Raising the Bar

Raising the Bar

Utah County may be the only place where, when your friends say, “Let’s get drinks,” they mean sodas. If you’re out on the prowl for places to go, here’s a list of our favorites—plus some snacks and special treats!





Try: Are you feeling an Eternal Companion—or maybe a Civil Marriage?

Why: So many options, such great drink names.



Try: Cloud 9: a dreamy combination of coconut, pineapple, blue raspberry, and Mountain Dew with a splash of cream.

Why: It tastes like heaven!



Try: Beauty School Dropout: pineapple meets coconut with strawberry puree topped off with a dollop of whipped cream all mixed in a cool Dr. Pepper.

Why: It’s a serious drink experience.





Try: Red Velvet Chip™: luxurious, rich, and satisfying.

Why: It’s delivery or pickup—the perfect way to satisfy your cookie cravings!


Crumbl Cookies

Try: Muddy Buddy: a gooey, delicious peanut butter cookie topped with chocolate frosting and some Chex™ Muddy Buddies™!

Why: The rotating weekly menu makes choosing a cookie an adventure every time.


Ice Cream and Froyo


Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream

Try: Magnetic Mint: mint and fudge ice cream, Oreos, and Andes mints.

Why: Liquid nitrogen is used to mix your ice cream, which is fun and extra cool!


Rockwell Ice Cream

Try: Rockwell Road: a dark chocolate ice cream base swirled through with marshmallow, with pieces of almond brittle mixed in for an extra crunch.

Why: It’s made in-house daily, so it’s super fresh and deliciously gourmet.


Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt

Try: Takes the Cake Batter: a classic base upon which you can build your own froyo masterpiece.

Why: Add your favorite toppings. So. Many. Toppings.


If none of these places do it for you, you can always just go home and go to bed early!
