This article is the fifth installment of our five-part series on foods you must have in summer. We couldn’t include a mention of every local food and eatery, but we would love to hear about your personal favorites in the comments below.

Let your taste buds lead the way on a summer road trip around the West, and you’ll discover forests brimming with wild berries, just-picked chiles drying in desert afternoons, and the melty bliss of fresh-fruit popsicles. Celebrate the bounty of the land and the diverse influences that come together to deliver regional twists on familiar favorites—think huckleberry milkshakes and green-chile cheeseburgers—as well as a few surprising new flavors. Reindeer hot dogs, anyone?

We hand-pick everything we recommend and select items through testing and reviews. Some products are sent to us free of charge with no incentive to offer a favorable review. We offer our unbiased opinions and do not accept compensation to review products. All items are in stock and prices are accurate at the time of publication. If you buy something through our links, we may earn a commission.
