Chicago 50-50

Popularized in the Midwest, we're not sure who first decided to try mixing Cheddar Cheese popcorn and Caramel Corn together, but we think that person should be given an award! Although not the most obvious flavor combination, this 50-50 popcorn blend is consistently one of the most asked for! There's just something sinfully decadent about how the creamy, savory flavors sneak in between the sweet crunchy ones. Give it a try – we’re willing to bet your taste buds will be in heaven!

Want to share this delicious flavor combination with friends and family? Check out our gift baskets and holiday tins. Choose Caramel Corn as one flavor and Cheddar Cheese popcorn as another, or get Chicago 50-50 and they’ll arrive already mixed and ready to enjoy! Whether it’s for someone’s birthday, 4th of July, or the winter holidays, you’ll find festive popcorn baskets and tins for every occasion. If you order online today, we make it easy to pick the flavors you think they’ll love. And that’s what makes Popcornopolis a fantastic gift for everyone on your list.

BE CAREFUL Review by Adam

I first experienced the "Chicago Mix" in the O'Hare Airport at a small kiosk there. The cheddar/caramel combo was recommended to me by a passer by. The only caution given, get extra napkins and buy the BIG bag. Two weeks later on my return trip, I found myself sprinting across the airport during a small layover in order to acquire more for my return trip. If you are on the fence about this flavor, rest assured, it'll knock your socks off!!! (Posted on 8/2/11)
...It's addictive. Delicious! Review by franbarr
Product rating first taste I thought, "this isn't for me". But as my taste buds warmed up, the interesting flavor combination really got me hooked. I'm ordering a lot more because it isn't available just everywhere. It is lo-cal isn't it? (Posted on 9/3/11)
Fantastic! Review by Jerrod

My wife and I were walking through the Excalibur in Las Vegas, Nevada when we came across the Popcornopolis store inside of the hotel. We walked in and immediately were offered free samples of the popcorn. We ended up buying the large cone of the 50/50 and could not believe how great tasting it was! It was a salty/sweet combo that we really enjoyed. I look forward to ordering more off of the website. Great job! (Posted on 9/12/11)

Yum-O! Very tasty! (Visit Williamsburg VA.) Couldn't make up mind to get one flavor or the other...sales person offered to combine them both in one cone! What a great treat!! Two great flavors together! O...I came home & ordered online more cones... the large ones! :-) (Posted on 11/28/11)
I wish I could get this in Canada Review by Krystal

I've had Chicago style popcorn before from Kernels in Canada and I thought that was awesome. I had Popcornopolis Chicago Style Popcorn at the Excalibur and it was LOVE!!! My fiancé who thought I was a complete nut job for ordering cheese and caramel together is now a total addict. We are going back to Vegas next month and my first stop will be Popcornopolis!!

Best Chicago mix I've had since leaving Chicago. Review by Justin in Indy
Product rating
I was looking online to order some proper Chicago-mix popcorn, but didn't want gallons of it, as it was just for me. Lucky me, I found a Popcornopolis in the local Mall. This is the best Chicago MIx I have had since leaving Chicago. Outstanding, was able to get a single 'cone' of it for $5.00, and fulfill the craving. It will be my #1 choice from now on, Whether going in person or ordering online. Just fantastic. My dilemma now will be the temptation to try the other flavors, or always get this sure-fire mix.

Odd combination but good Review by Whitney
Product rating
The first few bits of this flavor combination take some getting used to. At first I wasn't impressed but after some more chomping I became addicted. This is an odd but tasty combination of two completely different flavors. It wasn't love at first taste but it has grown into a craving. (Posted on 6/24/12)
Marvelous Review by lagleigh
Product rating
I have tried sooo many different popcorn vendors and Popcornopolis is the best. I accidentally stumbled upon this at a basketball game in OKC and boy was I hooked. I like to create my own Chicago mix using the white cheddar and caramel. I just can't stop eating it. I have recently discovered this popcorn is sold in a nearby Old Navy and yes I will go into the store just for the popcorn. When I enter, we all discuss how delicious it is. Loving it! Don't try it if you don't want to be hooked. (Posted on 10/22/13)
An unlikley favorite Review by camelotcrusade

50/50 has ended up being my favorite of all the Popcornopolis flavors. The savory cheddar blends perfectly with the light and sweet caramel. It's irresistible if you like sweet and salty. (Posted on 10/25/13)

Gift From Orthodotist Review by New Fan
Product rating
My awesome orthodontist gives his patients a cone of this on the big day of getting braces removed. Not being much of a popcorn eater, I almost declined the gift. I am so glad I didn't (I think)! I'm already thinking of Christmas gifts for family (and myself)! (Posted on 6/3/14)
Pretty Good Review by Lauren
Product rating
I live in Chicago--so I had steep and somewhat unrealistic expectations, but if you don't live in Chicago, then you can easily order this instead. I find that it isn't overpowering (the real-deal in Chi can be too much), instead this one is just the right balance of flavor without the overkill. (Posted on 6/12/14)
