    This stuff is terrific especially when it is fresh. The smell when you walk in any of the stores will make your mouth water. Messy, gooey but the best. Make sure you ask for a sample.

    A Chicago institution. Great popcorn. Just don't look at the nutritional info. I like a mix of caramel and cheese. Even if you don't buy or don't want to wait in line, enjoy the smell as you stroll by.

    All you have to do to find a Garrett in Chicago is to follow your nose. You can smell their outrageously delicious cheese, butter and caramel corn (and also see the line forming) from a block away! Make sure to take lots of napkins with you on your way out, though. The cheese and butter varieties will leave finger-licking good residue all over your hands.

    Garrett Popcorn brand needs no introduction. Yes, it IS as good as they say and they lines can be a bear at certain locations and certain times. There really is no one that does a better Chicago Mix of Cheddar and Caramel flavors.

    There's not a better snack stop to break up a long day of Chicago shopping. Every flavor of popcorn I've tried has been excellent. First time? Try the Chicago mix.

    Hands down my favorite place to buy caramel popcorn...to be more precise, their mixture with caramel popcorn and cheese popcorn is DA BOMB!!!! You'll notice the long line outside of Garrett's but it's worth the wait!

    Garrett's has fell completely off! I was just there this past Friday and bought seven bags of mixed popcorn got home only to eat some and it was stale! So disappointed I will not spend my money there in the future!

    At first I thought "what's the big deal - it's just popcorn. What's with the line down the street?" But it's GOOD and totally worth the line.

    It's like crack, and even in winter there's a line out the door, partly from it's popularity but mostly from the extremely slow service. They do three sorts of popcorn: buttered, caramel, and cheese. Get the "Chicago Mix" of cheese and caramel.

    My guiltiest of guilty pleasures, Garrett's Chicago Mix (caramel / cheese) is off the chain delicious. Seriously, you won't be able to stop after one handful.

    The absolute best in popcorn! Get the cheese and caramel. They are my favorites. The lines can get pretty long so watch out.

    You can't go to Chicago and not get Garrett's Popcorn. Don't waste
    Your time with a tin, get a bag of cheese corn and a bag of caramel. And then mix them. It's a perfect balance of salty and sweet.

    Tip: Grab plenty of napkins to help fight the orange fingers you will develop from the cheese popcorn.

    Oh, come on. Even if you don't have plans to go here, if you pass within a few blocks the smell will beckon you in. Kind of like the sirens in Greek (or was it Roman?) mythology only you won't die when you get here, you'll just enjoy delicious, delicious popcorn. The lines are ridiculously long in high tourist season, but it's honestly the best popcorn I've ever had. I'm sure you'll agree.

    Never go for chicago mix for the popcorns here. They just mix all the kinds and serve. I liked caramelized ones! It was one in its kind! Good in all!

    Do not ask for mix combination! In fact the pop corns are spectacular but in a single flavour, the caramel are the best!!!

    I LOVE this popcorn. The caramel one is delicious. They also have yummy cheddar cheese and other flavors, but the Caramel Corn is really amazing.

    I dare you to ignore the aroma of caramelcorn that drifts out of Garretts. Highly caloric ambrosial addicting danger. Mmmf. Cheese & Carmelcorn mix. Oh no.
