You never know when you’re going to need a lot of cookie dough. Maybe you have a feeling you’re about to go through a breakup. Maybe you get invited to an unexpected cookie bakeoff. Maybe the apocalypse starts and you just want to have some essential supplies to ride things out.
Well, no matter the reason you might need cookie dough, you’re gonna want to head to Costco ASAP. Why? Because they’re currently selling a gargantuan, 76-ounce tub of cookie dough. Just look at this absolute unit.
That’s right. We’re talking 4.75 pounds of that pure cookie dough. If you guesstimate one ounce of cookie dough is equal to one cookie (sounds about right to me), you’re looking at nearly six baker’s dozen chocolate chip cookies from a single, bountiful source.
If you’re overwhelmed by the prospect of baking 76 cookies at once, fret not. This beautiful bucket of Pillsbury dough can be frozen for up to two months, making it perfect for any incremental or indecisive bakers who can’t predict when their next moment of baking inspiration will strike.
Because Costco, home to many oversized treats, is what it is, this large vat of cookie dough goes down as a hell of a deal. With a suggested retail price of $7.89, that’s just over ten cents per ounce of cookie dough. I swear there are probably places in Manhattan that’ll charge you more than that for one cookie, so I’d say you might as well just snatch up this offer while you can. Just make sure you bake enough cookies to share.
