The Popcorn Factory, Chicago's hometown purveyor of delicious popcorn and gourmet snacks for more than 30 years, is popping out a special gift in honor of Chicago's 176th birthday. For a limited time, three celebratory popcorn flavors, inspired by Chicago's favorite fare, will be available to foodies in the Second City and beyond. The featured flavors include savory Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Corn, salty Chicago Hot Dog Corn and sweet Chicago Chocolate Cheesecake Corn.

The Popcorn Factory believes that birthdays are best when shared with others and the Chicago Flavors popcorn tins are made to be shared. Indulge in your favorite Chicago treats in a whole new way, or gift the savory snack to family and friends near and far. The Chicago Flavors are available online at through March 31, 2013. The Popcorn Factory Limited-Edition Chicago Flavors include:

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Corn

There's nothing like the legendary taste of Chicago-style pizza. And there's nothing like The Popcorn Factory's Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Corn! Celebrate Chicago's reputation as the Pizza Capital of the World with crunchy corn loaded with tomato-y sauce, tangy mozzarella... all the monster flavor of a deep-dish pie.

Chicago Hot Dog Corn

Pay homage to the classic Chicago dog: a beefy kosher hotdog on a poppy seed bun with yellow mustard, green relish, chopped onion, tomato wedges, a pickle spear and celery salt (but never, ever ketchup)! Salty and oh-so-satisfying, Chicago Hot Dog Corn is loaded with memories.

Chicago Chocolate Cheesecake Corn

Cream-cheesy goodness with a cult-like following — the flavor Chicago made famous! Sink your teeth into Chicago Chocolate Cheesecake Corn and discover sweet white popcorn with fragrant vanilla, rich chocolate drizzle and crumbly chunks of graham crackers.

Each flavor is packed in our exclusive 3.5-gallon Chicago Skyline Watercolor Tin or in a 10-inch clear canister.
