Sweet tooth? The Tillamook Coast has you covered
Have a sugary craving you can’t kick? Need something sweet after dinner on the Tillamook Coast? Stop by one of these sweet-treat shops for a sugarcoated dessert.
While strolling Manzanita’s Laneda Avenue, stop by Manzanita Sweets. Stocked with jar candy, specialty chocolates, salt water taffy, and nostalgic candy, there’s sure to be something to satisfy your sweet tooth. Several local candy makers’ products are featured in the shop including McFadden’s Fabulous Fudge (Rockaway Beach) and Posh Sweets (Tillamook.)
Buttercup Ice Creams & Chowders
Gourmet ice creams and chowders are served up at this small shop in Nehalem. The menu changes monthly, but past ice cream flavors include: Sour Cream Strawberry Rhubarb on a poppy seed cone, and Chocolate Coconut Tahini (vegan!) on a vegan/gluten-free cone. Or try their semifreddo: Italian-style frozen mouse. And another bonus, all the ice cream flavors at Buttercup are gluten-free!
Until the new Tillamook Creamery Visitors Center opens in the summer of 2018, visitors can still get a scoop of every Tillamook ice cream flavor from the ice cream counter at the Temporary Visitors Center. Udderly Chocolate anyone?
Grab a dish and fill it up at Tillamook’s self-serve frozen yogurt shop: Yo Time. Customers can choose from 10 monthly flavors that may include: Dutch Chocolate, Banana Flambé Gelato, Cake Batter, and non-dairy chocolate and vanilla. Finish off your creation with toppings and pay by the ounce.
