Garrett Popcorn Shop NYC - Wed, 01/23/08 9:47 PM
I was walking near Madison Square Garden the other day and noticed there was a Garrett Popcorn Shop near the corner of 34th Street and 7th Avenue. Being familiar with it from Roadfood, I stopped in and got a medium "MIx". It's a pretty small shop without a lot of personality. I have never been to any of the ones in Chicago, so I don't know if I'm missing out on a "Roadfood" experience. Is there an atmosphere there or vibe from the staff that makes it what it is? Just curious.
Anyway, I started to nibble on the "Mix" on the subway ride home and became addicted in about 2 minutes flat. The combination of the CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn is an inspired deal and makes perfect sense. I though the CaramelCrisp had a slightly burnt taste to it which I love. And it's sweetness counterbalanced the salty CheeseCorn perfectly. Sorry, no camera on this trip.

I passed another Garrett's Popcorn on the east side last night, though it was already closed when I walked past it. It is on the corner of 5th Avenue and 46th Street. It looked inviting.
