Dee Dee R.
Hi guys! My name is Dee Dee! I am so excited to be a part of the Loaf Love Tour and represent a company from Oregon that I truly love! I can’t wait to share the products that I enjoy with the West Coast! I have enjoyed Tillamook products all my life. My favorite Tillamook product is the Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Pair that with a Summer Sausage on a Ritz crackers and Yummmm it’s tasty! Our team will be hitting many cities up and down the West Coast and I can’t wait to rollerblade the boardwalks of California! Perhaps wearing a Tillamook shirt while rollerblading? You might just see me! You can follow me on Twitter @CheesyDeeLLT! Tweet Me! I’d love to hear from you!


I’m back and ready as I’ll ever be for part two of the Loaf Love Tour 2013! Since the beginning of the tour in February a few things have changed; I have a slight southern drawl when I speak, my skin has acquired a ‘Texan’ glow, and I fell in loaf with Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese! Being in Texas for a few months was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to get back into the Yums and continue sharing my love and appreciation for Tillamook. Remember if you’re in Texas you can follow my cheesy adventures via Twitter @Elidacheese!


Hunter R.
Hey cheese fans, I’m Hot Habanero Hunter. I grew up in Bend, Oregon so I’ve been raised on delicious Tillamook Cheese. My first word was even “Cheese!” I still remember how stoked I was to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory when I was 10 so I could sample the best ice cream in the world. I love blending up creamy milkshakes with Tillamook. When I’m not shredding cheese I’m shredding snow at the mountain. I love the outdoors and I can’t wait to cover the beautiful landscape of California in Tillamook Cheese! See you on the road!


Inge P.
Hello, I’m Inge from Newberg, Oregon. After a long day, I like to treat myself to a big scoop of Tillamook S’mores Ice Cream. I’ve been eating Tillamook products as long as I can remember and I’ll be a Tilla-fan for life! I love talking out of town visitors into visiting the Tillamook Cheese Factory and stocking up on Squeaky Cheese. I also believe that no sandwich is complete without a slice (or 2) of Medium Cheddar. When I’m not eating cheese, I’m usually doing cartwheels over hot coals, drawing with sidewalk chalk on dry erase boards or doing cannonballs into the pool while hula-hooping seven hula-hoops at a time.


Johnathan R.
Hey hey everyone! Jon here, an all-natural Oregonian raised on the best cheese in the world – Tillamook! Whether with apple slices, on sandos (excuse me, sandwiches…), or throwing an entire baby loaf in my backpack and whittling pieces off with a knife, I’ve been blessed with Tillamook Cheese my whole life. I actually used to take bites straight out of a baby loaf of my favorite vintage white!! When I’m not cracking cheesy puns, I love exploring the world, building things and meeting new people, so I’m excited to drop into Texas, don some boots, and share the loaf love with you straight from the source!


Hey-Oh! This is Lia Loaf checking in for the Loaf Love Tour. I’m super excited to put Tillamook Cheese into Texan mouths! I have my roots in the Pacific Northwest and Wisconsin, so I have the love for cheese flowing in my veins. My favorite Tillamook Cheeses are the Hot Habanero Jack Cheese and famous Tillamook Squeaky Cheese. I love eating my cheese as a treat with some fruit and tea while I check my social media, watch TV for the latest news or play some video games. I’m also a big foodie! I’m super excited to create Tillamook memories with you!


Matt M.
Monterey Matt checking in from Portland getting all excited to hit the road and visit y’all! I have grown up on Tillamook my entire life and am ready to share some of my memories and experiences with you and hope you will share in return. Tillamook Cheese goes best on nacho cheese chips melted in the microwave or on a juicy burger piled high with an egg and bacon. When I am not sharing all my knowledge about Tillamook, I will be enjoying the sunshine in Southern California, spring training in Arizona, and attending many, many country concerts wherever they are. Some favorites include Brad Paisley, Eric Church, and of course George Strait. I can’t wait to hit the road and see all your smiling faces after I give you the most amazing cheese. Here’s to a great Loaf Love Tour 2013!!!


Molly P.
Hey everyone! My name is Molly and I am so excited to travel through California bringing people delicious Tillamook Cheese ! I’ve been eating Tillamook products my whole life and can’t wait to share my favorites. I love Medium Cheddar slices on sandwiches, shreds on tacos, chunks cut up on crackers, or just by its self. When I take a break from eating and sharing Tillamook I will be exploring the beautiful beaches of California and maybe finding a great hiking trial or a cool place to rock climb. Stay cheesy California!


Pakou X.
*Waves* Greetings Tillamook Lovers! My name is Pakou and I’ll be on the road spreading the Loaf Love! I was first introduced to Tillamook Cheese and all of their dairy goodies when I moved to Portland, Oregon from Northern California. Since cheese was not something that was a part of my culture, I grew up thinking that processed cheese was real cheese. Boy was I wrong, and once I learned the difference, I haven’t gone back! Tillamook is about the only cheese you’ll find in our refrigerator these days! This is my second year on tour, so I look forward to catching up with people that I’ve met last year and meeting with new people! See you all soon!


Rachael E.
Hello all my cheesy people! My name is Rachael and I am a home grown Oregonian who has been devouring delicious Tillamook Cheese since the beginning. You can find me this fall in the Lone Star State sharing my love of Tillamook and eating way too much spicy Pepper Jack. When I’m not eating cheese or splurging on Tillamook Rocky Road Ice Cream , you can catch me checking out the sights as I tear up the road training for my next marathon. I can’t wait to meet all our Texas Tillamook enthusiasts and create some new Tillamook Cheese lifers along the way.


Shelby J.
Hi there, I’m Shelby! And I am crazy in love with Tillamook Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese…we were introduced by a friend a few years ago and I’m certain I’ve found the Loaf of my life. I’ve been eating Tillamook Cheese for 24 years. I was raised on this stuff and will raise my own family on this stuff. Cheese makes everything better, and makes its way into just about every other, if not every dish that I make, I can’t help it, I LOAF the taste! Not to mention, I am a health nut and Tillamook Cheese  is natural, WIN! I will eat cheese any way, but my favorite is melted in and over a hot dish of chicken enchiladas with a creamy white sauce, both topped and filled with cheesey goodness. Apart from my love for food and cooking, I am totally Oregon made, I love the outdoors!! I crave adventure and spontaneity, and will jump at any opportunity to do something I’ve never tried before – minus sky diving. One of my favorite recent adventures was going spear fishing in Hawaii! What are your favorite adventures and loaf love stories? Let me know on Twitter @shellBEsharp. Catch ya lata!


Sierra S.
Hello my fellow Tillamook lovers! My name is Sierra and I will be touring with you on our Loaf Love Tour this fall! I have been eating cheese since I was a wee one, and my I like my cheese SPICY! I love mixing Pepper Jack and Medium Cheddar on a grilled cheese sandwich to give it a little extra something delicious. When I am not sampling cheese, I love to be outdoors and enjoying nature at its finest. I can’t wait to explore California with my Tillafamily! I look forward to seeing you all in the cheese aisle!
