Using natural ingredients and recipes derived from four generations of candy making, Hall's Confections bakes, cooks, and drizzles chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel to create a bevy of bonbons. Hall's Groupon-specific extra-large treat crate offers a candied cornucopia, including one bag of caramel corn, four squares of fudge, one package of puffed corn, one package of apple bites, four rice crispy bars, two popcorn balls, and two chocolate marshmallow pops. This symphony of sugars is safely secured from the sticky wingtips of its postal pigeon carriers in one of Hall's wooden crates, glossily adorned with cellophane and a large bow. Sweet-toothed Sallys and Simons may also opt to sample six pieces of Hall's specialty fudge, choosing between milk chocolate, rocky road, peanut butter, and pecan flavors, or stack multiple squares to create an exponentially decadent sandwich.
A Rocky Mountain horizon peaks over the roof of Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge's glass-walled showroom as glimmering rows of new and preowned autos file neatly into the spaces of an expansive lot. Tucked inside the service department, mechanics outfit cars with everything from OEM auto parts to sips of oil and fresh new filters. Convenient Saturday hours also allow hurried businesspeople to avoid stressing out in between going to work and taking shark-taming classes.
Each day, Café Bella Rue’s Italian chef crafts 34 types of gelato and sorbetto that span the flavor gamut, blending everything from traditional panna cotta and pistachio to milk chocolate with whiskey. The kitchen staffers extend this playful mix of tradition and ingenuity to the rest of the menu, handcrafting a lineup of distinctive sandwiches, pizzas, calzones, and salads, all composed of fresh, surprising ingredients, such as pears, capers, and hunks of buffalo mozzarella. They aren’t afraid to stray from the written ingredients to accommodate customers, either, swapping out focaccia for gluten-free bread upon request and enhancing already stellar panini with jalapeño jelly, chipotle sauce, or cleverly hidden stacks of $100 bills.
In addition, baristas brew up a slew of beverages, including hot chocolate and affogatos. Guests can sip these expertly prepared concoctions on leather sofas encircling a 20-foot fireplace, or can retreat to the outdoor patio to soak up the sounds of live music drifting over from Oquirrh Lake.
