A cookie dough kiosk is set to open next week in New Center. Ferndale-based gourmet cookie stand D’vine Cookies & Dough is preparing to open its second location inside the New Center One building on Monday, September 17.
D’vine specializes in both baked cookies and edible dough (i.e. free from the hazards of food poisoning). The sweets come in flavors like chocolate chip, chocolate salted caramel, cinnamon sugar, peanut butter chocolate chip, and vegan/gluten-free double chocolate.
The company was founded in December 2017, and currently operates an outpost inside Ferndale’s Rust Belt Market as well as a food truck. The new kiosk will be located on the first floor of the New Center One building at 3031 W. Grand Blvd. and will open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
As America’s taste for raw cookie dough has grown, metro Detroit has been increasingly swept up in the trend. Last fall, a local startup Detroit Dough announced plans to open a dedicated cookie dough cafe in Detroit’s NW Goldberg neighborhood. The owners have since axed the plan, focusing instead on production and distribution with pop-ups throughout Detroit as well as at concession stands in Emagine theatres. Detroit Dough is also selling snack at University of Michigan’s football stadium. Dino’s Cookie Dough Bar is also now serving edible cookie dough with candy toppings in Rochester.
