Behold Ben & Jerry’s newest creation — Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Dough Chunks. 

Both flavors come in half-pound bags and contain the same dough that’s packed into the ice cream. 

According to a statement, these are safe to consume raw because they’re made with pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour. 

However, they do need to be kept in a freezer to preserve ultimate freshness. 

Unfortunately, the cookie dough bites are only being tested at the Burlington scoop shop and Waterbury Factory, which makes sense since Ben & Jerry’s is based in Vermont. 

But, officials say if the market test is successful, dough chunks could be available to other markets later this year. 

Junk food Instagrammer @junkbanter announced the launch to his followers and the post has since garnered more than 10,000 likes.

Don’t let us down, Vermont!
