If you had told me as a child that someday I could eat raw cookie dough shame-free and without my long-standing fear of salmonella getting in the way, I would have thought, “Yes, after I have died and gone to heaven.”
But luckily, we live in a world where eating raw cookie dough without leaving this mortal plane isn’t just possible, it’s safe, gourmet and encouraged. I’m talking The Cookie Dough Café, there’s a paradise-on-Earth of uncooked desserts that you can freely consume as often as you like without getting food poisoning or having to awkwardly squeeze it out of a tube.
But even more exciting? Their latest flavor. The Cookie Dough Café has come out with an official Oreo dough, and I’m just about losing it.
Now, in appearance, the dough is much closer to a cookies-and-cream sort of Oreo flavor than you might think from the name alone (I mean, the fact that it’s not a jet-black dough gives that away pretty quickly). In fact, some think it’s just a rebranding of their original cookies and cream flavor, now with the official Oreo seal of approval. But semantics aside, it looks creamy and sweet and is loaded with Oreo chunks. You really can’t go wrong!
Currently, The Cookie Dough Café sells its products online and in select stores around the country. The Oreo flavor was spotted at Mariano’s, but you can always call your local store and ask if they have it in yet.
In the meantime, no one will judge me if I dunk my Oreos into chocolate chip cookie dough instead of milk, right?
