I am NEVER one to turn down popcorn so when my friend Angie told me to check out Garrett Popcorn while I was in Chicago (and I found that it was only a block away) and figured it was a must-do.
Within minutes of getting the suggestion, I was there. I was able to get in quickly, (the line wasn’t out the door…yet). Here’s what is even cooler, most of the popcorn is gluten-free. Check out the company’s nutritional information list for ingredients and additional allergen information. I am a purist — I don’t eat sweet popcorn. It has to be flavored with salt and on the rare occasion, butter. I chose the buttery flavor. It was really good and a small size was MORE than enough for me.
There are many other flavors: Plain, Cheesecorn, Kettle Corn, CaramelCrisp (or a combination of Cheesecorn and CaramelCrisp and that’s called the Chicago Mix), Cashew, Pecan, Macadamia or Almond CaramelCrisp. Also listed as gluten-free the two different kinds of popcorn balls they carry.
I was only in the shop for about 10 minutes but in the time I was there the line was suddenly out the door. Other people must love it too! So next time you’re in Chicago, you might want to stop by!
