Years ago, when Gene Siskel was still alive, and he and Ebert were on PBS, they did an episode explaining how they critiqued movies. One of Siskel's rituals was to go to his favorite popcorn store and have them mix up a half and half of caramel and cheese popcorn. Sounds disgusting, but God did it look good. I remember the caramel was a gooey mess that had to be stirred into the popcorn. He mentioned the Popcorn store in a Playboy interview once, but I lost the issue (Get married, and your Playboy collection is the first to go). Does anyone know the name of the Popcorn store and does it still exist, and is the quality still as good as Siskel raved? Or was it ever that good? I'm not going to Chicago anytime soon, but only Chowhounds would understand my curiousity.
