The Cheesiest Food Tour We've Ever Seen
We were scouring local farmers' markets this weekend for cheese curds (more on that another time) when we spotted a giant cheese on wheels. True, everything is better with cheese, but can you improve a classic '65 VW van by chopping it up and turning it into a rolling block of cheddar?

Apparently, yes. Every passerby at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market wanted a pic of the Tillamook Baby Loaf van.
across the Western U.S. in celebration of the company's 100th anniversary. The tour started in Tucson and will continue up the coast and around the western states (including Illinois and Texas, ugh!) until November.
A handful of Tillamook girls dressed in matching orange tees and fresh-faced smiles, and their supervisor, are stuck driving around in the VW chop-shop special until then. Cute ride. Meeting new people. All the cheese you can eat. Not a bad gig, really.
Tillamook's fresh-faced farm girls are a world away from the tight tank tops and heavy makeup of other food company street teams. Phoenicians get in on the tasting action. Mmmmm....cheese.
The Tillamook Loaf Love Tour will be in town through February 13. Catch them at local supermarkets over the next two weeks and again at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market on the 13th.
