And the Winner is… Garrett Popcorn Shops®, Exclusive Popcorn of the 85th Academy Awards

CHICAGO (February 2013)-  Garrett Popcorn Shops® has long been a favorite among stars who have been nominated or have won a coveted golden statuette, and this year Garrett was red carpet ready as the exclusive popcorn of the 85th Academy Awards. 

On Sunday, February 24 the film industry celebrated an evening of cinematic excellence with one of Hollywood’s favorite gourmet treats.  Backstage, nominees and presenters indulged in individual quart tins of Garrett Popcorn’s famous The Chicago Mix, a blend of rich, salty CheeseCornTM and sweet, sultry CaramelCrisp®.  Crew members, meanwhile, were able to scoop their Garrett snack from 6.5 gallon tins at their leisure. During the ceremony’s commercial breaks, Garrett was also passed around to the 3,000 guests at the Dolby Theatre by vintage-clad, 1940s-era cigarette girls.

The team at Garrett Popcorn Shops personally transported the popcorn to ensure maximum freshness and timeliness, with an arrival at midnight the day of the event. Garrett Popcorn Shops has been a partner to the Academy Awards for several years and is proud to continue the tradition.
