Fall Flavored Cookies

Our most recent kits have definitely followed a theme, so having fall flavored cookies was an obvious choice for a taste off kit! We went to some of our favorite cookie vendors and asked them to come up with the most fall flavored and/or themed cookie they could think of, and they all delivered! Just check out these delicious treats!

  1. Goodly Cookies: Apple Pie Cookie
  2. The Chocolate: Pumpkin Cookie with Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting
  3. The Dessert Studio: Loaded Caramel Apple Cookie
  4. The Cookie Crave: Reese’s Explosion Cookies
  5. Smart Cookie: Almond Sugar Cookie
  6. Utah Cakes & Sweets: Maple Buttercream Sugar Cookies 🍁

In our opinion, any one of these cookies could have been the winner. They were all delicious and full of flavor! All of these cookies are only available seasonally, so it was a big hit to be able to try all of them in one kit! That being said, the votes don’t lie and only one is considered the winner of our fall flavored cookies taste […]

Best Mac & Cheese in Utah

Our kit that put the best mac & cheese in Utah to the test might be one of our best ones yet. It was savory, cheesy, and flavorful! We heard from people all over telling us about the family BBQ’s and date nights that this kit was a big part of, and they all loved it! We can’t decide if we like the savory or the sweet kits better, so we will just keep both coming!

This week, 6 vendors put their best mac & cheese to the test in our take home kits. This was a first where we asked you to bake the mac & cheese at home, but it was worth it for the fresh taste! This is what your placemat should have looked like.

  1. Station 22
  2. Wallaby’s Smokehouse
  3. Good Thyme Eatery
  4. Five Star BBQ
  5. Craving’s Bistro
  6. Zulu Grille

It was a tough call to decide whether the best mac & cheese had bacon, crumbles, or sauce on the top, but in the end, your votes found a winner! The restaurant with the […]

Fall Flavored Cupcakes

Last week was a real treat when we tested 6 different fall flavored cupcakes in our taste off kits! All of the familiar fall flavors were there–pumpkin, apple cider, pecan, cinnamon spice–and they all combined to make the perfect cupcake flavors! A big thanks to our 6 different vendors for joining in the fun. This is how the cupcakes should have looked placed on the placemat.

  1. So Baked– Pecan Pie
  2. Kenzie’s Cakery– Churro
  3. The Sweet Tooth Fairy– Pumpkin Spice
  4. Cakes De Fleur– Caramel Apple Spice
  5. Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes– Pumpkin Chocolate Chip
  6. Carisa’s Cake Company– Maple Brown Sugar

Every single one of these cupcakes was packed with tons of flavor, and the frosting to cupcake ratio on some of these was perfection. In the end, there could only be one winner, and that award goes to…Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes!! After participating in our taste off kits several times, Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes have now been named the best in Utah. If you have a craving for some festive pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes, you know the best place to get them […]

Best Cinnamon Rolls in Utah

The task of finding the best cinnamon rolls in Utah was not one we took lightly. We know all too well the comfort and feeling of home that a good cinnamon roll can bring, and we really wanted to make sure that was the feeling that went into our kits this week.

This kit was our most popular to date! We sold out so quickly, and it wasn’t for a lack of quantity. Our vendors made almost 10,000 cinnamon rolls to fill our taste off kits this week! Think about all of the love that went into making those! Let’s take a look at our vendors this week.

I know the real reason you came here is because you want to know which one was the best. Without further ado, the winner with the title of the Best Cinnamon Roll in Utah is……Lehi […]

Best Eclairs in Utah – Taste Off

We decided to put some of the best eclairs in Utah to the test to find out who would be the best of the best, and we have the results! Thanks to everyone that bought the eclairs and then sent in their votes, we can tell you which one is the highest rated in terms of taste, texture, and appearance. (Obviously, all of the most important qualities when it comes to food.)

Before we get to which one is the best, let’s talk about the vendors that provided the eclairs. This is what your place mat should have looked like.

#1 Kneaders – Provo
#2 Schmidts Pastry Cottage
#3 Eclair French Pastry
#4 Carols Pastry Shop
#5 Bowmans Market
#6 BYU Catering

Each eclair was classically made with pâte à choux dough, rich pastry cream, and chocolate ganache frosting. But the best part was that no two eclairs were the same, which made for a delicious taste off.
