DÅŒ (Re Mi) : You’ll Be Singing After Tasting This Sweet Sensation

By Punch Contributor Rebecca Norris, New York City

A good friend of mine has a sweet tooth that could give me a run for my money—so when she insisted we take a work break to pop over to DŌ, what I thought to be a cookie shop—it was a no brainer.

Unlike Jenny, I hadn’t done my research—so as we rounded the corner to try the latest and greatest of sugar highs, I squealed with excitement when she mentioned that it wasn’t cookies, but raw cookie dough that we’d be indulging in. Yes, you read that correctly.

DŌ, pronounced dough, is the delightfully gooey masterpiece of Midwesterner-turned-New Yorker, Kristen Tomlan. Since an early age Kristen spent endless hours in the kitchen watching her mom prepare meals for her family which led to her taking up the role as her household’s residential baker. Over the years Kristen honed in on her love of cookies and all things raw cookie dough. It wasn’t until a girl’s weekend in Philly, however, that she stumbled upon the serious question of why there wasn’t any edible raw cookie dough on the market—and from there, DŌ was born. DŌ in NYC

Shortly after she opened her bakery, she was rolling in doughy success and realized that the demand for raw dough was more than she had imagined so she quit her job as a brand strategy consultant to pursue her passion in bringing the city the best dough you’ve ever eaten.

Available in regular and gluten free options in any size for special events, and 8 or 16 oz. containers for on-the-go—DŌ is the treat you’ve been dreaming of and simply didn’t know exists. So be sure to head over to their HQ on the East Side or click over to their website to place an order. And for all you non-New Yorkers, be thankful that DŌ ships to 48 states nationwide.
