On Wednesday, July 26, Sweet Box Bakery will introduce a new line of edible cookie dough called "Doughlicious."
The safe-to-eat cookie dough will come in five signature flavors: The O.G., Campfire S'mores, Cheesecake, Cookies-n-Cream and Birthday Cake.
Prices will be $5 for a small scoop, $7 for a large scoop and $5 for a chocolate-coated pop (available in The O.G. only). Assorted toppings will be available for the scoops, which will also be served with a shot of milk.
“I’ve been scraping cookie dough from the back of my whisks and spatulas for as long as I’ve been baking,” said owner Gretchen Fantini.
“Once I heard about a few local ready-to-eat flours, I couldn’t wait to serve a safely edible version at Sweet Box, and I think I’ve finally perfected the recipe."
Sweet Box Bakery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. The brick-and-mortar location is at 339 S. 13th St.
In addition to serving "Doughlicious" at her 4-year-old bakery, Fantini will also make the treat available for city events and private parties via her mobile dessert truck, where Sweet Box began in 2011.
