Mad for Cookie Dough

By Jill Draper

On Aug. 25, with church members, family, friends and a few politicians alongside her, Naomi Ross held a ribbon cutting at her new store, “Cookie Dough Madness.” The business is located at 9928 Holmes Rd. in the Gomer’s Corner shopping center and is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4-9 p.m.

The dough is sold in small scoops like ice cream, but according to Ross, it tastes better. “It’s not as cold, but it’s really rich. Double chocolate chip is my best-seller,” she says. She makes six other flavors that include ingredients such as Reese’s pieces and chunks of peanut butter cups (Peanut Butter Craze); M&Ms, oatmeal and chocolate chips (Monster Munch); brownie dough with fudge swirls (Brownie Love); sugar cookie bits, strawberry frosting swirls and animal crackers (Frosted Sugar Sweet Dunkaroo); sprinkles, white chocolate chips and vanilla frosting (Funfetti Cake Batter); and red velvet cake batter dough with buttercream swirl (Funfetti Cake Batter).What they don’t include is eggs—something that’s best not eaten raw.

Ross  has decorated the space that used to house a Subway sandwich shop with pink lightbulbs, polka dot stickers on the walls and a scattering of ice cream parlor-style tables. In addition to cookie dough, which starts at $4 for a single scoop, she also sells bottled water, white or chocolate milk and iced coffee.

She makes her cookie dough fresh every day that she is open, so sometimes she does sell out of particular flavors. She suggests that customers check her Facebook page for an update on what’s available.
