Detroit Dough Offers Safe-to-Eat Cookie Dough

This local startup serves 100-percent natural cookie dough that's safe to eat. Snag some at Emagine theaters in Canton, Macomb Township and Novi.

Maybe you’ve had a box of cookie dough “bites” at the movies. Now, thanks to Detroit Dough, you can savor a whole 6-ounce cup of the yummy stuff.

The startup, created by local mom Victoria Washington and Autumn Kyles, is serving its chocolate chip flavor at Emagine theaters in Canton and Macomb Township, along with its latest addition of the Novi locale this May.

“Our tagline is that it’s safe, delicious and ready to eat,” Washington says. That’s because this 100-percent natural version is egg-free – unlike eating raw dough. “Everyone used to do that when they were little. You just prayed you didn’t get sick!”

While a bit of a splurge at $7.50, this dough is a family indulgence at two servings. There’s an added family element for Washington, whose daughter, Addison, 1, has been growing up alongside the concept. “She has been at every business meeting. She is with me all the time, because I’m a breast-feeding mom.”

Watch for four other flavors – “no chip,” brownie, sugar and peanut butter – at various events and venue popups this summer and a possible food truck, too. Bonus: At the popups, you can also grab a smaller 4-ounce single serving for $5.
