Frozen Dessert Brand Adds Cookie Monster Cookie Dough from DŌ to Stores
16 Handles and DŌ Cookie Dough Confections, are teaming up to bring a new cookie dough topping to dessert lovers: Cookie Monster Cookie Dough. Starting September 28, all 16 Handles locations nationwide will launch the topping at stores. The frozen dessert brand is the exclusive retailer for the popular edible and bakeable cookie dough company.
Cookie Monster Cookie Dough features DŌ’s signature chocolate chip cookie dough in vibrant blue, packed with OREO and Chips Ahoy!® cookies, amping up the already-do-licious edible cookie dough.
16 Handles CEO Neil Hershman acquired DŌ earlier this year in order to deepen the partnership between the two brands. Customers have grown to love the gourmet edible cookie dough and baked treats found at 16 Handles stores, in addition to Cookie cakes and DŌ cups that are popular in shops. The menu extension has also been a leading factor in increasing check sizes for franchise partners and making 16 Handles an all-encompassing local dessert shop.
“Our new Cookie Monster Cookie Dough is a fun twist on traditional chocolate chip cookie dough that is sure to bring out the cookie monster in everyone!” said Hershman. “We’re excited to offer something new to our customers since they have been loving the addition of DŌ’s cookie cakes and edible dough on our topping bar.”
16 Handles and DŌ share the common mission of uplifting guest and celebrating special moments. 16 Handles’ stores already sell five flavors of DŌ cups, including ‘brookie’ dough (brownie + cookie), vegan chocolate chip and cake batter. You will oftentimes find multiple flavors of edible dough on the topping bar, ready to be eaten by the spoonful.
16 Handles sets itself apart with contemporary store design, an exclusive and addictive product lineup, and an unparalleled customer experience. The menu features 16 different soft serve flavors, 50+ toppings and sauces, as well as a variety of frozen novelties such as cakes, take-home pints, and DŌ gourmet edible cookie dough.
