Snacking on raw cookie dough is a lot like watching reality TV: You know it’s bad for you, you know other people will judge you if you admit to it, but it just feels so good. Well, if you’re someone who likes munching on break-and-bake cookie dough while bingeing Love Is Blind (that sounds AMAZING right now), I have great news for you. Pillsbury has been swapping out its traditional cookie dough recipe for dough that you can safely eat raw!
We first spotted this news on the Instagram @Candyhunting, who posted a photo of some new packaging that boasted Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk & Chip cookie dough was safe to eat raw or baked.
Not only that, Candyhunting said that this would soon be the case for ALL Pillsbury cookie dough thanks to using “heat-treated flour and pasteurized eggs to kill off possible food borne pathogens.”
That might sound way too good to be true, but it is, in fact, true! Pillsbury confirmed to Delish that it is transitioning all its refrigerated cookie dough formulas to be safe to eat raw or baked by the end of summer 2020. Not only that, but also all of its refrigerated brownie dough will be safe to eat raw or baked too!
If you follow the world of food closely though, you might know that it can take a while for products to be swapped in though, so for now and always, you should be checking to make sure you see the “safe to eat raw” seal on packaging before going to town. If you see that though, well, fire up The Bachelor and get to snacking!
