Garrett Gourmet Popcorn Review

Garrett popcorn is something of a Chicago institution.  You know how London has its pie and mash, Blackpool has its fish & chips, well Chicago has Garrett popcorn.  And I've been lucky enough to try some out for myself, as Garrett are soon to be launching in the UK.

When I mentioned online the fact I was tucking in to my tub of Chicago mix popcorn (a mind-melting combination of caramel and cheese popcorns, trust me, it works!), my American ex-pat friends got very jealous, until I told them about Garrett's forthcoming UK launch, which was met with the response "Best News Ever!"  Honestly, I didn't realise it was so good.  That's where I was wrong.

Chicago Mix
It really is rather lovely stuff, you know.  The kernels are a special variety unique to Garrett, air popped so there's less fat, and I don't think I spotted a single unpopped kernel in my popcorn, something of a record.  The caramel is sweet, without being excessively so, the cheese is sharp and full flavoured, and together, well it shouldn't work, but totally does.  I love sweet and savoury taste combinations, so this was right up my street.  The fact that Squeaky Daddy doesn't like popcorn, and Squeaky herself is a bit hesitant is all the better! Mine! And I don't have to share!

Your popcorn is served!
The information says that Garrett fans proudly show off their cheesy fingers, and I can believe that, the cheese powder does stain your hands a bit, not one to eat before an important meeting, or when wearing your wedding dress!  But I don't care about that, I'm a child of the 80's, Wotsit fingers were a way of life in my mis-spent youth.  Garrett prepare their popcorn instore fresh every day, and I can't wait to join the queue in London, because I've already finished my sample!

Pop along to to keep an eye out for their UK launch, it's going to be something amazing!
