I love the popcorn. Lines were long but move pretty quickly. The staff seemed frustrated when we went. Not sure if that was due to a long day since we came near the end but I expected happier service for spending $40+ just on popcorn.
Really amazing gourmet popcorn - the smell alone is so enticing. Was lucky enough to drop by when there wasn't a line, which is a rare occurrence. So much to choose from as far as flavors and sizes and other gifts as well. Price is a bit high for certain items but its well worth it. Accommodating staff.
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.
I was excited to visit this location on National Popcorn Day, February 19th and was very disappointed to learn Garrett doesn't celebrate that holiday. A popcorn store that doesn't celebrate National Popcorn Day... - no promotions, no limited-time flavors, no mention of the holiday.
However, the popcorn is great - not your usual caramel-smeared popcorn, but a truly gourmet delicacy. It's pricey, though!
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!
