Me and my cake…Yum!

Have you ever seen a surprised loaf of cheese?

Well, let me tell you, I was about as surprised as they come on February 13 (our official founding day) when I was invited to the Cheese Factory where about 150 of my friends and family (employees and member-owners and their families) gathered for a party to celebrate Tillamook County Creamery Association’s 104th birthday, and I was the special guest of honor!

We had birthday cake and any flavor of Tillamook Ice Cream a loaf could want! We played games like Beanie Cow Toss, Spin the Wheel, Pick-a-Milk-Bottle, and a family favorite, Bingo!

It’s not every day that a company turns 104, so it was sure nice to stop and recognize the hard work and dedication that everyone at TCCA puts into every product that is sold on store shelves!

One of my good friends having a good time playing Bingo!

My BFF Tillie even stopped by!

Everyone signed a giant birthday card for me, I’m hanging it on my wall!

The cake, it looks just like me!

If this is year 104 then my 85th anniversary Cheddar would be 22 years old in that it was aged for three years prior to it's release for the 85th anniversary. I believe that I have about two cases left. To put words to the taste would be a fool's errand. I believe I have at least a dozen bricks of your marvelous Swiss that has been residing in the back of one of my refrigerators for a few years. The cheddar with a Portugese red 1951 Caves Vilas makes the wait an act of love, smile.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TILLAMOOK; I sorely miss your ice cream.
