Visit Portland: Top 10 Oregon Omiyage

I love shopping for omiyage (souvenirs) while traveling, and while in Portland I bought A LOT of omiyage.

There's so much more I wish I could've bought, but my budget (and suitcase) could only allow for so much.

Here are my top 10 Oregon Omiyage picks:

  1. Bluebird Bakers: Specializing in gourmet cookies, their Rich Chocolate with Salted Caramel cookies were AMAZING!
  2. Seely Mint: The Seely Family grows peppermint and spearmint, and they make a lot of yummy products with their mint oils (I LOVED the Chocolate Mint Melts).
  3. McTavish Shortbread: Using the highest quality ingredients, McTavish Shortbread offers a variety of products in yummy flavors as well as fun shapes.
  4. Cary's of Oregon Toffee: There's just something about the combination of chocolate and toffee that is so addicting.  Their toffee comes in several different flavors, and it's obvious why the Milk Chocolate Almond is a best-seller (SO GOOD!).
  5. Woodblock Chocolate: Chocolate made from bean to bar. You can almost taste the passion in each bite.
  6. Indulge Caramels: I only recently started enjoying caramel, and these little bites of indulgence are a must for anyone who loves caramel.
  7. Twila's English Toffee: Handmade using quality ingredients, Twila's English Toffee can be bought in single-serving 1 oz sizes or larger packages, and it's truly delicious!
  8. Chedz Snacks: If you like cheesy snacks as much as I do, give Chedz a try - they're very flavorful and make a great snack for both kids and adults!
  9. Stirs the Soul Chocolate: Available in intriguing flavors such as Orange Goji and Cayenne Cinnamon, Stirs the Soul offers raw chocolate bars that are bold in flavor and intensity.
  10. Lillie Belle Farms Handmade Chocolates: Bon bons, bars, and even chocolate-covered bacon are just a few of the many items that Lillie Belle Farms offers - a chocolate-lover's dream!
I know there are so many more great products made in Oregon, even non-edible ones, but as you can see my personal favorites include a lot of chocolate.

What are your favorite made-in-Oregon products?
