Garrett Japan’s sakura popcorn tin celebrates cherry blossom season

By Jess, grape Japan

Garrett’s gourmet popcorn brand was first established in Chicago, but it found another home in Japan, where outrageously long queues became a fixture of their Harajuku branch every weekend.

The popcorn purveyors managed to fit right in with the snack landscape of the country by conforming to the demand for limited-time-only and seasonal flavors, not to mention the beautifully designed tins that can be bought to house your interestingly-flavored popcorn. For New Year they debuted an especially fancy flavor, Matcha Truffle Caramel Crisp, along with a limited edition souvenir tin adorned with seasonally-appropriate Japanese motifs such as plum blossom.

Just like clockwork, the sakura-inspired treats are starting to show up, and Garrett Popcorn aren’t one to sit out this important season.


For their sakura-themed offering they’ve gone with Berry Berry White Chocolate popcorn. This sweet and tart strawberry flavor gives the snack a cherry blossom-esque hue which should put anyone instantly in the spring mood.


But if this saccharine and fruity flavor doesn’t appeal to you, there’s a range of other flavors that can be served in the special souvenir tin.

For the tin’s design, a light pink has been contrasted with gold stripes for the background and copious amounts of sakura flowers bloom in the foreground.


Both the Berry Berry White Chocolate flavor popcorn and the Garrett Sakura tin are limited time only, and will be on sale in Garrett branches (which can be found in Tokyo, Chiba, Nagoya and Osaka) from Feb 15 until April 15.

Although I generally prefer plain popcorn popped at home with a bit of butter, I think this is one of the very rare occasions that I wish I still lived down in Tokyo so I could have a chance of getting ahold of this item. I fancy the cans too.
