   Frequently Asked Questions
 

This section is designed to help you find answers to the most commonly asked questions concerning our delicious cookie dough.

Do you have a suggestion for a question to add to our FAQ? Please email it to Click Here to Email Us.

  • Do you have nutrition facts and/or ingredients for review online?
    Our nutrition facts and ingredients are available online here at our website.

  • A question that many people have is... "Is the cookie dough safe to eat raw before it is cooked"?
    Our fresh cookie dough is made with pasteurized eggs. However, our dough has other raw ingredients and is made with the intended use of the consumer baking it. You should not eat our dough raw, just as you should not eat a raw cookie dough made from scratch at home. Savory Sweets insists on baking the dough into cookies to eliminate any chance of bacteria.


  • Concerning food allergies: Does Homestyle Ready-to-Bake Cookies contain nuts?
    Some flavors do contain nuts. Our facility uses nuts in manufacturing of several of our recipes. If you have a severe allergy to nuts, please be advised that any of our products may contain peanut residue, or other forms of residue from nut products. Our nutrition facts and ingredients are available online here at our website.

  • How long may I keep cookie dough in the refrigerator? How long can I freeze it?
    "You can refrigerate our cookie dough if you plan to use by the date printed on the Cookie Cube™, or freeze cookie dough up to 6 months.

  • Is the Savory Sweets Homestyle Ready-To-Bake Cookie dough product Kosher?
    Yes, Savory Sweets Homestyle Ready-To-Bake Cookies are Certified Kosher by
    Organized Kashruth Labs. This means our delicious flavors can be enjoyed by everyone, while respecting a tradition that goes back thousands of years. This is important in today's society and it could be even more important to your friends and loved ones.

  • If you defrost your cookie dough in the refrigerator and do not need the whole Cookie Cube™, can it be put back into the freezer? Sometimes we only need a batch or two and do not want to use the whole Cookie Cube™. Is this okay?
    Our suggestion is to portion the dough when received if you plan on using a little bit at a time. This prevents having to freeze and thaw and re-freeze. The dough will be okay, but each time you repeat this process the dough has the potential to lose a little flavor and may not bake up as high.

    We use only pasteurized eggs and the freshest natural ingredients in all our recipes. Our suggested frozen shelf life is six months for awesome tasting cookies! The dough is safe beyond the six months, however, it may not taste as fresh as it would have if baked and eaten within the dates of our freshness guarantee.

  • If your cookie dough was accidentally left out of refrigeration for 2 days, is it still safe to eat? It has since been frozen.
    As with any product requiring refrigeration, if you allow the product to reach temperatures above 45 degrees for any length of time, you are inviting potential bacteria. (You mention leaving the dough out of refrigeration for 48 hours). The ingredients begin to separate and don't bake up like they normally would. Our recommendation would be to discard the dough. You can contact the person/organization you purchased the dough from to buy more!

  • Can I buy your cookie dough without going through a fund-raiser?
    Sorry, part of what makes our cookie dough so unique is the fact that it is available only through a fund-raiser. But here's an idea, why not suggest our cookie dough to a non-profit organization in your area...like a church, school, little league, etc. They'll raise the funds they need for their activities, and you can start them off right by being their first customer!

  • Where in the United States do you offer your fund-raising products?
    We currently service the states of IL, IN, MI, PA, KY, WI and OH..
  • I live in Colorado. I am involved in a mothers organization that does
    fundraisers. Your product sounds like something we could sell. I noticed
    you don't currently service Colorado, will you in the future? My sister
    lives in Illinois and has purchased your products and has told me how good
    they are.
    Thanks for your inquiry! We currently service the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and portions of Wisconsin, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. We would love to head west, however we don't have a scheduled expansion plan beyond 2004! In the mean time, please visit your sister in Illinois at least once every few months to get your fill of our fresh cookie dough.
    (Have her call us to make sure she has some on hand!!!)
    We also have a mail order catalog at www.pennstreet.com that sells our finished/baked gourmet products, like cookies, chocolates, popcorn and brownies and incorporates them into gift baskets for all occasions. Take a look
  • My son was invited to be a Student Ambassador with the People to People program. It costs about $4000 to participate!! They will be sending us a fundraising-ideas kit but I've heard so many people rave about your cookie dough that I wanted to look into your company as an idea. Do you allow individuals (like my 10 year old) or only organizations as a group to sell your cookie dough?
    Yes, the answer is yes! We have already had People To People Ambassador program individuals sell. The group name we'd list "People To People Ambassador" c/o Your Son's Name. Please send us your full name, address, city, state, zip and phone and we'd be happy to have our fundraising consultants in your area get you the information needed to line up a sale!

  • How many Cookie Cubes™ do we have to order? Is there a limit? Can we order less than the limit?
    Yes we do have minimums. Anything under our minimum would have to be set up with your sales consultant on an individual basis. Please call 1-800-878-2583 to find the salesperson near you.

  • How many cookies on average does one 3 lb. Cookie Cube™ produce?
    Each Cookie Cube™ makes about 48 one ounce cookies.

  • Should the sales force collect the money for the cookie dough in advance?
    It makes it a whole lot easier for the coordinator to have the money in advance so they don't have to try to collect AFTER the person already received the product. It also finalizes the sale for you by having the money on the turn-in date. After that, all you do is wait for the dough to arrive, and for sure they will come to pick-up dough they have ALREADY paid for!
