When I arrived in Chicago and asked my friends, what Chicago’s specialties were, they all suggested that I try Chicago popcorn. It’s a mix of cheese popcorn with caramel corn, sweet and savoury. One evening I went to a friends and brought up that I wanted to try Chicago popcorn and he just happened to have bought a bag from Costco that day.
What luck. We opened a bag and I could not stop eating them. We realized that the caramel corn is heavier and tends to fall near the bottom of the bag and the cheese floats at the top. For future reference, I’ll give the bag a good shake before pouring the popcorn into a bowl.
The brand G.H. Creates, that is sold at Costco uses non-GMO corn and only natural ingredients without gluten ingredients. I was happy to find it at my Costco at home. I actually ate a bowl while writing this post. It is quite reasonably priced at about $7 for a 737 gram bag.
If you are in Chicago and want to try the best Chicago popcorn, go to Garret Popcorn shop around the city. They make their popcorn fresh and also use non-GMO corn, no preservatives and are gluten free. They have many flavours with nuts and now ship to Canada.
