We also reviewed Nestle Toll House Funfetti Edible Cookie Dough and Edible Fudge Brownie Batter that came out in 2020. Click here to read that review.
Edible cookie dough has been all the rage for the last couple of years, thanks to Cookie Dough Café on Shark Tank. I’ve tried this “edible” variety before, and I didn’t love it. But, I have been back on the train thanks to Ben & Jerry’s snackable version.
So, it was almost serendipitous that Nestle Toll House launched its new Edible Cookie Dough line with two flavors: Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Monster.
Of course, I started with the original flavor. It smelled like the cookie dough I remember trying to eat as a kid when my mom was mixing the “non-edible” kind. I enjoyed everything about this.
The chocolate chips were the perfect size, the flavor was spot-on, and the texture was just right – not too hard and not too soft even right from the refrigerator. Flavor-wise, it was very comparable to the Ben & Jerry’s one but this spoon-in-“pint” form allowed for maximum cookie dough consumption.
As for the Monster flavor, my expectations were immediately lowered when I saw the way it was sitting in the container. All I have to say is that it reminded me of the “chocolate soft serve” emoji.
Also, I could see there was bleeding of the chocolate candy coating (or what they call mini gems in the ingredients), so that added to lack of visual appeal. On the bright side, it smelled like a tasty peanut butter cookie dough though!
When digging in, I could immediately tell the texture was a bit different, probably from the rolled oats. It had a firmer texture, but still easily spoonable. Taste-wise, it was fantastic and again delivered true to the raw version.
But, I wasn’t able to eat as much of this flavor due to the richness of the peanut butter and rolled oats getting stuck in my teeth. So, I went back to eating the chocolate chip one.
If you’re a cookie dough fan, you won’t be disappointed! And if other brands of edible cookie dough have let you down, this one won’t!

seems like quite the rip-off
Edible cookie dough is one of those things anyone can make with the stuff already at home such as brown sugar,flour,butter,eggs,milk and salt. This is like taking water from the tap,bottling it and charging 3 bucks for it. You can make your own edible cookie dough at home for a fraction of whatever is premade.
But you also can make your own cookie dough for baking as well, and that’s also sold at the store . . . just sayin’.
Also, presumably one difference here: those in the health field will tell you that regular, homemade raw cookie dough indeed should *not* be eaten, due to the possible danger of flour or egg contamination; my guess is, the commercial stuff here avoids those issues.
You can also make your own Doritos, Oreos, Snickers or whatever else you can think of at home….but why do it when you can just buy it from people that do it for a living?…do you refuse to go to any restaurant or fast food joint because you could just make the food yourself at home? I seriously want to know lol.
Funny. And yes, I agree. At a certain point, your time is worth more than the $4 you’ll spend at the store or at a restaurant.
will krogers be geting this or not since they just came out with their own kind. I hope if krogers dosent carry this that walmart or target does.
I just bought the chocolate chip and I thought it tasted terrible! Much prefer the real thing even with the risks.
I gotta say, I bought the Chocolate Chip cookie dough and found it INEDIBLE. There’s some weird oily bitter to to them. And the texture is slimy. No, not nearly as good as actual cookie dough.
