain. I would definitely visit every time I go to Chicago. Lines can be long but the product is worth the wait. When traveling, I suggest to buy in tins because the popcorn keeps longer. Otherwise, I suggest you eat the popcorn within a couple days.
At 12pm we stood in line outside to get into the store. But the line wasn’t long and it moved fast. While you’re in line and/or waiting for your popcorn inside, you can get free samples of different flavors. I actually recommend trying the samples before you buy. (You can ask to try any flavor.) For me, a few cups of free sample was enough popcorn for the day—delicious as it is. My friends got the Garrett mix and the butter flavors.
