My class of students all got super excited when I bought Garrett Popcorn for them, all finished within minutes. Fortunately, I grabbed a handful and found myself uncontrollably munching them while grading. Oops!
It was my early Christmas gift to them since school holidays are coming soon, and they enjoyed it too much. Case in point…
What will make a good Christmas gift? Something sweet, something attractive, and something the whole family will enjoy.
Every time I walk past this particular section at City Link Mall, the buttery sweet-caramel aroma from Garrett Popcorn will just tempt me to get a packet.
Then I noticed, just for this season, Garrett Popcorn has introduced a new flavour of Cocoa CaramelCrisp – best for those who enjoy a combination of both dark tantalising cocoa and deliciously sweet caramel.
Plus, the popcorn is housed in these limited edition thematic Holiday tins that make attractive presents to families, friends and co-workers for gift-exchanges. (I know of some friends who keep these tins for storage, especially the signature red and green ones, after the popcorn is finished.)
Here are 10 interesting facts about Garrett Popcorn:
Created In 1949
The Garrett family opened the first popcorn shop in Chicago on September 18, 1949.
Garrett Popcorn Shops can be found in New York, Las Vegas, Detroit, Atlanta, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, Kuwait, Thailand and South Korea.
Made Fresh Daily
No wonder it tastes so good – every batch that is sold in Singapore is made fresh daily with premium ingredients! Did I mention that it’s handmade?
Hot Air Popped
See those copper kettles at the back of every Garrett Popcorn outlet? These is where the blend of kernels is hot air popped, mixed with the secret family recipe. All in small batches to maintain freshness, too.
Garrett Popcorn flavours
Garrett Popcorn flavours include Plain, Buttery, CheeseCorn, CaramelCrisp, Cashew CaramelCrisp, Almond CaramelCrisp, Macadamia CaramelCrisp and The Chicago Mix. Not forgetting the seasonal flavours from time to time.
I really like the Chicago mix, and I’m happy to say that the public agrees with me! Chicago Mix, a blend of sweet sand salty, is the best-selling flavour. It is a blend of CaramelCrisp with that brown sugar and crème brûlée crunch, and savoury CheeseCorn stirred with cheddar cheese.
Chicago Mix Fan-Sourced
p/s: Did you know that the Chicago Mix is fan-sourced? Back in the day, customers used to request for 3 bags in the past, one each for CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn, and the last empty bag to mix it in themselves. Genius!
Limited edition holiday flavour
The new Cocoa CaramelCrisp has a chocolate-y spin on the classic CaramelCrisp, combining buttery sweetness of caramel with the dark flavours of cocoa.
Word of warning: This is really quite addictive. Initially you get that sweet brown sugar notes, after that the deep, dark chocolate flavour starts kicking in. It is like getting the best of best world.
Only available through December 31, so get it fast!
Create your tin
The Garrett Popcorn tins make attractive and tasty presents which you can customise – pick the tin size (1-Quart and 1-Gallon tins), tin design and the flavours. Tah-dah!
Other than the signature blue, the festive specials include the classy silvery “White Warmth” design, Christmassy red and green “Signature Holiday” and baby blue “Signature Snowflake”. The Holiday tins are available in 1-Quart and 1-Gallon tins.
I like the Snowflake design best. (No prize for guessing what my favourite colour is. Unfortunately, I just got word that the Winter Warmth tins are selling out fast, so make haste!)
The Garrett Popcorn Holiday tins are now available at promotional pricelist of 2 Quart Bundle at $29.00 (Signature Flavours), and 1 Quart + 1 Gallon Bundle at $48.00 (Signature Flavours) .
(Note: Top-ups required to upgrade Quart and Gallon tins to Nuts CaramelCrisp or Cocoa CaramelCrisp.)
