Every year, the American Cheese Society hosts a conference where more than 1,000 members come together for educational opportunities and an infamous awards ceremony to recognize the best dairy products in America! This year, more than 1,600 dairy products were tasted and evaluated in hopes of receiving an award among America’s finest creameries.

We are thrilled to announce that Tillamook Pepper Jack was voted America’s Best! It’s been a great year for Tillamook Pepper Jack; this fiery cheese also received a 2nd place award at the 2014 World Cheese Championship Contest®. Looking for a recipe with a spicy kick?

Natural Sour Cream should have won first prize, it's excellent. Very high quality product, no growth hormone in the milk or cream. Taste better than Darigold, Nancy's.

Hi Robert,
Thanks for your comment here on the blog. I'm glad to hear you enjoy our Natural Sour Cream! Maybe we'll claim 1st place next time around ;) Quality and taste are the most important things we can offer our consumers, so I'm really happy to hear that you've noticed the difference! Thanks for your support. Our farmer-owned co-op is so lucky to have consumers like you who advocate for us!

All the best,
Amalya of the Tillamook team
