Free Admission to LA Zoo 9/15 Celebrating Los Angeles Tillamook Loaf Love Tour Stop

Good Food
Plus FREE Tickets to L.A. Zoo on 9/15

Easy, fun & healthy DIY Kids treat Tillamook Cheese Shapes from Cookie Cutters
We've been Tillamook fans here at the Elspas household for years, having enjoyed the brand's products as well as taken the company's factory tour in Tillamook, Oregon with our kids. This cheese brand is usually on our weekly shopping list and I typically buy 4-6 bars at a time when shopping at the supermarket because I have four teens: triplets (15) and big brother (16) and they seem to always be eating. We keep kosher, so our go-to variety is always the Tillamook Kosher Medium Cheddar. We use it in so many recipes that they love to nosh on: Mazah Grilled Cheese, Macaroni & Cheese, homemade pizza and veggie tacos to name a few. 

When my children were younger, I even used cookie cutters to cut out Tillamook cheese shapes to pack in their lunch boxes and to serve as healthy snacks at home much like the cheese novelties you see pictured in this post above. With such a positive experience I'm particularly excited to announce that this weekend Southern California adults and kids can literally say cheese and eat it too when the Tillamook Loaf Love Tour rolls into the Los Angeles Zoo this Saturday.

My daughter's Macaroni & Cheese wouldn't look this good w/o Tillamook
As part of the celebration to share some loaf love with local L.A. residents, the Loaf Love Tour is treating the first 100 adults or children sporting their best bright Tillamook orange FREE admission to the Los Angeles Zoo located at Griffith Park starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 15. After the first eligible 100, all others that day wearing the company's flagship color will receive $1 off general zoo entry costs. Fans should look for the Tillamook Baby Loaf bus located in the parking lot outside the zoo's main gate to check-in and participate.

All it takes is another slice of Matza on top & you have Matza Grilled Cheese

Once inside the zoo, event-goers of all ages can taste a variety of Tillamook Cheeses, take pictures with the Loafy costumed character, join in zoo bingo, and lots more fun. As an added bonus attendees will have the chance to taste and take home yummy samples of Tillamook Yogurt, which is new to the Los Angeles area.
