JulieAnn Caramels

We want to tell you about JulieAnn Caramels, a local candy company that specializes in caramel.

JulieAnn Caramels are made with fresh cream, real butter and all-natural wholesome ingredients. Every batch is hand stirred to ensure the highest quality and flavor.

We love the original caramel flavor but also enjoyed some of the new flavor combinations. Some of our favorites include cinnamon, vanilla, lemon, chocolate, maple and cashew. There are so many different flavors that we have yet to try like caramel apple, raspberry, pumpkin, peppermint and more.

Julie Ann Caramels also offers gift baskets, specialty orders and of course these to die for caramel rice krispie treats.

You can purchase from Julie Ann Caramels online or through other local retailers like Western Nut. Check for more locations here.

Utah Children's Theatre and Zorro

By Kim Cracroft

Tucked away on State Street is an amazing acting theatre company called Utah's Children's Theatre "UCT".  A couple weeks ago I was able to hit the Jackpot visiting this place and finding out what this place is all about!    Young actors and actress with incredible talent grace the stages putting on productions like Rapunzel, Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe, and I was able to catch Zorro, which was amazing.  Zorro was repelling into center stage and the sword fights were my favorite!  My family ranged from young to old and each and everyone of us loved every single minute!  The stage may be small in size but the Actors and actresses bring big talent!

As you walk in the double doors of this hip theatre you are welcomed by the ticket box office and to the side there is a concessions stand where they sell yummy treats and drinks!  This place has it all.  During the summer months they offer camps for your budding artists!  Feel free to make a donation anytime to this local theatre.  Just head on over to their website  Do not wait to go and visit this wonderful place!  Make it a priority to go and support the growing Utah Children's Theatre.

The Fix: Speciality Drinks and Homemade Sugar Cookies

Have you heard about The Fix in Draper? They serve up some of the best specialty fountain drinks around. They use syrups and delicious purees to create tasty beverages.

The Fix has a full menu of specialty drinks that you have got to try! 
Some of our favorites include  

Princess Peach (Lemonade + Peach, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Fresh Limes) 
Voltron (Mtn Dew + Raspberry, Strawberry, Blackberry) 
Pink Panther (half Sprite/ half Lemonade + Strawberry Puree) 
Strawberry Lime Rickey. Which isn't on the menu, but was probably the best one I have ever had.

They will make any drink to your specifications, so don't worry if it isn't on the menu. The Fix also offers a few sugar free syrup options.

Not only does The Fix make delicious drinks, but they also make some amazing cookies! Owner Karissa bakes these super soft cookies from her family recipe that has been passed down for generations.  The Traditional Sugar Cookies and the (new) Coco Creme Cookies will have you hooked! Trust us, we were hooked at one bite.

The Fix is located inside the Chevron on Draper Parkway. You can go inside or use their convenient drive thru. You can also pre-order The Fix cookies for your next party or get together. Give them a call to place your order and ask about special designs and colors.

Another really cool thing about The Fix are their metal mugs and glass growlers. You can refill them for a small price. The growlers are perfect for parties, picnics, family dinners, baby and bridal showers, movie nights and just about any event you need to bring a tasty drink.

We took our growler, a few cookies, and a blanket outside for a little picnic play date.
There are so many ways you can use your growler. Take a specialty drink to a sick friend, bring along to your kids little league games, have a few growlers with different flavors at your next birthday party, teacher appreciation gifts, the list goes on.

Needless to say, we love The Fix!
