The Epic History of Cookie Dough
We’re not quite sure what it is about Cookie Dough that makes it so magical. Those soft, gooey gobs of cookie dough sit in a sea of creamy vanilla ice cream that’s plenty euphoric in its own right, but simple enough to let the cookie dough shine. (After all, we know who the real rock star is here.)
But putting cookie dough in ice cream hasn’t always been a thing. In fact — brag alert! — we kind of started the whole cookie dough ice cream thing. Here’s how this epic flavour rose to power in the ice cream world:
At our very first Scoop Shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont, an anonymous fan suggested that we mix chunks of cookie dough into our Vanilla ice cream. We gave it a try, and people seemed to like it. (Like, a lot.)
Fans in our Scoop Shops liked Cookie Dough so much, we packed it into tubs and brought it to grocery store shelves.
