New Nestlé Toll House Edible Cookie Dough Is Totally Safe To Eat Raw

How many times have you been scolded not to eat raw cookie dough? When I was growing up my mother would immediately take away the spoon whenever we made cookies together and pour dish soap on it to stop me from taking a taste. "You'll get salmonella!" She would say, keeping an eye on me if I tried to dip my fingers in the bowl. Thankfully all those worries can finally be put to rest. Nestlé Toll House released edible cookie dough in two flavors and you're going to want to eat the whole jar.

According to the FDA, the reason you should not be eating raw cookie dough isn't that there are raw eggs present, but raw flour. "Flour is derived from a grain that comes directly from the field and typically is not treated to kill bacteria," Leslie Smoot, Ph.D., a senior advisor in FDA's Office of Food Safety and a specialist in the microbiological safety of processed foods, said in a statement. Eating raw eggs isn't healthy for you, however, you could always use pasteurized eggs to get over this issue. Flour, however, should never be eaten raw.

Introducing Nestlé Toll House Edible Cookie Dough

According to the Family Food Dude Instagram, the new Nestlé Toll House cookie dough was found in a Publix supermarket in Florida. It looks like two flavors are available: Chocolate Chip Cookie and Monster Cookie. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough features a sweet dough dotted with semi-sweet chocolate chips while the Monster Cookie Dough features a peanut butter dough, chocolate chips, and monster candies. Both products are made with 100% real chocolate.

The brand has yet to announce an official release of the Nestlé Toll House Edible Cookie Dough, but we are sure to know some details soon. Hopefully, you'll be able to find these in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store very very soon.
