Garrett Popcorn Shop – I can almost smell the carmel corn just sitting here thinking about it. Garrett’s makes small batches all day long – so whenever you stop by, you always get fresh, hot, gooey carmel corn. There’s nothing quite like it – It’s (one of) my guilty pleasures when I’m in Chicago. It’s delicious when it’s hot, but it’s great when it cools down too. It’s definitely worth getting out of your hotel room for – your e-mail will still be there when you get back!
There are several shops throughout the city (http://www.garrettpopcorn.com/) – but I like the one on Randolph near the State Street shopping area anchored by Macy’s (formerly Marshall Fields) and Carson Pirie Scott which makes the area a destination all its own. Garrett’s carmel corn is just an added bonus.
