Tillamook Cheese Review & Giveaway
Of all the cheese brands available in the market, I prefer Tillamook. I love the flavor and the smooth texture of Tillamook cheese! In fact, I often find myself pulling a block of cheese out of the refrigerator and slicing a piece of cheese for a light snack. The boys LOVE cheese and crackers and I try to keep our refrigerator stocked with Tillamook Cheese. Plus, Tillamook has exciting news! Tillamook has earned the World’s Best Medium Cheddar title at the 2010 World Championship Cheese Contest!! Congrats to Tillamook! It’s a title well deserved.
A staple in the Pacific Northwest (where Tillamook Cheese is most often bought in a signature 2 lb Baby Loaf), their flagship Naturally Aged Medium Cheddar is now available across the country. Tillamook Cheese is a 101 year old farmer-owned dairy company in Oregon that makes a variety of cheeses including the flagship, award-winning Medium Cheddar (one of our family favorites) – made from the same recipe for more than a century.
To achieve the deep, nutty flavor and perfectly creamy texture families have loved for more than a century, Tillamook only uses the highest quality milk from cows not treated with growth hormones and naturally age their Medium Cheddar for more than 60 days. It’s an artisan approach to everyday cheese and it’s how Tillamook has always done it.
