Cookie dough. One of our most beloved dessert/snack items. We’ve all been at that point where we walk around eating cookie dough out of the tube or package, and it’s a huge craving of ours.

Of course, we always had that risk of food poisoning/salmonella when we ate it. Not anymore.

A new restaurant in New York City, called , is selling ready-t0-eat cookie dough in numerous epic dessert forms. They make their cookie dough with pasteurized eggs, so all of their offerings are safe to eat and won’t make you sick like normal cookie dough might.

You can order different flavors of cookie dough by the scoop, or get it in other iterations ranging from cookie dough ice cream sandwiches to Nutella-stuffed cookie dough cupcakes.

The shop is dedicated to serving all kinds of cookie dough lovers, so even if you desire vegan or gluten-free cookie dough, Dō is the place to get your fix.

If you’re not in NYC, fret not — the company does ship their cookie dough nationwide in tub form, and even delivers cookie dough CAKES.

This might be the best way ever to over-indulge your cookie dough cravings. I’m definitely going to pick a few packs myself — and hopefully not eat an entire tub of it at once.

Kit Kat Has A Cookie Dough Flavor And We Want it NOW

A photo posted by Paul 🇬🇧 (@ptheledge) on

Kit Kat’s been known to come out with unique flavors, mainly in Japan where they actually have a Kit Kat museum, but it’s an offering in Canada that has us most excited at the moment.

It looks like Kit Kat’s been spoiling Canadians with a Chunky Cookie Dough Kit Kat bar that has the same milk chocolate and waffle crisp layers you love, but adds a nice chunk of cookie dough within. The Impulsive Buy snapped a photo and basically just teased us all with the thought of it gently caressing our lips with its delicious chocolatey taste.

It’s a little ridiculous how basic the Kit Kat offerings in the US are. The wildest flavor we have here in The States is white chocolate.

Canada, however, goes all out with several chunky flavors, including peanut butter, white chocolate, and double caramel. Hell, they even have a cookies & cream Kit Kat in the Great White North.

If you really wanted to try one without flying anywhere, there’s the Amazon option that’ll cost you $24.99 FOR ONE BAR. And for whatever reason, that bar may or may not be “used.”

All right, Canada. You gave us Drake, Justin Bieber, and Wolverine. Do us a solid and let us have your Chunky Cookie Dough Kit Kats, please.

Let’s Play Roomba Beer Pong & The Existence Of Disney Dim Sum [KATCHUP]

Here we are, another episode of the FOODBEAST Katchup. If you missed out on all the food news this week, fear not. This series catches you up on all the top stories in the wide world of food.

This week, someone created a brilliant new way to play beer pong. Hint: it involves a roomba. A man got into an altercation with his friend after he didn’t want to try the delicious bowl of ramen he offered.

There’s something terrifying in the food courts of IKEA Japan. They’re calling it a Ninja Dog and it’s as dark as the night. Remember those romantic comedies where eating cookie dough will help you deal with a break up? Not anymore, says the FDA.

Finally, Disney Dim Sum is a thing.

Check out this week’s Katchup!

Disney Dim Sum

Disney-Dim-Sum-ED

If you love all things Disney just as much as you love stuffing your face with snacks, you might want to stop what you’re doing and pay attention.

It turns out you don’t need a foodie fairy godmother to make all of your magical meal wishes come true. Apparently, all you have to do is stop by the Crystal Lotus restaurant in Hong Kong’s Disneyland Hotel for some of its Signature Disney Dim Sum. READ MORE

Roomba Pong

Drinkers can be some of the most innovative people out there, and they’ve proven that notion once again with this strange yet highly functional combination.

Introducing Roomba Pong! Based on the images and videos we found, the rules seem to be pretty simple. Basically, each team has a square table, with each table a reasonable distance from each other. Then a roomba is placed on each table with the ten cups forming a triangle placed on top of the roomba.

Ignore Those Rom Coms, Eating Raw Cookie Dough Will F*ck You Up

cookie dough

Who doesn’t love eating raw cookie dough or licking the spoon after making brownies? Apparently the FDA, who is now saying put the raw cookie dough down now and forever. Yes, even the vegan, eggless variety.

Apparently it’s no longer just salmonella you should be worried about. According to a new blog post by the FDA, the agency is now discouraging people from consuming raw dough of any variety because they now believe that raw flour of any brand could contain bacteria. This announcement follows a recent outbreak of E. coli believed to be tied to contaminated flour that has infected 38 people since last December. This led General Mills to conduct a voluntary recall of 10 million pounds of Gold Medal, Signature Kitchens and Gold Medal Wondra flour.

The problem with flour is that unlike other foods, there is no “kill-method.” In other words, there’s no sanitation that goes into raw flour. Raw flour comes directly from the field so anything, including animal waste as the FDA pointed out, could  be infecting it with bacteria. Cooking methods like frying, boiling, roasting, baking, and microwaving all count as kill methods which is why cooked dough is safe.

The FDA even discouraged parents from letting kids play with homemade playdough made with dough or doing any other flour crafts because even if kids are not directly consuming the playdough there’s a good chance a three-year-old is going to stick their hands in their mouth after playing with it and get sick.

One Man Dared to Cover an Entire Pizza with Cookie Dough. This is What Happened

cookie-pizza-genius

Sometimes, life presents challenges. Sometimes, those challenges come in the form of four cheese DiGiorno pizza and a stick of cookie dough. When these moments of truth happen, there will be those that rise to the occasion. Cue in: 26-year-old Michael J. Hudson.

____

The Detroit native saw an opportunity when others saw a mediocre Netflix-worthy dinner.

____

Envisioning greatness, Hudson put two and two together.

____

Yes, that’s a layer of baked cookie dough lovingly embracing a cheese pizza with tomato sauce.

____

Savory. Sweet. Hold Me.

 ____

Some say he ruined a perfectly good pizza and that he was probably stoned off his mind. There’s a 98.9 percent chance that’s true, but still, you’ve gotta give the guy kudos for dreaming big.
