Payson Fruit Growers

As a co-op of eight family farms, Payson Fruit Growers originally grew Montmorency cherries, a varietal that originated in Europe and found popularity in the America as “pie cherries,” a cherry renowned for its tartness and color. A staple of middle American cuisine, the market started to shift for cherry growers in the 1980s.

Seeing an opportunity in the dried fruit market, our owners started to experiment with drying the harvested pitted cherries. The tart Montmorency cherry is unique — firm and intensely red, and not as tart as you might think for our modern taste buds. Payson Fruit Growers discovered dried tart cherries were delicious incorporated into salads, covered in chocolate, or just eaten by the handful.

“We’ve been customers for several years and love the dried cherries as well as the chocolate covered cherries. I love the milk chocolate and my husband loves the dark chocolate cherries. I usually order them in the cool months, but i took a chance and ordered them in June, and they were perfect! We’re having a cool snap and they are packaged in foam, so they arrived perfect! They make wonderful gifts for the holidays, everyone just loves them!” – Rose Obrien, Google Review

Rooster’s Gourmet Popcorn

For most people, the smell of fresh popcorn in the air creates an undeniable urge to seek out the source and nibble on some warm buttery kernels. Movie theaters knew this when they decided to add popcorn to their movie going experience. Rooster’s Gourmet Popcorn not only takes this to the next level, but takes the realm of “gourmet” popcorn to out-of-this-world! We currently offer over 110 flavors in FIVE different categories; Savory, Candied, Nutty, Chocolate, and Platinum. We use REAL cheese in our Savory flavors to create scrumptious Buffalo Wing/Ranch, Cheddar, White Cheddar, Dill Pickle, Garlic Beer, Asian Fusion and many others. Candieds is our biggest category with at least four different Caramels and three different Kettles. Pina Colada and Coconut will take you away on a mini “mind-vacation” to the islands. Black Licorice and Banana are some of the owner’s favorites. Our Nutty category will drive you nuts and our Chocolates will settle the inner cravings of your tired soul. Key Lime Pie and Chocolate Cinnamon Bear are offered along side the more standard White Chocolate or Rooster’s Crunch(Caramel popcorn with milk and white chocolate drizzles). Peanut Butter Chocolate, Cookies & Cream, S’mores, and Salty Rooster make the experience at our store one-of-a-kind here in the state of Utah.

As a gourmet shop, we cater to the needs of our customers. We can color many of our popcorn flavors to match brand or event colors. We understand that when you give our popcorn away, it represents you or your company, as well as representing our company, so we take pride in BOTH by using quality products and keeping it fresh. From a simple gift for a friend or loved one, to hundreds of bags or tins filled with popcorn, we can make your customer/employee/marketing gifts an experience to remember.

Sampling is encouraged as you undertake the task of which ones to take home with you.

Lovely gift options for anyone who likes nuts in particular, but lots of other goodies too. Nice place. :)” – Bonnie Wright, Google Review

Western Nut Company is BEYOND unique! They have such a wide variety of everything from nuts to dried fruits to candy. I really liked the Porter music player as well! We came in for Pepitas nuts with Cajun seasoning but they only had three bags in stock and we needed six bags. So an employee offered to make us some! It took five minutes for us to get fresh nuts and they were to die for! Not to mention that the other employees were super kind. I could not believe how big this store was too! I love it here!” – Kylee Haslam, Google Review

Western Nut Company products are both fresh and delicious. The mixed nut boxes make great gifts. Their customer service is outstanding. I ordered my gifts on line this year, but don’t pass up the opportunity to visit their store in Salt Lake City, Utah.” – Rick Roper, Google Review
