FAQs


I thought you were called The Cookie Jar DC. I'm confused!

At the end of March 2018, we changed our name to The Dough Jar! You can now find us at www.thedoughjar.com, on social media @thedoughjar, on all your favorite food delivery apps as The Dough Jar, and in stores and at pop up shops as The Dough Jar. Dough not worry though…we’re still the same company scooping up the same dangerously delicious and safe-to-eat raw cookie dough that you’ve come to know and love. We’ve simply upgraded our name!

For more information, check out the note from our founder here!

How do I store it?

Edible cookie dough contains milk, so it needs to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. It will be okay for up to six hours at room temperature, but try not to have it out longer than that.

How long is edible cookie dough good for?

If you store your edible cookie dough in the fridge, it will last up to one month opened or unopened. However, you can store it in the freezer just like you would ice cream (it won't get rock solid or need to thaw), and then it will last for six months.

Can I bake it?

Edible cookie dough doesn't contain some of the key ingredients needed to bake cookies, so you can't bake it. Enjoy eating the cookie dough as is!

So I can eat it raw?

The cookie dough doesn't have raw eggs in it, so it's not technically "raw." This means that it's safe to eat. 

I heard that eating raw flour was risky. Can I still eat this dough?

Yes! We use a heat treated flour, which means the flour has been pasteurized to make sure that there is absolutely no risk of any bacteria.

Do you have any dough for special diets or allergies?

The short answer is yes! Read on for more specifics:

  • If you're vegan or dairy-free, try our Vegan Chocolate Chip.
  • If you're gluten-free, you'll love our Monster Cookie dough. 
  • If you're allergic to eggs, you're in luck -- all of our dough is egg-free!
  • If you're allergic to nuts, the only flavors with nuts are Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip (peanuts), Monster Cookie (peanuts), and Vegan Chocolate Chip (almonds).
Please note that our dough is produced in a shared facility that also processes all types of nuts, gluten, eggs, and other allergens on shared equipment. We do everything we can to avoid cross-contamination, but please decide for yourself if our cookie dough is safe for you to eat.

    Our full nutritional information is located here. If you have any questions about nutritional information, please contact us.

    Is the edible cookie dough going to melt during shipping?

    We use gel packs and insulation when shipping, and we make sure that all orders are only 'on the road' for three days or less. This means that orders will only ship on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. If your cookie dough arrives slightly melted, it's not spoiled. Just pop it in the freezer for an hour, and you'll be good to go.

    I placed an order for shipping. When will I receive it?

    Orders are ready for shipping within three business days after being received. We only ship Monday through Wednesday to ensure that your order is not on the road for longer than three days. "1-2 Day Shipping" and "2-3 Day Shipping" denotes time in transit, not how many days it will take for you to receive your order after it is placed.

    The date selector on the check out page is for pickup and delivery orders only. We cannot honor specific dates selected for shipping orders. If you'd like us to delay the shipment of an order, please contact us at info@thedoughjar.com.

     

    Do you have a cancellation or refund policy?

    Orders that were fulfilled properly according to the customer's shipping or pickup selection cannot be returned or refunded. We cannot be held responsible for packages that are undeliverable due to problems with an address or because no one is there to receive a delivery. We also cannot cancel or refund orders once they have been shipped, unless there is proof of breakage upon arrival. More information about our shipping and delivery policies can be found here.

    Shipping seems to be more expensive than if I ship it myself. Why is that?

    Shipping costs are based on weight and location and cover the necessary refrigerants needed to ensure the dough arrives to you unspoiled. We purchase all of these materials at wholesale prices to keep the costs much lower than if you were to ship it in the same way yourself.

    For larger packages and shipping destinations farther west, we offer flat rate shipping. Therefore, you can order a lot of jars for a small price. Flat rate prices will be indicated.
