If you were that kid (or grown-up!) who just couldn’t stop licking the cookie dough bowl, then Cookie Dough Bliss is for you. Located down a small side street in Gatlinburg, TN, it’s worth veering off the beaten path to enter this pretty, pink space and have a totally unique dessert experience. In our humble opinion, it’s one of those specialty shops that we never knew we wanted, and now we can’t get enough!

When you first enter, the smell of sweet sugar will hit you right away, and the overall feel is similar to an old fashioned ice cream parlor. The flavors on offer vary, but there is a good selection of options to choose from, including simple and satisfying sugar cookie dough to more adventurous options, like red velvet cream cheese swirl. For those who eat a gluten-free diet, worry not! Cookie Dough Bliss actually offers a gluten-free option so you can join in on the fun.

Cookie Dough Bliss creates all of their cookie doughs varieties either without eggs or using a pasteurized egg that is totally safe to eat. The result is edible, indulgent cookie dough served up by the scoop, either in a dish or in a cone. While the overall product itself is tasty and deliciously unique, be warned that it is quite rich, so a little goes a long way!

In addition to straight-up scoops of cookie dough, this adorable shop offers a few additional special treats. On our visit, we sampled the following:

  • Signature Bliss Ice Cream Bar
    Picture an ice cream cookie sandwich, but with sweet, dense cookie dough instead of baked cookies. It’s a messy affair, but well worth the sticky fingers!
  • Cookie Dough Sandwich
    Cookie dough sandwiched between two baked cookies felt a little over the top, but who are we to judge? If cookies on cookie dough sounds like your idea of bliss, then this is certainly worth sampling.
  • Cookie Dough Pop
    Bite-sized cookie dough morsels on a stick are the perfect way to try a few samples without getting too full. These would also make a fun, unique gift or a great on-the-go dessert for travelers looking to bring a little sweet piece of Gatlinburg home.
  • Cookie Dough Milkshake
    We saved the best for last: a milkshake blended with cookie dough! It’s a rich, delicious treat that’s perfect for slowly sipping as you stroll through the outdoor shops.

Cookie Dough Bliss is one of those spots that fit right into a leisurely vacation, but it can also make a local’s weekday evening feel special. The innovative product left everyone smiling on our visit, and the sweet, rich flavors sealed the deal. Find your bliss, and enjoy some delicious dough in the process!
