Name the one Utah food that "anyone, anywhere" would love to receive this Christmas.
A bottle of pink fry sauce, of course.
Utah's unique dipping sauce — specifically the one sold by Salt Lake City's Hires Big H — was selected to represent Utah in a new "50 States, 50 Food Gifts" listing.
Utah fry sauce joins birch syrup from Alaska, tamales from Arizona, Key lime pie from Florida and bison from Wyoming on the list, published in the December issue of Food Network Magazine now on newsstands.
"In this state, where there are fries, there's fry sauce," editors wrote about the Utah condiment, which was invented in the 1940s by the founder of Arctic Circle restaurant — a Hires competitor. (Arctic Circle won The Salt Lake Tribune's fry sauce taste test last year.)
