The best! – I had to write because I can't stand for these old, negative reviews to be up in here. Some people might complain about the line, but it moves fast because these folks are working hard cranking out my Chicago Mix as fast as they can. They might forget to smile every now and then, but you can taste the love when you take a bite!

If you've never had it, Chicago Mix is cheese and caramel popcorn together and it's so good! Oprah ain't wrong about that. Go and check it out for yourself because you haven't had popcorn until you've had some Garrett's.

like a fine (popped and salted) wine. – My family is from Central, IL (Peoria area) and when I was younger, every trip we took to the Chicago vicinity would result in my brother and I elbow deep in cheese corn in the back seat for the three-hour drive home. I hadn't been back to Garrett's for like 5 years, but recently having moved up here, I gave way to nostalgic yearnings and stopped by for a bag of the Mix.

So did my youthful memories live up to a jaded adulthood reality? Without a doubt. And I don't know what happened, but I think it was even better. I never used to get the Mix, so that may have been the key, but either way, I will maintain those fond memories for the future Walker generation!

Rude service, and Cheese Corn is made with Cheese out of a box!!! – I will never go there again! Their staff are very indifferent and incredibly rude. It's a McDonald service at Cheese Cake Factory price. I also found out a little secret (from a former employee). Here's what Garrett won't tell you: they make their cheese corn with a cheese paste that has been chemically processed in the facory. It's full of transfat (e.g., Crisco), artificial color, artificial flavoring, and preservatives. It's a tier below CheezeWhizz. Oh yeah, it comes in a plastic TUB. To be specific, it's made by Gold Metal and it's chemical #2392 "Cheddar Gold". YUK, YUK, YUK!!!!!! they don't deliver on quality. Oprah must be getting paid a lot of $ for her endorsement b/c I am sure she doesn't eat chemicals like this.

Poor service and very mass market! – Their customer service is very very POOR and their popcorn is junk food quality. they just spend a lot of marketing $$$ to make us believe that it's "gourmet"...wahtever that means. Oprah sold out. as some of your might have heard, they opened a location in NYC last month. I wouldn't bet on lines forming in front of their NYC penn station location. It has not been very well received in NYC (neither by the locals nor the tourists). People living in a sophisticated, urban city do not want midwestern, mass- market popcorn.

Less of a line here... – Stand in line for finger-yellowing cheese corn, and warm, gooey caramel corn. The line at this location is thankfully less than the chaos at the Michigan Avenue location. If you get there early you may catch popcorn balls or cashew and pecan caramel corn, too. They also have tins to take home and the popcorn is offered in many different sized bags to suit any dietary need (or lack thereof).
