Review & Giveaway: Tillamook Cheese - CLOSED

Voted the world's best medium cheddar cheese in 2010, you'll definitely want to try Tillamook cheese!  Not sure if Tillamook is available where you live?  Check here!  We love Tillamook Sharp Cheddar and were so excited to check out the Medium Cheddar cheese too!  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 – made from the same recipe for more than a century.
Tillamook Medium Cheddar is naturally aged over 60 days to develop its rich, creamy, smooth flavor and made using only the highest-quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones so you can be confident it’s safe and healthy for your family.  You can enjoy it as a quick and delicious snack, layered in your favorite sandwich or as a tasty addition to your favorite main dish.  My kids were happy to have slices added to just about every snack and meal, because as any toddler will let you know...."mommy, we're getting our calcium" once you've told them once!

Tillamook makes so much more than just cheese, including ice cream, yogurt, butter, and sour cream but only their cheese is available near us at this time!  I'd love to try more of their products after trying more varieties of their cheeses!  Find out if Tillamook's Loaf Love tour will be coming to a city near you be clicking on the picture below....you might be lucky enough to see them in person...they're coming to North Texas soon - yeah!
Make sure to visit Tillamook Cheese on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to connect with other cheese fans, trade recipes and find coupons for Tillamook products!

You'll find lots of amazing recipes for Tillamook cheese from breakfast to dessert and everything in between on their website too!  I know we'll be making this Beer Cheddar Soup as the temperatures start to get colder!  It will be wonderful for football season too!  Yum!
Beer Cheese Soup
This creamy, vegetarian soup cooks up quick and easy, boasting a thick, luscious texture and an irresistible mingling of flavors. Served with a crusty bread, it’s the perfect comfort food. (Courtesy of Billy Hahn, Executive Chef, Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant)
