Georgia working at the Tillamook Cheese Factory fudge counter

Georgia Wilson-Zuercher wears two hats—er, aprons—at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, spending half her work days as a prep cook in the Farmhouse Café and the other half behind the fudge counter, making delicious Tillamook fudge.

Seven days a week during peak visitor season, Tillamook fudge is made— with real Tillamook Butter— in two large pots. It’s then sold in containers or by the pound in fudge loaves, on tempting displays behind the glass counter.

Our most popular Tillamook Fudge - Peanut Butter Chocolate

The fudge team has created over 40 flavors – variations on vanilla, chocolate, and milk chocolate fudge. The most popular flavor is Peanut Butter Chocolate, except among little girls, who seem drawn to the pink-and-white Raspberry Cheesecake. The newest flavor is Candy Bliss, a vanilla-pecan-caramel-chocolate confection.

Tillamook Fudge beckons visitors behind the glass case at the Tillamook Cheese Factory

Georgia says Tillamook is one of the best companies a person could work for. When her husband passed away several years ago, “they were so good to me—they went above and beyond,” she says. And when she remarried, to childhood friend Stan, “everyone was very happy for me.” Georgia and Stan have three adult daughters and three grandchildren, happily living close by in the Pacific Northwest.

The highlight of making fudge, Georgia says, is seeing the results as each batch is finished. And over her 10 years at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, she’s enjoyed watching some of her coworkers grow up from teenagers to adults with their own kids. “It’s been fun to watch,” she says. “They’re really good people.”

“As far as I’m concerned, you couldn’t have a better job than this one,” she says.

I am a huge cheese fan. If you ever have any Italian recipes with cheese, please send them to me and I will link the recipe on my website to your website for at least one month. My recipe is currently for Italian omelettes with and without cheese.

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for reaching out to us! If you’re looking for Italian recipes, I think you’d love the Caprese Melt from Dave Danhi at the Grilled Cheese Truck. It’s melty, cheesy and delicious! Please let me know if you have more questions!

Thanks again,

I would like to know how to get your incredible fudge delivered to me and also can I get a list of all the different varieties you have. Toured you factory when we were there last week on our eclipse tour and bought some fudge. We live in San Jose, CA. so not convenient to go back to your factory to purchase more. Hope I can order using the numbers you provided.
Thank you,
Janet Hathaway
