Macadamia CaramelCrisp ($9.00 for small bag)
Who would ever expected popcorn to be that exquisite that this gourmet outlet would just spruce all over town in a flash? Every time I walk by a Garrett popcorn shop, I’d marvel at the long queue of people who are willing to pay a substantial amount of money for some corn kernels. Until one day, I couldn’t resist the smell of popped corn, caramel and butter in the air that I told my husband, “We just have to grab one bag to try”. We picked the macadamia one.
And the verdict? It is worth every penny we spent. Every freshly popped corn was well coated with the sweet caramel and coupled with a generous serving of macadamia nuts. The nuts came in halves and wholes, not just bits and pieces. This popcorn wasn’t anything like what we could get at movie theatres. They came in chunks (stuck together due to the thick sticky caramel) and tasted really crispy and fresh. It’s a addictive snack! Do note the caramel is very sweet and you can get a little sickly from eating too much but still, it’s a must-try. Best snack for movie goers!
Garrett's is definitely addictive! I live in Chicago, where there's a Garrett's on every corner. If you ever make it back, you should try the caramel/cheese mix — it's a bit of a weird combo, but it's actually quite delicious.
