Utah tomatoes really do taste different (and much better) than those grown out-of-state. If you’re really lucky, you have a garden in your backyard. Go out, pick a tomato and bite right into it while it’s still warm from the sun. If you don’t have a garden, visit a farmers market or a produce stand to get your Utah tomatoes.
Head up to Bear Lake, where the temperature might be a little cooler and the raspberries are sweet and juicy.
3. Utah Shakes
We make our shakes thick and creamy here in Utah. Try a raspberry shake while you’re at Bear Lake (see above). Don’t forget to get a spoon...you’ll need one!
Sweet, Utah corn, slathered with butter, salt and pepper. You can boil it, or try grilling it!
5. Anything From A Utah Food Truck
Many Utah towns have at least one designated food truck night. Grab the family and head out the door to support local businesses, and keep your kitchen cool at the same time. These Utah entrepreneurs make some really delicious food.
Grab a Green River melon for your picnic, family reunion, or just because it’s hot outside and some cold, juicy melon sounds delicious!
When we posted our lists of Best Burgers in Utah, they went viral! Utahns love a good burger. Head to your favorite burger joint, or break out the grill and some locally-sourced Utah beef.
8. Aggie Blue Mint Ice Cream
Utahns LOVE ice cream! Utah State’s creamery makes Aggie Blue Mint, unique to our state. It’s a tasty blend of mint, white chocolate and Oreo cookies.
The whole Green Jello thing is really overrated, isn’t it? But let’s be honest...you’ll probably find yourself preparing (or eating) jello salad at a family reunion or picnic this summer. Which is OK, because Jello is actually a great summer food - it’s cool and slurpy and refreshing on a hot day.
Brigham City peaches are the best on the planet.
