If one of your dreams is to eat pre-made cookie dough right out of the package, look no further. If it’s not…wait, who am I kidding?? It is, right? I can’t be the only one…
Last month I went to a chocolate expo at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT. While it wasn’t entirely enjoyable due to the multitude of people (and strollers), I was able to snag a few yummy samples.
One of these was gluten free/vegan peanut butter, chocolate, banana ready to eat cookie dough. Delicious! I grabbed a postcard off the display table and tucked it in my purse, thinking that I would blog about the expo. Well, it didn’t live up to my high expectations – I was seriously bummed. But, a week later I took out the ad and pulled up the cookie dough website. Score!
These little desserts are called Unbakeables and are made by a small company in Connecticut called Whipped Up. The snacks are all natural, egg free, come in 8 varieties including one gluten free/vegan, and are ready to eat straight from the freezer.
DO NOT bake them, they will melt, burn, and ruin your day. Hence the name.
At around 150 calories a pop, they are the perfect little treat when you are craving something sweet. Store them right in the freezer and eat with no need to heat. (You can let them thaw a bit, but I like to skip the wait.). My boyfriend and I call them dessert. Because just one after dinner can’t hurt, right?
The Unbakeables come in packs of 3 and 10. It’s $5 for 3, $15 for 10. But, you can take advantage of a couple online specials:
- Boxed Set: 20% off 10-pack tubes when you order 5; that’s 5 tubes for the price of 4!
- Sampler Pack: Buy a 10-pack tube and a 3-pack tube and the company will include 4 singles of other flavors to try. A pretty good deal!
What isn’t so pretty is the price for shipping and handling: $15 to send to NY. Yikes! Granted, the treats have to be sent with ice packs and the package arrived within two days, but I still see it as a bit steep. Those who live in Connecticut will have the benefit of buying Unbakeables in local stores. Check their website for all locations.
My favorite flavor: Peanut Butter Dough topped with Crunchy Milk Chocolate. It can only be described as Heaven in a small bite!
My boyfriend’s: Gluten Free/Vegan Peanut Butter Dough topped with Chocolate Covered Banana. Shhh, he doesn’t know its vegan!!
Try one or try them all, but don’t feel guilty about it.
