“Made with the same ingredients you use in your mixing bowl at home, but it’s safe to eat right from the tub,” says Nestlé Toll House Funfetti Edible Cookie Dough with Candy Sprinkles.

“Go ahead, dig in!”

Oh boy. We’ve always wanted to rip into a tub of white flour, sugar, water, butter, and dyed candy sprinkles that are made largely of sugar, corn starch, palm oil, and palm kernel oil.

As the label says, it’s “made with 100% real fun!” And it’s hard to imagine more fun than swallowing a palette of artificial food dyes—like Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, and Red 3. Who needs colorful fruit, when you can eat dyed sugar?

The Nutrition Facts “serving” is two flat tablespoons, so the label shows only 140 calories, 2½ grams of saturated fat, and 3½ teaspoons of added sugar. That’s about what you’d get in a Twinkie.

But how many cookie dough fans are scooping up just two (non-heaping) tablespoons? When it comes to ice cream, many people don’t stop after ½ cup. That’s eight tablespoons.

“This expanded collection of edible cookie doughs provides even more ways to create fun, lasting memories while snacking on your favorite treats—no baking needed!” said Nestlé Toll House’s associate brand manager in a press release.

Lasting, indeed.
