Still looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift? While there are a lot of great options out there (air fryer…everyone wants an air fryer!), may I suggest a truly deranged one? Tillamook announced this week that it will be selling a 40-pound block of cheddar cheese that it has nicknamed the “Mother Loaf.”
The famed cheesemaker is selling this mammoth block of sharp yellow cheddar cheese for National Cheddar Day along with its “Cheddar Capsule” collection full of cheese-themed items. It turns out these Mother Loaf cheeses have been around at Tillamook for a long time, but the public hasn’t always had access to one. The company says each of its products begins as a 40-pound block and then is naturally aged anywhere from 60 days to a whopping 10 years!! As the brand put it, each one of its shredded cheeses or smaller cheese blocks are “literal chips off the old block.”
If you’d like to make it yours, you’ll have to get your fingers ready to click into Tillamook’s shop on Saturday, February 13, at 8 a.m. PT. That’s when the entirety of the collection will be available, and you can get a Mother Loaf for yourself for $112. If your Valentine would prefer something a little…smaller (totally get it!), you can also pick up other cheese-themed merch from the shop including a Cheddar Tie-Dye Sweatshirt (which will run you $50), matching Cheddar Tie-Dye Sweatpants for $55, Cheddar Lounge Shorts for $38, and even something called a Squeaky Curds Dog Toy for $20.
None of this will come in time for Valentine’s Day, of course, but uh, I think a screenshot of the giant, 40-pound block of Tillamook cheese that will be coming their way is more than enough!!!
