Despite what you may have heard, it's safe to help yourself to the cookies before they are baked at the new Dough Life in Grand Rapids.

"Go ahead, lick the spoon," is the slogan for Dough Life, a new specialty shop now in 10 states across the nation. Michigan is the newest to get a franchise, with the state's first now open in RiverTown Crossings.

RiverTown Crossings is one of the biggest shopping centers on this side of the state with more than 130 stores, including 6 anchors and a 20 screen movie theater. The treats at Dough Life are one-of-a-kind. You've probably heard that raw cookie dough can make you sick, but at Dough Life, leaving out the eggs and baking soda makes it safe to eat. Try one (ore more) of their 13 flavors:

  • Brownie Batter
  • Peanut Mother Butter
  • King Caramel
  • Lady in Red
  • Mint Dynasty
  • Life of the Party
  • The Classic Chip
  • The Tuxedo
  • Monster M & M
  • The Americano
  • The Old Fashioned
  • Cinnamon Bun
  • S'More Please

You can learn more in the video below but I'm guessing the best way to really know what this is all about is to experience it for yourself.
