TIllamook Icecream

Originally posted in September 2008, our family will make a return trip this summer to Tillamook and do the tour all over again!

The best ice cream in the world, or at least the northern corner of Oregon all starts at the Tillamook Creamery.

For those of you who are lucky enough to live or be traveling in Oregon, a trip to Tillamook is a fun day. First, the countryside as you drive into Tillamook is amazing, pastures valleys and lots and lots of dairy farms. The old town in Tillamook has fun little shops, used bookstores and restaurants. I can also attest that the Les Schwab dealership does a bang up job fixing tire flats (just in case you wanted to know). Oh, and Tillamook is on Tillamook Bay, a lovely bay with great views. But Tillamook is most famous for Cheese and Ice Cream.

For real cheese heads, stop first at the Blue Heron French Cheese Company and get some Brie. Wander around the grounds, have a taste of wine and enjoy the converted Dairy Farm. Next, drive about 5 minutes north, and take the self tour around the Tillamook Creamery. I tell you, even bribing kids with Ice Cream it was hard to get them away from the windows of the working Cheese factory. As a note, I remember as a kid, before the Tillamook brand was so popular, you could actually tour the floor and see the operation close up.

and, then, yes then, sit yourself down for a grubbing burger topped with Tillamook Cheddar, finished off with a big ole cone of Tillamook Ice Cream (over 40 flavors including seasonal Strawberry with Oregon Strawberries!) Just remember, if you are like me and lactose intolerant... don't forget these. They are life savers.
