Help. I've discovered Garrett's Gourmet Popcorn. Chicagoans, you know the place on Michigan Avenue with the line out the door everyday? On this past Friday night, the stars aligned, and there was Garrett's, and there was us, and there was no line.
My Dad and Momma were with us (oh joy!) for a fun little weekend, and they treated us to a big bag of the caramel corn, and a small bag of the caramel corn with almonds. Oh. Oh. Oh, my. The words warm, buttery, carmel-y, melt-in-your-mouth would be apt, if words are appropriate at all in that moment.
A few blocks down, we stopped into the Apple Store, and I'm pretty sure I just stood in the middle of the store with my sticky fingers, continually eating my caramel corn and making the techy, clean Apple people nervous. Don't worry Apple people. I don't want to touch the I-Pad. Not when I can hold this bag of Garrett's instead.
I think the thing that has got me out of bed for the past few days is the fact that I know the Garrett's bag is still there. Okay, maybe that's a little obsessive, so pretend I didn't say that.
But this is what it looked like around our house all weekend.
Blessed sight, day in and day out until today when the bottom of the bag finally appeared. It went out with a bang, as a fantastic after-groceries snack. Best post-groceries snack I've ever had.
So, here's the digs: www.garrettpopcorn.com. Just don't click on the "nutritional information" tab on the sidebar. Why would you do that?
