Tillamook Ice Cream in Los Angeles????

I'm originaly from Oregon and I haven't seen any Tillamook Ice Cream in Los Angeles. On Tillamooks website they list places in southern California that sell their products and I've called a few Bristol Farms, and Gelson's Markets and they just sell their cheese.

Has anyone seen Tillamook Ice Cream anywhere in or around Los Angeles??? I miss Oregon Strawberry.

  1. Tillamook's website shows it being available in Northern California (along with Oregon and Washington). So it looks like you are going to have to take a road trip to enjoy it. You might go into a customer driven store like a Gelson's or a Trader Joe's or Whole Food's and see if the manager might be amenable to stocking it.

    1. I kept after McConnell's to stock certain flavors of their great ice cream at my local market and finally won, so I encourage you not to give up. (Until you can find Tillamook Oregon Strawberry, I recommend McConnell's Bordeaux Strawberry -- the best, most-intense fruit ice cream since the homemade peach of my youth -- even if you have to go all the way to Santa Barbara to get it.)

        I have seen the Bordeaux SB at Gelsons and Whole Foods. I'm going to try it now after reading your post.

          That's good to know -- thanks. If they also have McConnell's Turkish Coffee, don't pass that one up either!

            Ohh ... I love coffee ice cream - I will definately have to pick this one up. I usually see Vanilla Bean / B. Stawberry and Turkish Coffee while window shopping at the market (I know ... I'm a weirdo, but love it). I always wondered about "Turkish Coffee". I am picking it up TODAY!

              Note the intense flavor and the fine Turkish coffee powder stirred throughout ... Excellent by itself or made into an affogato and served with candied orange peel and biscoti.

        1. I emailed Tillamook Creamery and they said because of shipping issues they only have ice cream in WA, OR, and Northern CA, Their website says something similar but I was hopping there were a few specialty places that had it. Darn
