If you think all grocery stores are the same, you may change your mind after visiting the Harmons at Bangerter Crossing. Harmons is a local Utah chain of grocery stores, and this is their "flagship" store. Just walking through the front doors will "wow" you!

Inside, you will find amazing gourmet bakery items, an impressive selection of fresh produce, hundreds of different imported cheeses, food buffets prepared by professional chefs, flower displays, made-from-scratch deli items, hand-drawn signs exploding with color, and (our favorite) homemade gelato in a dozen different flavors.

My best friend took me here to taste my first gelato. And I took my husband here to get his first taste, too. Now we're happily hooked. (Our favorite: half blood orange, half pink grapefruit.) Now it is your turn to discover the gelato at Harmons!

Directions: From I-15, take the Bangerter Highway exit (#289) and head east. Harmons will be in the shopping center immediately off the exit to the south of the road.

The gelato counter will be to your right from the store entryway. Before picking out your treat, look behind the gelato counter, down along the windows. You will see the stairway that leads to a seating area upstairs. Go over and sit on the third step, on the side closest to the windows. Allow your left hand to surreptitiously fall between the wall and the outside portion of the staircase. Your hand should encounter a mini-box under the staircase edge.

Take the box over with you while you order your gelato. You can stamp at one of the little tables while you enjoy creamy frozen goodness. Or, for more privacy, you can continue upstairs to the seating area to find a quiet spot to stamp. Don't forget to take some time to wander through this incredible grocery store-- you won't be disappointed!


  1. That store is incredible. I recommend going upstairs to eat. I think my kids had a sample of every flavor before we settled on pina colada. It is so good. That is a really creative spot for a box. The kids were fighting over who got to get it and put it back.

  2. We loved this. The gelato was so good (our first time) and the box was so cute. My boys now ask for GreenJello everytime we go letterboxing because you are so reliable. Thanks!

  3. We just went and weren't able to find the box. Our neighbors had found it fall 2012 so it must have just been removed.
