We first discovered Tillamook cheese last year when we travelled throughout Oregon last spring.

We have been trying to buy Tillamook cheese in Vancouver but has so far not been successful. Does anyone living in Vancouver area know where one could buy it? These days, everytime we pop over to Washington state, we would buy a pound of two.
Our favourite is the Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese.
Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese blends the mellow essence of Monterey Jack with the spicy “zing” of jalape?o peppers to create a flavor that both comforts and invigorates. We can even see pepper seeds embedded in the cheese but they are not really spicy.
We prefer to cube the cheese as a snack — great for road trips and a favourites with Nanzaro and Arkensen.
