    Today's Best of Utah Food is in honor of the game this Friday against Utah State, since Gossner's Dairy is in Logan.

    Gossner's Rootbeer Milk

    All of Gossner's milk is UHT milk-in-a-box, which if you've lived the ex-pat life, you know as that Parmalat euro milk stuff. Most of their product goes to the US Military, they have the contract to provide UHT milk to soldiers all over the globe, except for the Persian Gulf, which goes to a Kuwaiti company. A few years ago, Gossner attempted to pressure the military to use their milk in combat zones, but unfortunately, the bills two staunchest supporters were Larry Craig R-ID (lewd conduct in mens restroom) and David Vitter R-LA (prostitution client).

    The Gossners are 7th generation dairy farmers, the first five generations in Switzerland, and the last 2 generations in Cache Valley by way of Wisconsin and the California. They get their milk from Utah, and own milk and cheese plants in Heyburn ID, El Centro CA, and Logan.

    Their milk comes in regular, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and rootbeer. There is no way UHT milk is going to compete with unprocessed dairy milk, and it tastes a little like canned milk. Their flavored milk is very sweet, and will only appeal to kids and adults who eat like kids. If you still eat Lucky Charms, drink orange fanta, and chew juicy fruit gum, you'll like the flavored milk.

    Rootbeer milk, however, has special qualities that deserve special mention. It tastes amazingly similar to Chai Tea Latte with extra cream and sugar. For a WOW-compliant treat, on a hot day, slowly heat up the rootbeer milk in a saucepan until it is at a gentle boil. Do not over heat. Pour over crushed ice. Add tapioca balls if desired.

    Additional note: Gosners also makes flavored squeaky cheese, garlic being the most delicious flavor. However, these bags of squeaky cheese are only available at the plant in Logan, so try some when you're in the area. Milk available at Maceys.

    The onion rings are the best I've ever had (possibly next to the old Brand X).

    I usually go for the bacon burger with onion rings.

    kouing aman, from Les Madeleines Patisserie and Café.

    It's spelled oddly, pronounced "Queen-A-Mon," and is described by the SLTrib as crack for pastry lovers. Made with fleur de sel dough, it's originally from Bretagne, France, and cost a whopping price of about $5 each.

    My coworker, who owns a gourmet chocolate factory in Ogden and knows her sweets, told me about this pastry and said it is to die for. I tried it, and yeah, to die for.

    If you place a lot of stock in textures of food, this is hard and crunchy and light and flaky and soft. All of it. Yum. I think its made of salt, sugar, butter, and a little dough.

    Burger Supreme $0.99 (after 8 pm) hamburgers.

    Best burger ever? No. But pretty dang good after an inramural BYU softball game.

    How did I miss this post? I was just reading some reviews about this place. Looks fantastic. I will check it out and report.

    Kouing aman seems to be the trendy pastry these days. Everyone around here seems to be doing a version. I really like them.

    In Salt Lake there are still only two places I know who do them, the aforementioned Madeleine and now Tony Caputo's. I wonder if some others will jump on the bandwagon.
    Kids in general these days seem more socially retarded...

    None of them date. They hang out. They text. They sit in the same car or room and don't say a word...they text. Then, they go home and whack off to internet porn.

    I think that's the sad truth about why these kids are retards.

    Les Madeleines has been doing them for years.

    Caputo's started a year or so ago.

    They claimed to me that the chief baker from LM had come to Caputos and that is why they now offered them.

    My wife and I thought them to be good, but not as good as LM. Caputo's seem a bit drier.

    Caputo's did make a strange but delicious suggestion when I also purchased some jamon serrano. Put some serrano on the kouing aman. When I raised my eyebrow, they actually cut up a kouing aman and sliced off another piece of serrano and handed it to me.

    Caputos is great about suggesting things and giving you a sample.

    Those kouing ammans are unbelievable, but I tremble to think about the fat/calorie content in one of them. It's got to be off the charts. They taste like butter and sugar and carmelized heaven.

    I'm from Springville and my mother lived in Salem. My girlfriend worked there for a while too. I ate there, on average, once a week. I'm slightly surprised that no one has mentioned the shadow fighter. It's good, of course, but I'm partial to cheeseburgers that contain bacon . I also just go straight for the chocolate shake. It's simple, I know. Living in South Korea comes with a lot of benefits and a lot of great food. Sometimes, though, I really need a good burger and a shake. ㅜ.ㅜ They just don't exist over here, even in Seoul.

    The Trolley was and always felt slightly overpriced. We always liked it though. Brand X was so bad-ass though.

    too bad it's dead.

    This place is old news in Utah, but I just tried their cookies for the first time a couple of weeks ago when I was visiting SLC and they are better than anything my mom or sister can make. My sister is a crazy good baker (she was a winner of the Los Angeles Times holiday cookie contest in 2011 beating out thousands of entrants) and even she gives the nod to the cookies at this place.

    My fav is the Vivianna, but their flavor of the month in December (Suzie) was also crazy good (a cherry cookie with dried cherries and chocolate chunks). The prices are a a little steep for a baked cookie or its dough, but it is worth it to me.

    I will be going there soon. That place looks amazing.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I got some of these at the bakery counter of a grocery store in Midway. The bakery counter was about to close, so they were nearly giving them away and we tried several variety. Unfortunately, due to the above the variety was limited. But they were all very good!

    $2.50 doesn't seem that nuts. $2.00 for macarons at some of the bakeries around here and they're half the size of that cookie.

    That's crazy () expensive for a cookie. I'll take a couple Granny B's out of the vending machine for that price.

    I ate at Talisker on Main in Park City a few months ago. I am pretty easy to please and would not consider myself a foodie. It was underwhelming to say the least.

    The problem Forage will have in a reader poll in SLC is its pricing. I think the old menu, with the three course option, with all of amuse bouche interludes, was a steal. Now, it's priced itself out of what a lot of Utahns are willing to pay for dinner.

    Incidentally, did anyone catch the Iron Chef with the chef at Forage (forgetting his name...)?
