You may see people giving away FREE Popcorn today from the Popcorn Factory at various spots around Downtown. They’re celebrating Chicago’s 176 Birthday with three distinct flavors – Chicago-style Hot Dog, Chicago deep dish pizza and Chicago-style cheesecake.
I actually got to taste all three last week. The hot dog and pizza versions were unique and good and tasted like you would expect. Kind of weird but fun! The cheesecake didn’t exactly taste like cheesecake to me but the sweet and chocolate drizzle over it all definitely wasn’t a bad thing. I would eat it as a sweet treat.
If you’re not downtown but want to buy some you can find it all online at their site from March 4-31st. If you use the promotional code CB15 you can get 15% off. Could be a fun snack at your upcoming St Patrick’s Day party – you should have food with that booze!
