Ben & Jerry's Snackable Dough

[New for 2018/2019] Ok, who still eats cookie dough even though the FDA or CDC tells us not to? For those who didn't raise their hand, who limits themselves to edible cookie dough? (sheepishly raises hand). Look, I grew up on eating cookie dough. Even in college, yeah, you would cheat and buy a stick of cookie dough and pretend it was dinner on occasion. Nowadays, we have edible cookie dough and I'm always happy to try a new offering. Let's see what happens when I try....

...you eat too much, that's what happens. You are supposed to eat this one ounce at a time (so 8 servings) but I'm guessing this is 2-3 servings for most of us. It's just too easy to keep popping these in your mouth (so it's got that over spoonable cookie dough).

Did anyone think these would be bad? No? Didn't think so. These are good ofcourse. Amazing? Probably not, but you can't argue with the practicality of these.

I would love a little more buttery-ness to these. There is a note of flour that's always trying to creep in. Actually, I either wanted it to be more buttery (more moist), or to have a little more brown sugar grit to it. Note: the tiny chocolate chips don't really change the texture at all...  or the flavor really now that I think about it.

So, this treat just kind of falls in the middle of both texture and taste. It's enjoyable but not mind blowing. I'm not complaining, i'm just nitpicking because that's what I do here. If somebody gives you a handful of these, you'll say thank you and enjoy.

Me, I'll probably stick with cookie dough cafe (review here).

I tried it and I loved it! Glad they decided to launch this. They need to release the cinnamon cookie dough that is used in the cinnamon buns ice cream. That would be heavenly.
