GARRETT POPCORN SHOPS, a Chicago institution since 1949, strives to deliver to its loyal clientele hand-crafted, small batch gourmet Popcorn. We serve our loyal following by creating an unparalleled Popcorn experience one kernel at a time.

Producer Pat says... I happen to LOVE caramel corn but don't get to have it that often, but when I hard Garrett Popcorn Shops had come out with Chocolate Covered Caramel Corn I had to try it. I popped the top of my 1 Gallon tin and it was like I had died and gone to caramel corn heaven, the smell was so delightfully overwhelming that I had to sit down for a few minutes to compose myself. The tin is filled to the brim with both plain caramel corn and chocolate covered caramel corn, from the first bite to the last I was in a trance, the zombie apocalypse could have happened and I never would have known it, hands down the best caramel corn I have ever had.

When I say that the caramel corn is covered in chocolate, I'm not talking about a light little drizzle here and there, this stuff is BATHED in chocolate, emerging with a thick layer.

This stuff is definitely a diet buster but well worth it, let's be honest, who diets during the holidays anyway, that's why they invented new years resolutions. HIGHLY recommend.
