Garrett's Popcorn is a Chicago institution and a must-visit for anyone new to the city -- or for anyone really. Buy the Chicago Mix -- a phenomenal combination of cheese and caramel popcorn. To die for!

If you are in Chicago and pass a Garret Popcorn shop, you HAVE to stop and get some. It is soooooo good!

We stayed next to this shop and wanted to get some popcorn but the lines were ALWAYS out the door and down the street. I'm sure it's great but I didn't want to wait in line...sorry

Very good, plenty of great choices. Make sure to grab a few extra napkins, the cheese popcorn is really cheesy!

We received a coupon from a travel book for a free sample of popcorn. We tried the Chicago mix and were not disappointed! I am craving more already! Be prepared to stand in line, because everyone else loves it to! It is worth the wait!!

We stopped here for some caramel corn. The tin prices were heinous (over $30 for the smallest) so we just got some in a bag. While my husband liked it very much, I told him that I found the caramel to be bitter. He assured...More

The best way to describe the taste of the caramel popcorn is bitter, sour and burnt. Have you ever had a cup of coffee that has been sitting on a burner for several hours? It's tarry, it's burnt and no matter how much sugar you...More

It lives up to it's name. The Chicago mix is great. You get some of all of what they have. A tad expensive but worth the money.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

The earlier, the better. However, there is usually a line out the door. Don't fret, it moves pretty fast. It is worth the wait!

PS, Garrett Mix used to be called Chicago Mix. I asked them what they called it in other Cities, they claimed Chicago Mix. Guess they caved. Now Garrett Mix, cheese and caramel. WARNING, the cheese is greasy. If you start... More
