These 15 Iconic Foods in Utah Will Have Your Mouth Watering
Not only does Utah have stunning scenery…we also have some pretty tasty local food. Check out these 15 favorites!
1. Utah Scones
Our “scones” are more like frybread...put a little bit of honey butter on them, and they’re divine.
2. Bear Lake Raspberries
Succulent and sweet, Bear Lake raspberries are the best, hands down.
3. Fernwood Mint Sandwiches
If you grew up in Utah, you probably got these at Christmastime. They're addictive any time of the year.
4. Utah Tomatoes
Utah tomatoes have a distinctive taste—just the right blend of acidic and sweet.
5. Pastrami Burgers
Crown Burger claims that they were the first to combine a cheeseburger with tasty pastrami. Now it’s a Utah-wide treat.
6. Ice Cream Shakes
You can really find Utah’s version of shakes (creamy confections so thick you have to eat ‘em with a spoon) in every town in Utah—no matter how small.
7. Green Jello
Utahns used to be crazy about green Jello. It’s served less frequently now, but is still popular enough that we created a green Jello Olympic pin in 2002.
8. Utah Corn
The midwest might claim to have the best corn, but Utahns know better.
9. Dutch Oven Dinners
The dutch oven is Utah’s official cooking pot, so it stands to reason that our state is number 1 when it comes to dutch oven dinners.
10. Green River Melons
The sandy soil, hot days and cool nights of the Green River Valley make it the perfect site for growing the best melons in Utah.
11. Fry Sauce
Love it or hate it, fry sauce is a Utah thing.
12. Aggie Blue Mint Ice Cream
Utah State’s creamery makes this yummy ice cream with chunks of Oreo cookies and white chocolate chunks.
13. Brigham City Peaches
Bite into a sweet, juicy Utah peach and you’ll never eat a grocery store peach again.
14. Utah Honey
Utah produces some absolutely delicious honey. What do you expect? We're the Beehive State!
15. Funeral Potatoes
This amazing casserole is made with hash browns, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and cheese (and of course crushed potato chip topping). It’s not just for funerals!
