A recent trip to Chicago allowed me to reacquaint myself with Garrett popcorn. In my opinion, it's the best caramel popcorn in the world. My first sample, perhaps 15 years ago, was one of those moments when I realized that I'd never eaten the real thing before. The caramel is rich, buttery, and soft. And because they do such large volumes, it's incredibly fresh.
I flew Delta between Atlanta and Chicago. Delta's concourse isn't the most advanced at O'Hare. Since one of the goals of this trip was to get some Garrett's popcorn, I asked a passing stewardess who explained that I could just pop over to the United or American concourses to find a whole range of Chicago specialties. Thanks so much! It only took a few minutes and was a much more enjoyable way to spend some time waiting for my flight than, say, reading my email.
