Does anyone else agree that eating the cookie dough is the best part of making cookies? It’s my favorite part when making these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. However, we all know that eating raw eggs could increase your risk of salmonella poisoning, so eating cookie dough is certainly a dangerous activity.
But what if there was an edible cookie dough free of this potential food-borne illness?
Luckily, there is a company who makes such a product—and it’s now available to purchase at Sam’s Club! The Cookie Dough Café makes numerous egg-free edible cookie dough flavors and sells them nationwide. Find out where it ranked in our edible cookie dough taste test.
Buy them in a pack of eight
Although this particular gourmet edible cookie dough brand sells different container sizes of their flavors, Sam’s Club is selling smaller snack-sized containers in a pack of eight. For just $8.98 you can snag eight 3.5 oz. Chocolate Chip cookie dough cups. The containers come with a tiny spoon, so they’re perfect for throwing in your lunchbox for an afternoon treat.
Sam’s Club isn’t the only store with the cookie dough magic
That’s right! You can find different flavors and sizes of The Cookie Dough Café products at numerous nationwide sellers including Walmart, Safeway, Kroger and even Hy-Vee! 7 Eleven also sells cookie dough for your road trip pit stop needs.
Looking at Sam’s Club website, it seems that the only cookie dough flavor they are currently selling is Chocolate Chip. However, at other stores, you can find even more flavors such as Oreo (which we taste-tested ourselves), Brownie Batter, Confetti, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Monster and “Naked Dough” which is simply the dough without the toppings. Naked Dough is also perfect for adding any toppings you like. Want raisins or nuts in your cookie dough? Snag the Naked Dough and add them yourself!
These flavors come in different sizes compared to what’s seen at Sam’s Club. You can grab a single serving size (3.5 oz) and a sharing size (1 pint). Some stores are even selling packs of four snack-size containers, similar to your favorite pudding or Jello snacking cups.

Tip: Chilling Batter Before BakingChocolate chip cookies are a favorite treat for school functions and other kid-related events, but sometimes the batter spreads a little too thin while baking. I've found that if I chill the batter for a short time, it won't spread out too fast in the oven. While one tray of cookies is baking, I keep the remaining dough in the refrigerator until I'm ready to put the next tray in the oven. - Judy Champion F., Melbourne, Florida
Tip: Simple Cookie SwapAll the kids in my neighborhood love the taste of my chocolate chip cookies. I simply substitute almond extract for the vanilla. - Donna F., Contoocook, New Hampshire
Tip: Making Softer CookiesMeasure flour carefully; too much may make cookies firm, dry and tough. Avoid overmixing the dough and check for doneness at the minimum baking time, baking longer if needed. Try a recipe which uses brown sugar or honey instead of white sugar. White sugar produces a crisper cookie. - Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Tip: Chewy CookiesMy dad taught me to add a tablespoon of dark corn syrup to chocolate chip cookie batter. It keeps the cookies moist and also a bit chewy. - Shirley De Barthe, Las Cruces, New Mexico
