CHICAGO (June 2013)— Garrett Popcorn Shops releases its new keepsake Americana tin to perk up patriotic Independence Day picnics, and to score a perfect "tin" at summer parties. This red, white and blue tin comes in the one gallon size and features stars and Garrett Popcorn’s signature stripes in a beautiful, shimmering sheen. The new Americana tin is available online and in Shops including at Chicago’s historic Navy Pier.
"Nothing beats summer in our hometown Chicago, and our new Americana tins are a great way to commemorate the 2013 season," says Melissa Mikolajczak, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Garrett Popcorn Shops. "It is an especially great tin to go with our new limited time summer flavor Garrett KettleCorn."
Also this month, Garrett is asking their passionate and loyal fans to participate in some summer fun. The generations of fans are the most important part of Garrett’s history and traditions. After all, the notion of mixing savory CheeseCorn™ and sweet CaramelCrisp® together was a fan creation that resulted in The Chicago Mix. Garrett continues the tradition by inviting fans to share their ideas at http://www.garrettpopcorn.com/craftysayings/
for the next clever saying that will be featured on their Signature Stripes™ craft bags. The winning sayings will appear around the globe and online.
Garrett will collect fans’ ideas now through June 24 and then sift out the choicest kernels. Selected sayings will be shared on the Garrett website the following week. Fans can then return to cast their vote, beginning July 1, for their favorites and potentially the next famous saying. Winning submissions will receive special thanks via Twitter and Facebook.
Each saying should include a two-part phrase, be original, tasteful and enjoyable for Garrett Popcorn fans around the world. Here are a few examples:
