Hi there — Loafy here! I have the best job ever. Not only do I get to work for the best cheese company, but I get the chance to talk to all of Tillamook’s amazing fans through our Blog, Facebook, and Twitter, every day! What a great way for you all to show us Loaf Love, ask questions, and let us know how we’re doing. We have so many devoted fans out there, and every once in a while I run across a super fan — someone who just stands out and makes me smile bigger than ever. This month, that someone is Melissa, one of my most favorite Twitter followers. She just has a way with words (er, um, Tweets I mean) and I feel extra warm and cheesy whenever I hear from her. Here’s what Melissa had to say about being a Tillamook fan:
Q: How long have you been eating Tillamook dairy products? When did your “Loaf Love” for Tillamook begin?
A: I first started to fall in love with Tillamook cheese in the year of 2007. I had just moved out on my own and had to do all the grocrey shopping for the house. Something about Tillamook just caught my eye when cruising down the dairy aisle. Maybe it was the cute sail boat in your logo, I’ve always been the type of person to choose brands that I’ve never tried before. So maybe I was just simply curious! After my first purchase, I would slice the loaf every morning to make sandwiches for lunch. My LOAF LOVE was set on fire, I would never buy another brand again!
Q: What’s your favorite Tillamook product?
A: Medium Cheddar is my obsession. I would love to try the Garlic White Cheddar one day, I have yet to find it in my local grocery stores. That’s why I cannot wait to take my trip up to the Tillamook Factory one of these days!
Q: What are you doing when you’re not eating Tillamook products? What are your hobbies?
A: I hardly ever stop eating my favorite Tillamook products! But when I do, and when the weather is nice, I enjoy hiking and exploring new beach fronts to watch the sunset, while eating Tilla-moos of course! And cooking!! A big time hobby of mine! Dining at restaurants, hole in the wall diners and local eateries, food trucks I’ve never experienced before — is a big part of my hobby list, which allows me to run my Facebook Group page – Fatkid Code. Tillamook is always featured on my page, because if I’m not cooking with Tillamook Cheese, I’m eating it.
Q: Why do you like following Loafy on Twitter?
A: Lets be real, LOAFY is amazing! Always replying to my tweets and showing how much Tillamook appreciates their fans! Being able to share my Tillamook stories or pictures with Loafy via Twitter has made me become an even BIGGER Fan of Tillamook.
Q: Anything else you can share about your love for Tillamook?
Seeing your emails always make me smile. If you have not noticed I loaf Tilla-moos, and always have a pack of sliced cheddar at work. If I’m not eating it slice by slice, I’m pairing it with crackers or homemade hamburgers! I love the “Know Your Cheese” game online, and also appreciate the recipes section of your website! All in all I LOVE Tillamook products and the company as a whole. Your fun vibe and easy going approach allows your fans to interact and smile when they hear Tillamook, which is breath of fresh air. Thanks Loafy and Tillamook for making me Fan of the Month, I am honored, this is one of the most cheesetastic things that has ever happened to me!!
Thanks for being the Tillamook Cheese Fan of the Month, Melissa! I sent a tasty gift box your way!
