Jul 23th, 2015 Comments (0)

Whether Saint or Rebel – Pioneer Day offers the chance to stock up and sample a smorgasbord of Utah eats and treats.

For the Utah Pantry:

  • Flour: A staple item for your favorite cookies, cakes, pies and cobblers - increase the authenticity of your favorite family dessert with artisan baking flour from Lehi Roller Mills.
  • SaltEnhance the flavor of your grilled meats or vegetables, with Utah's all-natural mined salt from Real Salt or Red Rock. The pure mineral promises a quality rarely found in other sea or processed salts.
  • Honey: Honor the industry, unity and sweetness of Utah by sampling some locally grown honey. Originally Utah was known as Deseret, a religious term that meant honey bee. Try searching for "honey" in the search bar located at the top of this page.

For the Sweet Celebration:

  • Taffy: A traditional and economical treat - many people nostalgically associate the summer gooey-ness with family and small town celebrations. Utah boasts two great taffy makers, both located in Salt Lake City: Sweets Candy Co and Taffy Town
  • Ice Cream & Novelties: If you're not interested in pulling out Grandma's homemade ice cream maker - enjoy the same traditional flavor with Farr's Ice Creams. Or if you're looking for an on-the-go option, savor the smoothness of a Creamie, made by Premium Ice Cream Co.

For the Unorthodox Mind:

Chapul Bars: An energy bar from cricket flour, this snack can help you reenact the seagull save. If you're unfamiliar with the Miracle of the Gulls story, you can read about it here.
