FAQ

What makes your cookie dough safe to eat raw?

First of all, we have removed the raw egg component, and any ingredient, such as milk, that would require refrigeration. We also use a special heat-treated flour to make sure there are no pathogens or contaminates that may cause you to become ill. The virus that causes E.coli can live in raw flour, so make sure you are only consuming our raw cookie dough, and not anything made from raw ingredients.

 

How long does Edible Raw Cookie Dough last?

We make our batches fresh and refrigerate them overnight to ship to you the next day. We do not use refrigeration when shipping, so your Dough MAY arrive melted in summer heat. THIS IS OKAY!! Butter is completely safe to consume after it has melted. You may even prefer the warm, frosting-like texture of slightly melted dough. Just stir it back up and dig in! If not, you can let it cool at room temperature or chill it in the fridge or freezer until it reaches your desired consistency.

The Bent Scoop’s Edible Raw Cookie Dough can remain unrefrigerated for up to 2 weeks from the packing date. If you have the will power not to dig into your Edible Raw Cookie Dough right away, just place it in the fridge to extend the shelf life for up to 6 months. You will want to dig into your Dough before then, as it tastes its best. Just be sure to hide it from anyone else in your home, (we suggest at the back, behind the forgotten jar of pickles) or you might find it missing. Freezing the dough can extend the shelf life for up to 1 year, but it may not taste as good as when it’s fresh!

 

Does The Bent Scoop’s Cookie Dough contain nuts?

Although only a few of our flavours actually have nuts in the recipe, but we can not guarantee that are non-nutty doughs are completely nut-free. All of our Edible Raw Cookie Dough is mixed on shared equipment, and although we do everything we can to thoroughly clean the equipment after mixing with nuts, we can not guarantee that there is no cross contamination of any possible allergens. If you are concerned or have severe nut allergies, you must be aware that we are NOT a nut-free facility and to consume our doughs with discretion. The Bent Scoop will not be held responsible for adverse reactions to the cookie dough consumed as we can not guarantee it has not come in contact with allergens during preparation or transit.

Is The Bent Scoop vegan or gluten free?

Although our standard Edible Raw Cookie Doughs are not vegan or gluten free, we do have a vegan AND gluten free package, that contains 6 delicious flavours made completely with vegan and gluten free ingredients. Check out our packages here.

 

Can I bake my Edible Raw Cookie Dough into cookies?

Why would you want to bake this extraordinary, delicious, raw cookie dough goodness into a common cookie?! Not only do we recommend you eat it raw for yumminess factor, The Bent Scoop’s Edible Raw Cookie Dough is not able to be baked. With the omission of eggs, which act as a rising agent, the cookies would not turn out very good. So we suggest you leave well enough alone, and enjoy your delectable raw treat the way it was meant to be.

 

Does The Bent Scoop have a store?

Yes, we do! The Bent Scoop originated out of The Bent Spoon which is located at 448 John St, Burlington, ON, Canada L7R2K5. The Bent Scoop’s 18 standard flavours (12 regular and 6 Vegan & Gluten-Free) are available here, as well as a delicious assortment of soups, salads and sandwiches. We even have Edible Raw Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches!

 

Can I order for local pickup or delivery?

Our only method for delivery at this time is shipping via orders through the website. Please view are catering options here. We would be more than happy to allow for a personal pick up from our store front during The Bent Spoon’s regular operating hours.

 

Where can you ship to?

Currently, we are able to ship anywhere in Ontario. We will be expanding to include the rest of Canada as soon as we are able. Don’t worry, we will let you know when that is!

 

Can I mix and match the flavours to create a custom package?

Currently we are unable to customize packages. We are limiting selection to pre-determined packages as we have limited space and equipment to be able to keep up with customizing each package.

 

My Edible Raw Cookie Dough is on back order. When will I get it?

With our current facilities, we can only make so many packages a day. All orders are placed in priority sequence. If you need your dough for a certain date, please order well in advance (at least 2 weeks), and put your required delivery date in the notes of your order. By doing this, we have ample notice to freshly prepare and ship your dough for the day you need it.

 

What is your return/refund policy?

Due to the perishable nature of Edible Raw Cookie Dough, The Bent Scoop can not offer returns or exchanges. If there is something wrong with your order, please contact our Customer Service and we will do everything we can to ensure you are happy with your experience with The Bent Scoop. The Bent Scoop will not be held responsible for theft or damage to packages left outdoors resulting from a delivery that someone was unable to receive the package; we also can not take responsibility for delayed or undelivered packages that resulted from incorrect shipping information given during the ordering process.
