Best Soup in Utah

With the dropping temperatures, you know that we had to do a taste off kit testing some of the best soup in Utah. There’s nothing better than being in a comfy sweater and eating delicious soup on a cold night. We did all of the footwork for you, and have narrowed it down to some of the best tasting soups, and even better, they are all made by local restaurants! Grab your comfiest sweater, and get your soup on tonight!

In our taste off kit, we put 6 different soups from 6 different vendors to the test. We asked that everyone that participated rate each soup based on taste, texture, and appearance, and we have definitely found a winner! The taste test looked like this on the placemat.

  1. Blue Lemon: Tomato Bisque
  2. Cravings Bistro: Chicken Tortilla Soup
  3. Village Baker: Broccoli & Cheese Soup
  4. Kneaders: Italian Pasta with Turkey Sausage
  5. La Jolla Groves: Butternut Squash

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 […]
