There are some things in life you know are bad for you but you just can’t give it up, and that my friends, is raw cookie dough. We get it, it’s hard to resist that sweet, sweet cookie dough while you’re making a batch of cookies. A little nibble here and there won’t hurt anybody, right? Well, there is always the risk of getting salmonella or E. Coli and that is why it’s strongly advised to not eat it raw. Thankfully Pillsbury is making our dreams come true by unveiling a new formula so you can eat their cookie dough raw or you can bake it — your choice!
Instagram user @CandyHunting was the first to spot this delicious product and shared it with its 217 thousand followers. According to Candy Hunting’s post, “The new formulation uses heat-treated flour and pasteurized eggs to kill off possible foodborne pathogens (mainly Salmonella) prior to baking the cookies.” The Instagram user spotted this package of Chocolate Chunk & Chip Cookies at Hy-Vee. They also reported that all Pillsbury cookie dough packages plan to transition to this new edible formula by the end of summer 2020.
The post boasts over 5 thousand likes and judging by the comment section people are as excited about this new product as we are! One Instagram user said “That’s what I’m talking about!!” and another said, “OOO i need to find this wow”.
