The Chicago popcorn chain is a huge tourist magnet, but secretly, even locals love the stuff. The Garrett Mix is the way to go, as the combination of cheese and caramel popcorn marries salty and sweet. Head there beween opening and lunch time to avoid the long wait.

Prepare to stand in a long line, no matter what location or what time of day! But totally worth it - try the Chicago mix (combination of cheese and caramel - it's addicting!) The employees are really good about giving samples of others as well. I take this home to my family every holiday (and now they all expect it). Trust me, it's not overrated. 


Chicago is unique in that its touristy stores/restaurants are some of its best, and Garrett's definitely falls under this category. I don't think anyone can argue that Garrett's has sone of if not the best popcorn in the world. They carmel corn is a perfect mix between being not to hard but not too soft, and their cheese popcorn is out of this world (but be careful, it will dye your fingers orange for a couple days, I recommending using a spoon!)
