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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.

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.

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.
