Alright, DC. We’ve got endless flavors of donuts, colorful macaroons, and fancy cupcakes. But now, we also have a sweet treat that’s been trending since we were 5 years old. Cookie dough. And this time, it’s totally safe to eat.
The Dough Jar has had a pop up shop in Adams Morgan for a while but now they are here to stay with a permanent shop in Georgetown. You may know them as The Cookie Dough Jar but they rebranded to The Dough Jar earlier this year. Since they truly sell edible cookie dough – not cookies – the branding fits the product much better.
The Dough Jar is dressed similar to an ice cream shop with bold colors and fun prints. The cookie dough is sold in small, medium, or large scoops with colorful spoons. They stock all the most popular cookie flavors including, but not limited to, chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, peanut butter chocolate chip, fudge brownie, and monster cookie. There are also 3 toppings: chocolate chips, sprinkles, and Oreo crumbles. My personal favorite flavor is snickerdoodle because for some reason that always felt like the fancy cookie when I was young. This flavor tastes just like the snickerdoodle cookies I’ve always loved. It brings back all the memories of this extra special treat.
The location of the shop is perfect because you can enjoy your treat while window shopping around Georgetown. Plus, the waterfront is only a 10 minute walk away. You can easily enjoy your cookie dough while watching the paddle boats – if you don’t eat it on the walk over!
The shop also sells cookie dough in larger tubs to go so you can enjoy it at home. They also have nation wide shipping if you are visiting from out of town or want to send it to someone as a gift.
The Dough Jar storefront in Georgetown opens to the public on August 4. Keep up with them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter: @TheDoughJar.
