WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Romney (R-UT) served a selection of his home-state foods at a lunch he hosted today for his fellow Republican senators. Jayson Edwards, founder and owner of JDawgs in Provo, flew in from Utah with his gourmet hot dogs to personally grill for the group. At lunch, Jayson served the senators JDawgs with their signature “Special Sauce” and assorted toppings, which were accompanied by a selection of Pioneer Chips, including the flavor “Funeral Potatoes.” The senators enjoyed a dessert of Graham Canyon ice cream, mint brownies, and chocolate milk from the Brigham Young University Creamery.
After the lunch, Romney sent his colleagues home with a gift bag of assorted products highlighting Utah’s diverse food industry, including JDawgs “Special Sauce” from Provo, Heber Valley Cheese from Midway, Utah Honey from Ogden, Utah Truffles from Lindon, Apple Beer from Holladay, and Montie’s chocolate-covered dried tart cherries from Payson and Santaquin.
