I just got back from a trip to the Great North West. I visited my dad after 16 years of not traveling up his way. He's been down a few times and we've been in touch on the phone and on the internet. It was a great visit, we had a wonderful time!

My question though at the opening, we visited a Rite Aid to pick up some ice cream and wouldn't you know it. They don't have Thrifty Ice cream! What!!! That is some of the best, award winning ice cream in the world and they don't have it! How disappointing is that? Well, I did find another good one that I haven't seen at home in San Diego, Tillamook. I've heard of the cheese, I didn't know they made ice cream too? I learned something new!


Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know much, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.

IMO, you can't beat locally made ice cream... I seek that out when possible.

Gifford Ice Cream is a great ice cream. Its made up in Maine. We sell it in the Ice Cream Parlor here at the campground.

To the OP, you need to take a trip up the Oregon coast to Tillamook! They are a growing local Co-Op that has had their plant open to the public for tours as long as I can remember! Lots of RV parking and easy access just real busy in the Summer time.

Tillamook is a close 2nd to Blue Bell, however Blue Bell is still the King of ice creams.

Tillamook ice cream can not even begin to compare to Umpqua Ice Cream!!! Next time you come up, try it..... Tillamook is our 2nd choice. And if you stop at Rice Hill (north of Roseburg, south of Eugene on I5), there's an ugly little trailer with a carport that sells ice cream. They use Umpqua Ice Cream and make the BEST, absolutely BEST milk shakes

and I haven't seen Thrifty Ice cream in YEARS........had forgotten all about it!

x 2 on Umpqua! We feel it's far superior to the other brands available in the PNW & they offer some great flavors like Peppermint Candy & Spumoni!

We enjoy the Umpqua brand when we travel in that direction.
