Oprah likes Utah’s Pop Art Snacks

Utah’s Pop Art Snacks, makers of gourmet flavored popcorn such as rosemary with Italian truffles and Thai coconut curry, are featured in the August issue of "O, The Oprah Magazine." Pop Art’s nori sesame popcorn, one of six flavors the company makes, was named "The Find!" of the month. Made with toasted seaweed and sesame seed, editors praised the popcorn for being "rich in umami, the undefinable savory quality — also found in mushroom and cheeses — that makes these flavors so deliciously addictive." Pop Art is sold in stores across the country and in Utah. Find a location at popartsnacks.com. A 5-ounce bag costs around $4.50

Winning gelato at Grand America

Good taste runs in the Caputo family. Mary Caputo — wife of Tony and mother of Matt who operate Tony Caputo’s Market and Deli in Salt Lake City — is the winner of the Grand America’s summer gelato contest. Her Orange Mango Mimosa flavor will be on sale in the hotel’s La Bonne Vie shop through Labor Day. Earlier this month, the Grand America asked fans to suggest new summer gelato flavor combinations. Judges selected the three finalist and produced a batch of each flavor so customers could sample and vote. ‘Suite Dreams’ by Maddie Merril and ‘Mediterranean Summer’ by Deanah Navarra, were also finalist.

Where » La Bonne Vie inside the Grand America Hotel, 555 S. Main, Salt Lake City

Open » Monday - Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
