Test Test – Which is Best?

Duluth Mix PopcornJust like their namesake’s cities Chicago Mix® and Duluth Mix popcorn enjoy some tasty commonalities and delightful differences.

Chicago and Duluth both have big ports that bring in and ship out tons of goods throughout the year.

The dueling popcorns both share savory cheese and sweet caramel flavors.

Both cities are major tourist destinations within their respective states.

Both popcorns were conceived and perfected in Minnesota.

That’s right Chicago Mix® was originally invented by Stillwater’s Candyland. Despite what the name would lead you to believe.

And the differences?

Duluth Minnesota is surrounded by natural beauty, miles of hiking and biking trails, and epic Lake Superior shoreline.

Chicago is surrounded by suburbs.

But what about the popcorn? Keep reading, my friend.

What is Chicago Mix® Popcorn?

In 1988 the team at Candyland invented and trademarked the signature combination of their traditionally seasoned popcorn, cheese-flavored popcorn, and caramel corn. It was a hit.

If you love the three-way of sweet, buttery and savory flavors – then try our Trio Mix featuring our special recipe theater popcorn, cheddar cheese popcorn, and caramel corn.

What is Duluth Mix Popcorn?

In the early 2000’s Fannie Rose Candy Shop (now Duluth Candy Company) introduced their signature Duluth Mix.

The blend is a pure, refined savory and sweet combo of cheddar cheese and caramel flavored gourmet popcorn.

We’re not saying the triple flavored Chicago Mix® recipe is too complex or less delicious. If we did – we wouldn’t have developed our own Trio Mix. We’re saying that sometimes – you don’t want to complicate things.

Which mix tastes better?

Perhaps we’re not in the best position to fairly judge. So you tell us!

Swing into our Duluth, MN store and sample our Trio Mix and Duluth Mix. You be the judge of which mix is superior!

Alternatively, order a small bag of our Duluth Mix online. If you don’t think it’s amazing or tastier than the classic three flavored combo – we’ll give you a complete refund. No questions asked.
