Back in the days (I feel so old!), popcorn usually came in 3 flavors: plain salted, buttered or cheese (the 3rd one being my most favovite.) But now, we see a prolifiration of "gourmet" popcorn shops invading the market. One of those offering these here in Singapore is Garrett Popcorn Shops.

Opened in 1949 in Chicago, USA, Garrett Popcorn Shops sell delicious gourmet air popped popcorn mixed in with a special blend of flavors made from secret family recipes (is it just me or is it beginning to sound like KFC?)

Here in Singapore, flavors offered include Plain, Buttery, CheeseCorn, CaramelCrisp, and The Chicago Mix (made up of a combination of CheeseCorn and CaramelCrisp.) Prices range from S$4 (Php130*) to 300+ (Php9,900*) depending on the bag/gallon size and flavor. Sizes range from small bags to 6.5 gallon tins.

Hubby loves their CaramelCrisp flavor. Not too sweet and kernels are popped to perfection (no hard unpopped pieces here, folks.)
Just look at all those popped kernels generously coated with caramel...yummy! And believe me, every single one of those things come as soaked as these.
The Chicago Mix is the best seller. Salty and sweet at the same time, it's truly addicting.
Popcorn from Garrett's is truly a taste sensation.
