Have you ever heard of Fat Boys, Creamies, Goldfish Crackers, or Cafe Ibis Coffee? You might be surprised to learn that these and many other well-known foods are produced right in Cache Valley, Utah. And the fun part is many of these stores offer their products at a discount.
Here is a planned tour for you to take starting from the south end of Logan, Utah, working north to Richmond, Utah. (Check out the map at the end of the post.)
Be sure to bring your cooler to keep your goodies chilled. You’re going to come home with a lot of great deals! And if you need a place to stay during your epic food tour, one of the best hotels in the valley is Comfort Inn and Suites.
Or check out this 3 Bedroom lodge that sits on a river in Smithfield Canyon, a gorgeous part of Cache Valley. My husband grew up across the street from this home so I can attest to its beauty.
This small, charming gift shop is located on the south end of Cache Valley. They sell raw honey from their very own bees in a multitude of flavors and varieties including, creamed honey and honey-butter. You’ll also find fudge, gourmet popcorn, and tons of other tempting treats. I like coming here to find fabulous gifts for family, friends (or myself).

Gossner’s Cheese Factory
When I lived in Logan, I used to buy all of my cheese here. The cheese is made at the factory on-site, and they sell the imperfect cuts for cheap. Their most popular item is cheese curds – squeaky lumps of cheesy goodness. Gossner’s also sells milk you can store on the shelf, honey and jams, and hand-dipped ice cream.

Heart To Heart Foods
My MIL keeps her freezer stocked with these delicious creamy popsicles. It’s a hit with the grandkids! You can get several varieties of Creamies here for cheap, but the real bargain is the Creamie Seconds for just $0.25 apiece. They also have great deals on ice cream bars, Juicies, and ice cream in a carton.

Shari Alvey learned to make candy from her grandma using old family recipes and techniques. She started out making four candy bars – Cherry Supreme, Double Dip Mint, Peanut Supreme, and Caramel Nut. Today Alvey’s Chocolates offers a full line of chocolate candies. You can buy them in the Cache Valley Mall, but they sell their seconds in the Richmond factory where they are made. (While they last.)

Pepperidge Farm Outlet
I visit this outlet every time I come to Cache Valley because who doesn’t like giant bags of Goldfish and Milano Cookies for cheap? They also sell regular bags of all their cookies and crackers for a great price. I often find a new flavor here that I haven’t seen in the store like the tasty Salt & Vinegar Goldfish we found last time. There’s plenty of other good finds here like frozen soups and bread.

Casper’s Malt Shoppe
Enjoy an ice cream treat at this last stop. Casper’s Malt Shoppe offers banana splits, shakes, sundaes, and cones. They also sell Fat Boy Seconds, so prepare to stock up because they are the BEST ice cream treats around. If you can’t make it here, stop by my MIL’s freezer, you be able to find all the Fat Boys and Creamies you’ll need. She knows how to keep her grandkids happy.

Be sure to check before going to the outlet stores. Some are now closed due to Covid 19. Pepperidge Farms is no longer open.
This is good advice! Thank you!
March of 2022- they’re open now 😀
I’m glad you like it!
Awesome! We will be in Utah in April. I will definitely keep these in mind!
Awesome! Hope you have a great trip!
Thanks so much! I’m glad you like it!
I enjoy cheese. I would really like to visit the Gossner’s Cheese Factory.
That’s one of my favorites. They always have samples too.
Now this is the type of tour I would enjoy! Yum!
I can’t even tell you how many cartons of goldfish haven been consumed in our house since my kids were toddlers. They love them, even at 18 and 14. LOL. I love all the little shops here. I could spend hours browsing.
Grown women here and I still love those Goldfish! Yes, lots of cute shops.
Yum! I would get full real quick on this tour! Love the idea of trying different goldfish and cookie flavors.
It is fun. Pepperidge Farm has some great snacks!
This looks really fun! I had no idea they were located there!
They probably have more factories across the country, but it’s fun to have one close enough to visit.
I used to love the Goldfish crackers as a kid, fun to know where they came from!
Great list! I have visited the cheese factory and Pepperidge Farm, but I need to try the other places. Especially the two ice cream places. Yum!
If you like ice cream, Aggie Creamery is a great spot too!
How fun that all these food factory tours are so close together!! Days of adventure!
Thank you for making this list! It will be fun to visit each of these places during the summer when school is out 🙂
Your kids would love it. Don’t forget to hit Aggie Ice Cream and The Chocolate Factory. I have a couple more posts coming out about Logan.
I would love to spend a day going to eat of these places and rolling away at the end of the day.
Rolling away at the end of the day. I love it!
Lots of great food options
Thank you 🙂
Utah is near the top of my list because of its beautiful canyons and national parks. And now this?! A factory outlet food tour! That’s so awesome…of course now I’m wanting a midnight snack. Pining this for later reference!
There really is a lot to see in Utah. And the terrain is so diverse from the North of the state to the south.
I am going to have to make a trip up north for this food tour. My best friend lives in Logan.
Logan is such a cool college town. Definitely check out the shops on Federal Avenue.
Candy, cheecse, AND coffee?!?!?! This would be a must stop in Utah for me! Yum!
Yes! And Cafe Ibis has fantastic coffee!
I’ve never had the opportunity to explore Utah, but outlets are good anywhere! 😀
Yes please. Sign me up for all of it. Especially the candy co, coffee stop and that lower foods!!
You got it! 🙂
Your pictures of all the food are sort of killing me. Like…i need a burger, some fudge, candy, cheese, a hagen daaz bar…
I know right? It includes all the important food groups.
This looks like a fun place to check out. I’d love to try all the chocolate and cheese! And the Pepperidge Farm store looks really cute, too.
I LOVE the Pepperidge Farm store. Really homey inside, but fun to visit.
Who knew? I love the Pepperidge Farm store … ohhhh the carbs!
One giant bag of goldfish never hurt anyone. 🙂
Looks like a really fun outlet! Like the theme too
Thank you! Glad you liked it.
My daughter was just commenting the other day about how Goldfish Crackers are the one snack that my mom always made sure she had when we came to visit. I think I would walk away from a food tour like this feeling very happy…and VERY full! 🙂
Grandma know best!
You had me at food. Photos look amazing. I’m starving now. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for reading!
This looks like a super place to visit. i love shopping in places that are an experience and not just a store.
Yes! Me too!!
That is a neat idea to have places to visit relating to food.
Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing it.
I love this!! I’m planning a trip through Utah to visit the national parks and I want to add this to our itinerary!
If you’re in the area, I’d definitely recommend hitting some of these spots.
Awesome post! Keep up the great work! 🙂
