In this article we will discuss the most FAQ our customers have asked us.

Why sell frozen cookie dough?

Simply put people all across the country love cookies.

Perhaps you have had a bake sale before. You understand how popular cookies are because your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors buy and eat cookies every day all year round.

Sure, you can sell all kinds of fundraising merchandise. However, cookie dough is a proven winner!

So doesn’t it make sense for the members and volunteers of your organization and their families to try this popular school fundraising product? 

Will this work for our school, church or organization?

There are thousands of small youth groups like yours that have made money selling frozen cookie dough. If they can do it, you can do it too. All you have to do is follow the simple five step process we will outline for you below.

And finally, please understand that schools return to work with us year after year because of our cookie dough fundraising products and programs.

What kind of frozen cookie dough will we be selling?

This is not the typical cookie dough you get from your local retailers. Instead it is “gourmet” cookie dough. There are different costs and different sizes.

Here are some of the size options that you have:

  • $10 cookie dough in a 2 pound frozen tub.
  • $17/cookie dough in a 2.7 pound frozen tub.
  • $17 Pre-portioned cookie dough in a 2.7 lb package.
  • And finally, our edible cookie dough 2 lbs for $17.

We offer options so you can choose for yourself. 

What kind of cookie dough flavors can we sell?

We offer many alternatives and types of flavors.

For instance, our $10 cookie dough fundraiser comes in the following flavors:

  • Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip
  • Snickerdoodle
  • White Chocolate Macadamia
  • M & M Candies
  • Sugar
  • Oatmeal Raisin
  • Peanut Butter
  • And finally, Chunky Chocolate Chip

On the other hand, our frozen pre-portioned cookie dough fundraiser has the following flavors:

  • Classic Chocolate Chip
  • Oatmeal Raisin
  • Peanut Butter
  • Classic M & M
  • Sugar Cookie
  • Snickerdoodle
  • White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
  • Cranberry Oatmeal with White Chocolate

Furthermore, our frozen edible cookie dough has the following cookie flavors.

  • Chunky Chocolate Chip
  • Brownie Batter
  • Birthday Cake
  • Snickerdoodle
  • M&M Candies
  • And finally, Peanut Butter Cup

What kind of ingredients are in the frozen cookie dough mix?

All of our cookie dough tubs and pre-portioned cookie dough contain milk and eggs. On the other hand, there are no eggs in our edible cookie dough that is frozen. And finally, there are no trans-fats or preservatives in our cookie dough batter.

How much money can we make selling frozen cookie dough?

Your school would earn a percentage on each sale. There is a 200 unit minimum. So if you sell 200 tubs, you would earn 30 percent and make a $600 Profit.

On the other hand, if you sold 2000 of our $10 cookie dough tubs @ 50%, you would earn $10,000.

So we think you will agree this is a very healthy profit margin without ever having to open a package of cookie mix!
