A Golden Prosperous Chinese New Year with Garrett Popcorn

Garrett Popcorn Shops® Brings Sweetness to You with CNY Festive Tins

Festive season is all about sharing precious moments together, creating new memories and of course indulge in all sort of goodies! This Chinese New Year (CNY), it’s the year of the Red Fire Monkey and Garrett Popcorn is celebrating this season with specially designed festive 2016 Year of the Monkey Tins decorated with auspicious red stripes and whimsical monkey motifs.

Garrett Popcorn, a Chicago tradition since 1949 from USA, has always been a gourmet popcorn favorite of mine and my family. The reasons are purely simple. Every batch of Garrett Popcorn is handmade daily, using traditional methods, in copper kettles. Ingredients are of the finest quality and there are no preservatives. Once you have had a taste of Garrett Popcorn, you’ll know that there’s no other gourmet popcorn like this one. The crunch factor coupled with the various flavours are one-of-a-kind.

Sharing and gifting this season is simply a must for my family. During CNY, we love to have an excuse to nibble on our favorite cookies and snacks. In fact, I always have an assortment of CNY goodies on my table way even before we ring in the festive season. This brings back such fond memories of my childhood as I would always wait for each CNY to be able to indulge in all sorts of goodies. Glad to say, I do not have to wait a whole new year now to enjoy these but CNY is still a perfectly good excuse enjoy and share some sweetness with family and friends.

Ever since I had my first taste of Garrett Popcorn, I have been an ardent fan of this gourmet snack. They say once you have had the best, there’s no turning back. A recipe handed down over three generations, it’s obvious that Garrett Popcorn must be doing something deliciously right.

Garrett Popcorn’s signature has always been the Chicago Mix – a luscious sweet and salty mixture of CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn. There is something just so tempting with combining layers of crunchy caramelized glazed popcorn with fluffy cheesy popcorn. It’s the mix of sweet and savory that brings dessert to another level of tempting flavours. Besides the Chicago Mix, there’s also Buttery or Nut CaramelCrisp.

Joining in the festive cheers, my family and I simply cannot resist including Garrett Popcorn on our table this season. As soon as my little one spies the signature logo and Tin of Garrett Popcorn on our dining table, he would literally be asking for a taste. I don’t blame him… can you?

There’s something truly happy about digging into a Garrett Tin of golden popcorn nuggets that always looked utterly tempting and sublime….

Take Garrett Popcorn for a road trip for extra happiness!

Garrett Popcorn makes the perfect indulgence and so we often are tempted to take the Tin everywhere with us. We took ours to the park where we had our little own popcorn picnic. It was our little perfect moment of walking a little and enjoying a little snack as we watch the sun goes down in the evening.

Sometimes in the evening while catching up on a little movie action, off goes the lid of Garrett Popcorn and someone’s little hand would be grabbing a handful of popcorn with much cheekiness. The deep luscious buttery and caramel note combined with cheesy corn can certainly put a big smile on anyone’s face… certainly mine and my family…

I daresay, Garrett Popcorn is great anytime of the day. Grab a Tin of Garrett Popcorn wherever you go or share this deliciousness with your family and friends this CNY and put a big smile of sweetness on their faces with this gourmet popcorn!
