As long as I’ve been a fan of Tillamook Cheese I’ve also been a fan of The Price Is Right! Recently the Loaf Love Tour crew decided to get tickets to attend the famous game show while in LA. When I got the confirmation email with my name printed on the ticket I couldn’t contain my excitement! Most big groups of people who attend the show wear matching t-shirts that explain where they came from. We really wanted to wear our Tillamook shirts but you’re not allowed to wear branded shirts. Jammin Jason got creative and still figured out a way to represent his cheesiness on a homemade t-shirt.
There is a four hour wait before you get on set for the show. During that time you make many new friends with fellow Price Is Right audience members and the CBS crew. People asked where we traveled from for the show and most of us replied “we give away Tillamook Cheese for a living and we’re in the area for that!” Automatically you see the jealousy in their eyes: “You travel the country, give away cheese, and get to do things like go on game shows!? Wait a minute…I love Tillamook Cheese, please tell me you brought us some cheese?!” Yep it’s true folks, but sorry, we don’t carry it in our pockets (it might melt too fast in the LA heat)! Some of the CBS employees even asked if they could join the tour!
Even when we’re not working, no matter where we go, what we’re doing, somehow we always share our love of Tillamook Cheese with everyone we encounter. Unfortunately, no one from our group got to “come on down” but we did get to sit front and center in the audience! Between the enthusiasm for The Price Is Right and Tillamook Cheese, it’s safe to say that day at the CBS studio was the happiest place on earth for me!
