“We love our neighborhood and tapping into our entrepreneurial spirit; we realized that we wanted to bring a new family friendly business to the area,” owner Gina LaRose said.

Dessert lovers can test out dozens of ready-to-eat, premium cookie dough in flavors like cake batter, chocolate chip, brownie batter and red velvet cream cheese swirl. The shop will also serve other sweet treats like cookie dough sandwiches, cookie dough shakes and cookie dough pops.

Scoops of cookie dough are served similar to ice cream in cups or cones. Guests can even add ice cream to the mix if their heart desires. The menu shows offerings of vanilla and chocolate ice cream along with the various cookie dough options.

LaRose said their unique dessert shop will also add in some New Orleans flair with specialty flavors and seasonal flavors unique to New Orleans culture.

Cookie Dough Bliss will also offer a private room for birthday parties and events, in hopes to draw customers city-wide.

“Our goal is to have a fun, lively atmosphere where the customer service is exceptional and the cookie dough is divine,” LaRose said.

For some leery guests wondering if its safe, Cookie Dough Bliss says its “ingredients are safe to eat unbaked,” according to the website.

For cookie dough recipes that contain eggs, “a pasteurized egg product” is used “which means there is no health risk,” the website says.

The Concord, North Carolina-based chain was founded in 2017. Cookie Dough Bliss currently has locations in Alabama, Minnesota, New Jersey, Florida and North Carolina.
