The Tillamook Cheese Factory is my favorite spot in Oregon, and it is a must visit for any trip to the coast. The Tillamook Cheese Factory is fun, educational, fascinating and delicious. I am a huge proponent of supporting the Tillamook Cheese Factory and Tillamook Cheese in general. Yes, it is just that good.
As an avid fan of the Tillamook Cheese Factory, I feel it is my duty to share with you the nine things that are an absolute must when visiting this landmark location.
#1 Wear A Tillamook T-Shirt
I know that this seems a little on the nose, but honestly if you don't live for a cheddar cheese grilled cheese sandwich you can't be a part of my #squad. In all reality this is one of my absolute favorite shirts to wear on the reg. It's totes adorable and right up my alley.
#2 Get Your Picture As A Cow
#3 Take A Cheesy Tour
Taking the tour is quintessential. I live for the cheese moving along the production line. I dream of slicing up those big bricks of cheese and biting into it. Yum!
Here's a short, fun video I shot of the cheese just spinning and spinning.
#4 Read Cheese Facts
#5 Taste Test!
#6 Buy Cheese
#7 Did I Mention Buy Cheese?
#8 Ice Cream is Essential
People come from all over the world to try our ice cream, so don't be discouraged if there happens to be a line—it's worth the wait." It's so true! As an added note, they have some very efficient people working the ice cream bar and the wait doesn't take that long. This past visit I had a Cinnamon Horchata Milkshake and it was EVERYTHING.
#9 Get in the Loaf Bus
P.S. Stay tuned, next week I'm going to share a totally cheesy recipe inspired by this visit.
