Chocolate Lovers Rejoice: Tillamook Launches New Chocolate Ice Cream Collection
Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA), the co-op behind America’s fastest growing family-sized ice cream brand1, has launched the brand’s first ever curated collection of Chocolate Ice Cream, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
But these are not your average chocolate ice cream offerings.
Created for lovers (and the people that love chocolate), the new collection is made with 45% more cocoa than Tillamook’s classic chocolate ice cream, creating flavors that are richer, darker, decadent, and provide maximum delight by the spoonful.
Approximately 50% of consumers see chocolate as the ultimate base for ice cream.2 It’s an insight Tillamook took to heart as they pursued a decadent cocoa to build a new chocolate base, added more cream for a delicious texture, and churned in some of your favorite chocolate treats.
Did they mention the chocolate?

- German Chocolate Cake: Dreamy dark chocolate ice cream with brown sugar coconut filling, pecan pieces, and chocolate cake pieces.
“Our ice cream makers worked hard to source the perfect cocoa powder
to bring the right balance of sweetness, bitter cocoa, and flavor intensity
to our new chocolate ice cream base,”
Ice Cream Scientist
“Our tastebuds also brought us to the kitchen to explore how decadent desserts could translate well into ice cream, which led to spending hours baking German chocolate cake and licking brownie batter off whisks – all in a day’s work – to create a collection worthy of all chocolate lovers’ desire.”
The Chocolate Collection is the newest addition to the expanding ice cream line from Tillamook. Most recently the brand introduced Neapolitan as a core flavor addition, and released four limited-edition seasonal flavors, including Orange and Cream, Campfire Peanut Butter Cup, Peppermint Bark, and Holiday Sugar Cookie.
Tillamook Ice Cream, including the new Chocolate Collection, is available across the country at Kroger, Albertsons, Safeway, Publix, Ahold Delhaize, and many other grocery stores. Find it at a store near you at FindTillamook.com and learn more at Tillamook.com.
