When DŌ café opened earlier this year in New York City’s Greenwich Village, people waited in a line that stretched around an entire city block (upwards of two hours!) for the latest sweet sensation: ready-to-eat cookie dough.
And the raw dough mania hasn’t let up since. DŌ drew by far the largest crowd of any food vendor at Governor’s Ball, and news has spread of customers flying to NYC just to get a taste of this coveted treat.
So what’s the scoop on DŌ? Owner Kristen Tomlan’s edible cookie dough brand takes the guilty childhood pleasure (adult, too, LBH) of sneaking a spoonful of raw dough while making cookies to a whole new level: she uses pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour to ensure the unbaked treat is safe to eat.
DŌ’s first storefront location offers more than a dozen gourmet flavors including S’mores, Red Velvet, Brownie Batter, Oatmeal M&M, Confetti, and CommanDŌ (a “naked” dough without any add-ins).
You can order the crave-worthy confection by the scoop, in a build-your-own sundae, sandwiched between baked brownies or cookies, and mixed into milkshakes.
They sell vegan and gluten-free options, and have an online shop (with nationwide shipping), so everyone can get in on the cookie dough craze. C’mon, you know you wanna do the DŌ.
Our four-legged friends can’t get enough of DŌ either. Guaranteed tail wags.
A handful of online retailers have recently jumped on the raw dough bandwagon, but DŌ is the first-ever cookie dough scoop shop. Drop us a line at email@example.com if you hear of any others popping up.
