Sticky Fingers Gourmet PopcornThe Loop
This family-owned popcorn spot has prime real estate right along Michigan Avenue where tourists can pop in for a snack. There's gourmet flavors such as caramel, white cheddar, butter, aged cheddar, moomoo cheese and carmel cashew, along with combo creations like the flavor called "Chicago's favorite popcorn" which mixes caramel and aged cheddar. The bright-red walls are covered with lengthy mirors, and 55-inch TVs hang overhead for those waiting in line -- during busy days, the spot will sell out from time to time. Popcorn comes in glossy packaging in sizes small, medium, large and even super size, which has special technology that can preserve the popcorn for more than a week.
