Then we move into the taste of the different flavors we’ve tried. We grade each flavor separately and average the scores for their overall taste rating. We were able to test out Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Monster Cookie, Birthday Cake and Oree-Dough.
We look at texture on this as well. We want to make sure it is edible/drinkable.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was by-far the best of the four we tried. It actually tasted like real cookie dough…the stuff I used to make when I was a kid. Monster Cookie was also delightful. If you’ve ever had monster cookie spreads before you can envision the same taste. Birthday Cake tasted more lemon to me than it did birthday cake flavor. Oree-Dough took a bit getting used too, but I loved the real Oreo Cookie chunks in it. My order would be: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Monster Cookie, Oree-Dough and Birthday Cake.
Texture varied from flavor to flavor. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was soft, like you’d expect from a cookie dough. This was another reason it scored so high on our taste test. Monster Cookie was also relatively soft and easy to spoon out.
Oree-Dough was a harder than we’d like. With the real Oreo Cookie bites I fully expected it to be a bit harder, but the actual dough was as well. Still didn’t effect the taste. Birthday Cake was hard. It was difficult to scoop out and roll into a cookie dough ball like you’d like. Maybe we just got an older batch? Not sure, but all-in-all the texture was just fine.
It’s hard to find health conscious sweet tooth craving items for a low price out there. Use Halo Top Ice Cream for example. They charge close to $6 a pint. Same can be said for The Lions Pack edible cookie dough. A jar costs $12.99 on their website. The issue is, they aren’t that big. It’s a 10oz jar, so you’re paying more than $1 per ounce.
Overall, if you really want to try it I think it’s a good thing to splurge and get a 4-pack (cost savings) and see if it is something you’d want to continue to buy in the future. I will most likely be sticking to my homemade peanut butter balls to cure my sweet tooth.
