Charlotte needs a cookie dough bar.

And I don’t mean a large tray of cookie dough baked and then cut into individual handheld bars. I mean an actual physical bar where raw cookie dough is served up in cones like ice cream.

Perhaps you’re unfamiliar with the concept. Behold , a cookie dough bar that opened in NYC back in February and unleashed a frenzy of cookie dough-related media coverage:

You can’t think of anything else now, can you? Absolute gluttonous mayhem, right? And Charlotte needs it right this second.


The cookie dough bar concept has made its way to North Carolina — just not Charlotte yet.

Tart Sweets in Winston-Salem unveiled its cookie dough bar in late March and jealousy now consumes me.

Just look at it.

While I wait impatiently for a Charlotte-based cookie dough bar to open, here are cookie dough treats from 7 local bakeries and restaurants to help hold me over.
