Nothing beats the fresh, creamy taste of Tillamook Ice Cream. Here at the Co-op we have a little saying: “Tastes Better because it’s Made Better” and we believe that’s the case for all our dairy products. So how is Tillamook Ice Cream made better?

Tillamook Ice Cream is made from the highest quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*. Our dedication to quality milk means only the best ingredients are used in Tillamook Ice Cream. We also whip less air into our ice cream. Quality ingredients and less air make our ice cream creamier, richer, and helps us win lots of awards!

Being an Oregonian, one of my favorite things about Tillamook Ice Cream is that we use real Oregon berries and other Northwest ingredients. Tillamook Oregon Strawberry and Marionberry Pie Ice Cream are perfect examples.

To learn more about how Tillamook Ice Cream is made (and to try all the flavors!) visit us at the Tillamook Cheese Factory!

What’s your favorite part of Tillamook Ice Cream?

*The FDA has stated that no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST treated and non-rBST treated cows.

Our family favors Tillamook Ice Cream over any other brand. We come from very large families and most all agree. Some of our favorites are Brown Cow/ AKA Utterly Chocolate,and your French Vanilla yummy!

Also it is reassuring to know it is a natural product, for all who like to eat ice cream.

The creamy texture and delicious flavor keeps us coming back for more!

How disappointing - you've discontinued making White Licorice Ice Cream! It was one flavor you couldn't buy retail and now to discontinue it at the factory too. Very sad. One less reason to stop at the factory during a trip to the beach. Sigh.

I know, Janice. I'm so sorry. There's an ingredient in the ice cream that we're not able to get anymore. It was definitely a crowd favorite. I hope you'll still find reasons to stop by the Cheese Factory to visit us!

I second Janice's concern re: White Licorice Ice Cream. I left a note in the comment box after driving from Seattle to your facility for my favorite, White Licorice. What an October disappointment.
Surely the missing ingredient can be found somewhere in the world???

Thanks for sharing your love of White Licorice Ice Cream with us, Richard. If we're ever able to bring it back, rest assured you'll hear about it. Until then, I hope there's another flavor you'll grow to enjoy just as much.

Does Tillamook make any non-dairy products?

June 26th, 2012 at 12:23 pm


Tillamook Team

Thanks for the question, Shirley! Tillamook does not make any non-dairy products. As a farmer-owned cooperative, dairy farming and making dairy products is what we do! Hope that helps! If you have any other questions feel free to leave another comment on the blog or Contact Us.

My favorite is the Cookie Dough ice cream because most cookie dough ice cream is just Vanilla with cookie dough in it, but Tillamook's cookie dough ice cream is actually cookie dough flavored! Delicious!

Hi Craig,

Thanks for being a fan! Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with us by making this recipe! I think it would be super tasty with some Cookie Dough Ice Cream!

All the best,

I just bought the "Cookies & Cream" flavor for the first and last time. It had so much air whipped into it, that it had the texture of whipped cream. How disappointing! I should have known better- Big Corporate & Big Grocery.

I'm so sorry to hear that, John. I understand that must've been really disappointing. Please reach out to our Consumer Relations team here. I'm sure they will want to try and make this right for you, and get as much information as possible to share with our Quality team.

I am sorry to see that you include corn syrup, usually called high fructose corn syrup in your ice cream's ingredients. It is the cause of obesity and diarrhea in many people. I know it is cheaper, but I am disappointed that Tillamook, a wonderful name in dairy products, is reduced to such disregard for the health of its customers

June 5th, 2014 at 7:53 pm

Tillamook Team

Hi Geneva,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us here on the blog! We recently decided to switch to all natural ingredients in our ice cream, so the vast majority of our flavors are now made using corn syrup instead of high fructose corn syrup. Corn syrup isn't processed in the same way as high fructose corn syrup and it is much easier for your body to metabolize. If you have any more questions about our ingredients, or would like more information about the corn syrup in our Ice Cream, please reach our to our Consumer Relations team at any time!

All the best,

Lauren of the Tillamook team

how much extra would it cost to just use sugar and not corn syrup? I'm thinking I would buy it and pay extra for all natural.

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your comment on our blog. I think you’ll be glad to know that we are in the process of transitioning to an ice cream recipe that does remove corn syrup from the main ice cream base. This new formulation has been replacing the old recipe on store shelves since the beginning of the year. Please note that there is a possibility that some of the inclusions (extra things that go into some ice cream flavors like cookie pieces or caramel, etc) may still have corn syrup in them, but the base of the ice cream will not contain corn syrup and it will no longer be a primary ingredient. Our new ice cream recipe will be even creamier than our current recipe while also eliminating Carrageenan, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Cellulose Gum, Mono and Diglycerides, partially hydrogenated oils, and Polysorbate 80. Our goal is to make our ice cream a more natural product that still retains the great taste and creaminess that our fans have come to know and love.

Thank you for being a Tillamook fan, and for your feedback! If you have any other questions, please let me know.

All the best,

Jackie, of the Tillamook Team

I just switched to Tillamook because Dreyer's Slow Churned was beginning to taste chemical-ish. Tillamook was on sale, and I know my brother likes it, so I tried it. Not only is it delicious, I am so happy to read in the above comment that you have eliminated Carrageenan, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Cellulose Gum, Mono and Diglycerides, partially hydrogenated oils, and Polysorbate 80. That is excellent news. I had been looking for an ice cream without all those chemicals and somehow I stumbled on Tillamook by chance! I'm a fan!

Hi Joan,

I'm glad to hear you gave our ice cream a try and enjoyed it! Yes, we changed our ice cream recipe to be simpler and more natural. We're thrilled you approve of the new recipe! I'll be sure to tell our Product Development team that you said so. Thanks again for reaching out!

All the best,

As a child in Oregon I grew up loving Tillamook products. You've been a part of our family traditions, but in recent years as a label reading mom I had sadly stopped buying the ice cream for my family because of the corn syrup content (which also tasted less wholesome than I remembered in my childhood), so I'm delighted to see that you are phasing that out! I trust your brand to be the best and it only seems right that you should be a leader in ousting the fillers. Thank you and please keep up the great work!

Tillamook Team

Hi Susan,

Thanks for sharing! We always encourage our fans to pay attention to the ingredients in their food, so it is great to hear that you check the labels of the food you purchase. Yes, we stopped using corn syrup as a main ingredient in our ice cream base about a year ago. We're glad to hear you are excited about the change! I'll be sure to tell our Ice Cream team here at Tillamook to keep up the excellent work. Thanks again for stopping by our blog!

All the best,

I grew up eating Tillamook ice cream. It was always a special brand because it was very creamy and consistent, unlike Dreyers (for example) which has a similar consistency to whipped cream. However, I was sad to find out today that the recipe was changed at some point in time and Tillamook tastes the same as what I dislike about Dreyers. The trader Joe's brand is a good example of the quality that I imagine Tillamook would have. Best of luck!

Hi Craig,

We are sorry to hear you're not a fan of our new ice cream recipe. I'm sure you already read some of the comments above, but we changed the recipe in an effort to make our ice cream more natural. I'll certainly share your feedback with our Product Development team. Thanks for stopping by our blog.
