Today's Review: Tesco's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Cookies are a fantastic snack. You can make them in all kinds of different forms, with all kinds of things thrown into them. But what happens if you don't have time to bake them? Well, it turns out it doesn't matter, because cookie dough is delicious too.

It was many years ago that I first got hold of a supermarket brand pack of cookie dough, and I had since given up on finding it, figuring it had died a horrible death at the hands of health and safety, what with all the raw eggs and stuff. So when somebody told me Tesco are selling cookie dough, I made a special trip to grab some. 

It could be that this stuff makes delicious cookies, but I'm sure I won't find out, because I'll probably eat the whole lot raw. But it's okay, they're not just any raw eggs in there, these are pasteurised, which apparently means it's even safe for pregnant women to eat. So let the fun begin.

The first thing I noticed when opening the tub is that the dough smelled a lot like Play-Doh, and the consistency wasn't far off either. But a little thing like that wasn't going to dissuade me, I knew what goodness was waiting for me inside. Yes, it's basically like scooping up a lump of Play-Doh with chocolate chips in, but this stuff is good. You can certainly taste the brown sugar in there, it's sweet stuff with a grainy and heavy texture. It's sure to last a while too. I'm not entirely sure how many cookies it makes, but if you're eating it raw it won't take long to get a sickly feeling from all the dough you're filling your stomach with. 

This cookie dough is just as good as I imagined. Sure, it's a little heavy, and can get sickly quite quickly, but it sure is tasty. Besides, maybe if I shine an Easy-Bake oven at my ribs I can fill my stomach with fresh baked cookies. I'm sure that would work.

My rating: 4/5

  1. Thanks for the review it was helpful, just wondering if the cookie dough contained dried egg or actually stated it was pasteurised? I have bought the Tesco Ready to Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for £1.50 and doesn't state that I should not eat it raw and says it contains dried egg. You're reply is much appreciated :)
