REVIEW: Ben & Jerry’s Snackable Cookie Dough

There’s no denying that deep down, we’re all disgusting monsters…

Need proof? I submit to you, Exhibit A:

This is it, folks. We all love Ben & Jerry’s because of how much crap they cram into our ice cream, and we also love eating raw cookie dough by the spoonful.

Well, introducing bags of it…

Last year this was a test product in exactly ONE test market, but residents of Vermont walked into their local Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops, skipped the ice cream altogether, and bought these SACKS of the same cookie dough the company puts into their pints. And since it sold well, Ben & Jerry’s brought it to select grocery stores across the country.

No more trudging your way through loads of delicious ice cream to get to even-more-delicious cookie dough chunks. Available in Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and VEGAN Chocolate Chip, the dough chunks are safe to eat raw (the eggs are pasteurized and use heat-treated flour to make this possible in the non-vegan versions; the vegan version contains no eggs).

Not that we had any problem eating raw regular cookie dough, but it’s nice to not be yelled at on the package for doing so.

No review necessary, but Lord help me…  I cannot help myself.

This is the cookie dough that started it all for Ben & Jerry’s. It’s hard to imagine, but cookie dough in ice cream wasn’t, like, a thing until Ben & Jerry’s did it way back in 1984 after a random fan suggested it. Their gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough are featured in popular flavors like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Half Baked, and The Tonight Dough.

No doubt – this is the exact same goodness that’s in the pints. Characterized by a big brown sugar presence, a buttery backdrop, lots of chocolate chips and a little added vanilla flavor, the cookie dough is delectably chewy with a satisfying sugary grit.

It is oh-so-good, and perfectly Ben & Jerry’s.

Ben & Jerry’s Snackable Cookie Dough (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip)

Ben & Jerry's Snackable Cookie Dough (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip)

The peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough is currently featured in The Tonight Dough and non-dairy Peanut Butter Half-Baked.

Equally awesome, as if there was ever any doubt, this stuff has a BOLD peanut butter flavor marching in front of all those chocolate chips. It uses real peanut butter as the second ingredient, but also drives it home with peanut flour and peanut extract. Same buttery, brown sugary base with vanilla notes as the plain chocolate chip version.

The only bad thing about this product is how impossible it is to stop eating it.

The Vegan Chocolate Chip Snackable Cookie Dough is a lot like the regular cookie but a little worse, because that’s just how vegan stuff works.

Still, this is probably as good as vegan chocolate chip cookie dough is gonna get – especially for this purpose of eating handfuls of it, without having to do anything.

A fun Easter egg on the vegan version… err, I mean a fun Easter *tofu* on the vegan version, is that the cows on the packaging have been replaced with an empty pasture.

The butter is gone from the vegan version and in its place is coconut oil. It also contains no milk. The semisweet chocolate chips and sugary grit do their part to make it a relatively seamless transition from the non-vegan version, and the only noticeable difference in a direct side-by-side is that the vegan version is slightly less “creamy.”

Still delicious, and the difference is nearly impossible to detect if you add it to the vegan ice cream of your choice.

Ben & Jerry's Snackable Cookie Dough

Full disclosure and taunt: Ben & Jerry’s shipped me a package of each of these for free (LOL my life is awesome), but it didn’t affect my review. It’s delicious cookie dough that you can eat by itself or add to any ice cream you think would benefit from it (any of them). Me and the Vermonsters gobbled it up and now you can too.

Way to go, Vermont. Go buy “Oops! All Chunks”  today.

Burning Questions:

  1. How do you store this product? In the freezer.
  2. Will I die if I eat other raw cookie dough? Maybe, but I’m still alive.
  3. Will I die if I eat this whole bag in one sitting? If this website stops updating, you’ll know why.

Place of Purchase: Sent to me by Ben & Jerry’s, available in select grocery stores nationwide.
