I've purchased popcorn for gifts a couple of times from Garrett, and I don't understand what the big deal is. The lines are horribly long at the Michigan Avenue location - around the holidays I once waited in line for over an hour! (I didn't have a choice... I had to bring the gift to a party that night.) People will wait that long and just buy a little one-serving bag, which I think is crazy! The cheese popcorn is a little greasy and VERY cheesy, but the caramel corn is good. Try the caramel corn with nuts mixed in .... big bucks, but people love it! Try the locations in the Loop to save yourself a little time.
