In news that’ll make you nostalgic for a youth spent in your grandma’s kitchen, baking cookies and licking the bowl, you can now purchase cookie dough to eat with a spoon, ice cream style.
That’s not a sentence we ever thought we’d write but since we’re (cough) a little over 30, we’re also kind of wondering how this has only just become a thing.
It certainly has though. Just Dough It are the biz behind the concept of literally dishing out raw cookie dough via UberEATS and pop events around the Coast. And you can jump on that bandwagon as of right now.
The foodie venture came about when cookie connoisseurs Zachary and Caitlynn realised (after consuming probably-not-safe cookie dough) nobody in Australia was providing the goods and thus, a dream was born.
They also wanted to invoke that previously mentioned nostalgia and listen to people’s childhood baking stories, so props for that.
Turns out eating raw cookie dough generally isn’t that good for you so Just Dough It have removed the eggs and heat treated the flour, therefore completely eliminating the need to ever eat another dessert again.
Flavours range from choc chip to brownie, a combination of Milo and Tim Tams and strawberry cheesecake. SIGN US UP.
Just Dough It currently offer the tasty treats on UberEATS in Burleigh and Coomera and you can also hire them for private events.
The plan is to open their very own little space later on this year and 2018 is shaping up to be a goodie.
Just Dough It will celebrate their first birthday with a pop up shop at The Lanes Easter Market this weekend, so you’ll get the chance to taste test some limited edition flavours.
Happy Easter indeed.
LOCATION: The Lanes Easter Market from 3-9pm on Saturday at Lakeview Blvd throughout the Easter long weekend.

If you’ve recently found yourself thinking, “there really aren’t enough bars purely dedicated to desserts in the world” you’re not alone and you’re also in luck.
This weekend Burleigh Heads will welcome, you guessed it, a bar purely dedicated to desserts and get out of our way, we’re first in line.
Oh My, Waffle will soon be dishing up the waffle desserts of your dreams thanks to the sweet, after-dinner-dish loving hearts of two local gals, Jessica and Courtney, who are now our favourite people on the whole Gold Coast (sorry everyone else).
The pair say they got their inspiration from decadent waffle creations in Belgium and wanted to bring the tasty treats to the Coast, with a unique little spin of course.
Plus, as you’d well know coffee lovers, it is a fact that there aren’t too many places to grab a cuppa after 2pm around here so the girls are changing that up too with coffees available from morning until night (seeya sleep).
Coupla favourites on the menu are certain to the be the Let’s Get Lit made up of a golden waffle, toasted marshmallows, crushed biscuits and Maltesers drizzled with Whittaker’s Creamy Milk Chocolate! Seriously, help us.
Also the Drop It Like It’s Hot because it’s red velvet hot chocolate, with red velvet cake crumbs and house-made cream cheese frosting and actual dessert dreams come true.
On the menu there’ll be eight types of waffles plus two vegan ones, six milkshakes, a range of gourmet hot chocolates and the option to build your own waffle. So yeah, you can eat two things every day for a week, rinse and repeat.
We hear the interior is the relaxed, good time atmosphere you’d imagine your happy place to be and it comes complete with sneaky artworks praising those who love a good cheat day (us, every day).
Oh My, Waffle coming to a Burleigh near you this weekend.
LOCATION: Underneath The Ambience Tower, 1837 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads
