I'm not much of a popcorn eater. It gets stuck in your teeth, the flavor is never evenly distributed, random kernels are not popped. Garrett's Popcorn is absolutely perfect! Perfectly popped, perfectly even flavor and every kernel is popped and somehow nothing stuck in my teeth. We've never had Garrett's before but, because we kept finishing our evening snack bags, we bought some every night we were in Chicago! The best part for those if us who do not live near this gem...we can order online! Give it a try, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Pure deliciousness. The smell from anywhere near a shop will draw, make that pull or yank you in. MMMmmm freshly made gourmet popcorn that's simply the best. Try the caramel cashew or caramel pecan. Decadent.
