Look sharp, fellow Pacific Northwest residents! Not to be cheesy, but we have some “grate” news- pun intended. For a limited time, Costco will be carrying our new Farmstyle Cut Shredded Sharp White Cheese in a convenient two pack of 1.5lb bags – 3lbs total. It’s a new look, but we promise it is the same bold, luscious cheddar that’s been gracing your table meal after meal over the years. Instead of putting your time, arms, and effort into grating perfect shredded cheese for all of your home cooked meals, let us do the hard work for you. Our Farmstyle Cut shreds are thicker and meltier than ever before, with more of that fresh from the block Tillamook flavor packed into every shred.

But while time makes cheddar better, we’re afraid you only have a few weeks to grab this Costco-exclusive deal. Grab your raincoats and head to one of the stores on the map below to stock up on the new Tillamook Farmstyle Cut Shredded Sharp White Cheddar Cheese. It’s not the sharpest cheddar in the factory, but we guarantee you’ll never have a dull meal when you use our Sharp White Cheddar.

We’re not putting it mildly when we say these 3lb packages will sell out quick, so be sure to call your local Costco before braving the Northwest weather in the name of Tillamook Sharp White Cheddar.

Hi Stacey,

Good question! Costco decided which of their store locations they wanted to carry our new Sharp White Cheddar shredded cheese. However, if you would like the Warrenton Costco to start carrying it, I would suggest speaking to your store manager and requesting it. Please feel free to fill out our Product Request template, print it, and hand it to a store manager.

Thanks for stopping by our blog!

Hi Terrilee,

Please do! This special offer is only available in the Pacific Northwest and a couple other stores at the moment, but hopefully if enough people request it from their store managers then it will start being sold in more locations. I used this in some enchiladas the other day and it was pure cheesy bliss! We hope you get to try it soon!

All the best,

Is the cheese coated with cellulose? I am on vacation and thought about having my husband pick some up/but only if it is uncoated and natural.

I just bought this at Costco in Eugene Oregon. I'm thinking about making homemade mac n cheese with it. Do you have a recipe online? I'll be using penne pasta and cream. Any suggestion on technique? Thank you.

Are your shredded cheeses gluten free? I know many brands add things to prevent caking and my son has celiacs.

Hi Michele,

Good question! No, we do not use cellulose in our shredded cheese. We do use a small amount of potato starch to prevent the shreds from caking together, as well as natamycin, a natural mold inhibitor. You can find all of the ingredients and nutritional information for all of our products on our Product page on our website. Just select "Sharp White Cheddar" to see the details.

Thanks for reaching out!

Hi Angie,

You have come to the right place! We have an entire section for "Mac and Cheese Recipes" on our website. We also have a blog post entitled "Top 10 Mac and Cheese Recipes" for even more ideas. The first recipe on the list, The Every Day Mac and Cheese, is my personal favorite. I'm sure if you thinned your cream a little with water it could substitute for whole milk, and penne would be an easy swap for elbow mac and cheese. You can stir in the cheese to the sauce as the recipe suggests, but I personally don't. I lay all the pasta on the bottom, layer most of the shredded cheese next, pour the sauce over the cheese, and then add another small sprinkle of cheese on top of that. The heated sauce and baking will melt the cheese without having to stir it in but again, that's just my preference.

Let us know how it turns out!

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for asking! All of our cheese is gluten-free. We do add a little potato starch to keep our shredded cheese from caking, but it is gluten-free and we do not use gluten in any of our cheeses.

I hope that helps!

Would love it if you would have this cheese available in the Tumwater Costco and the one on NE 84th St in Vancouver! Please consider this request. Love, love, love Tillamook cheese!

Warrenton should carry it if only for the fact that Warrenton is closest to Tillamook

Hi Kathryn,

Thanks for reaching out! This is just a limited-time offer at the moment, but if these Sharp White Farmstyle Cut shreds turn out to be popular and sell well hopefully it is something Costco will start carrying year-round at more locations. Feel free to use our Product Request template when you speak to your store manager!

Thanks,

Hi Becky,

We'd love that too! I'd suggest speaking to your local store manager and letting them know you would like to be able to purchase our Farmstyle Cut Shredded Sharp White Cheddar at their location. Store managers and their regional buyers decide which products to carry, so fill out our Product Request template and let them know you'd like to try this cheese! Thanks again for reaching out.

All the best,

Hi Anne,

Sorry for any confusion! This is a limited time, Costco exclusive offer of two 1.5lb bags of our Sharp White Cheddar Farmstyle Cut Shredded Cheese. We are not offering samples of this cheese.

Thanks,

Hi Jennifer,

We're sorry to hear that, and apologize for any confusion. Costco is only carrying this cheese at select locations for a few weeks and did not choose to carry our new Farmstyle Shredded Cheese at their Beaverton location. We would suggest requesting this product from the store manager using our Product Request Template as they and their regional buyers decide which products to stock.

I hope that helps!
