Hi Laura! Not sure why that happened. We have been receiving emails to this email address all day. Anyway, I just sent you an email from my email address. If you don't see it, try checking your spam folder.

I will be picking up some Tillamook this week and taking photos of my 2 year old. He loves Ice cream so much he will ask for it for Breakfast. Would love to even win the tour for me and the kids would be a great summer outing.

Sure wish we could get Tillamook ice cream and yogurt here in MI! We miss living in Portland and stopping in for ice cream at the Cheese Factory on our trips to the coast.

Hi Deb! We'd love for our products to be in every fridge in every state! Right now, our ice cream and yogurt are mostly available in the Western part of the country. Come back to visit us in Oregon for a taste!

My wife and I have been known to drive from home near Vancouver, Washington, to Tillamook, Oregon, just to get a triple scoop ice cream cone and samples of cheese at the Tillamook creamery visitor center! Marionberry Pie, Udderly Chocolate, and Caremel Pecan. Yum! It's worth the 4 hour round trip drive.

Last night at Trivia in a bar here in Oshkosh, WI one of the questions was " what is the name of the most popular cheese brand in Oregon?" Being from Eugene i totally go it right because i just put in my favorite cheese. Also the other oregon related question was "what is the state capitol of oregon" which our team was the only one to get right. Please get your cheeses into stores in NE wisconsin, i miss you and the TSA guys look at me funny when i bring bricks of cheese on the planes through the metal detector.

Hello to my favorite cheese factory :)

I submitted some pictures of my son for the photo contest and wanted to make sure you got them. Hope you did! They were pretty cute (although I am very biased :P ).

The contest is such a fun idea! Looks like you are getting a lot of great pictures!

Hi Kari! I'm glad you checked in - I don't think I received your photos. Did you send them from the same email address you entered when you submitted this blog comment?

I'm sure the pictures are really cute! Hope to see them!

Staci - Nice job at trivia! If you like quizzes, we have a Know Your Cheese IQ quiz on our website. Might be a good way to gain more cheesy knowledge for bar trivia? :)

Have you tried these stores in WI for Tillamook?

We also have an online store where you can find many of our cheeses (we'll ship them right to you!):

Thanks for your Tilla-love and for remaining faithful to your favorite cheese!
