I see why I heard the name even before I had visited this place. The popcorn was so fresh, sweet and the selections were plenty! I think my boyfriend and I went crazy buying popcorn packages and tote bags.lol

The smell of the fresh caramel corn draws you in. It is consistently excellent and has lots of varieties to choose from. The cheese corn is superior too.

There is no trip to Chicago without one or two stops to Garrett's popcorn. How there popcorn can be soooo much better than any other popcorn amazes me!! My favorite is the Garrett mix of caramel corn and cheese popcorn. But I always bring a couple extra bags home with me. They do also sell plain and buttery popcorn, but... More

We always buy the Chicago Mix of cheese and carmel corn-sweet and salty all in one. There's usually a line out the door but it moves quickly. You can send it to out of town friends as well.

Garrett Popcorn on the 7th floor of the Water Tower Place is the perfect snack to eat while walking around the mall or to take back to your hotel room or home. Get the Chicago mix which is cheesy cheddar & caramel. It is so good but don't forget to take extra napkins for your hands. If there is a... More

On the advice of the guy behind the count we tried a few choices... and decided to buy almost every choice in the shop! The caramel corn mix with cheese popcorn is outstanding. Almonds... pecans, cashew... you can't go wrong. No way did I think I'd buy that. Very fresh and tasty. I loved the Chicago style pizza we had,... More

One of my favorite treats from Chicago! The sweet Carmel corn mixed with the salty cheddar popcorn is delightful. Not to mention the butter popcorn is just as tasty. They also have popcorn with nuts and just a nut mix that a protein teaser. Happy snacking!

Thank Loving L
