Garrett's Popcorn – Good Stuff, Poor Wallet

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Let’s make a big deal about nothing. A really big deal about nothing. Ok, I guess it is something. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: Garrett’s Popcorn. Yes, this is what the hype is all about. Simple kernels of popcorn, popped, coated in tooth-rotting deliciousness and shipped to everyone who is willing to buy amazing popcorn. Because it really is amazing. Garrett’s popcorn comes in various sizes, starting at one gallon cans and working its way through the two gallon and three and a half gallon cans to jump to six and a half gallons. This experience is then enhanced with eye-catching, pointless, beautiful designs to decorate the tin can that contains the popcorn. The choices range from stripes to New York City to even Chicago White Sox. Oh, and did I mention that designs cost extra? They seem to forget to tell shoppers that, and I only found out by (after I was in my shopping cart) going back, chaining the design to the default, and learning that I saved three dollars. Ok, now we are bombarded with not one, not two, not even five, but nineflavors of popcorn, offering everything from plain to “The Chicago Mix – CaramelCrisp & CheeseCorn“. Ok, so let’s just say you took the plainest-design-single-gallon-plain-popcorn. How much do you think it will cost? Go, on guess! Well, I don’t know what you guessed, but I know how much it is. Cheapest is $26, and the prices go steadily up from there. Oh, I’m sorry, did I mention that shipping costs and extra $9.95?

Well, ok, so I just complained about the pricing. The fact of the matter is, I’m sure this popcorn tastes great, and I may even use it as a Christmas gift, but for $35.95 I could get an awful lot of Butter Lovers…
