Miamisburg will soon be home to the first gourmet, edible cookie dough shop in the region. Entrepreneur Lyndsey Rhodus will open Spoonfull the edible cookie dough place this April at 36 South Main Street, across from the Plaza Theater and next to Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop. Originally from West Alexandria, the family lives in Miamisburg and felt that the downtown area was just the perfect area for their scoop shop. This will be a first time food business, for Rhodus, a long time home cook with a self confessed addiction for desserts.
This sweet idea for a business was inspired by a road trip to Nashville, where Rhodus first tasted edible cookie dough. She says she “was intrigued and started researching this trendy treat, which has proved to be a huge success for boutique bakeries from New York City to California.” The eggless cookie dough is made with heat-treated flour and is meant to be eaten by the dip and not baked.
The family run shop will feature five core flavors:chocolate chip, sugar cookie, lemon, peanut butter and chocolate mint, with seasonal flavors like brownie batter making special appearances on the menu. And of course their will be topping choices like sprinkles, m&m’s, Oreo’s, Reeces Pieces, marshmallows and more! You’ll be able to order it in a cup or on a cone or for a quick treat by the spoonful, dipped in chocolate. They will even offer gift packs – making it easy to pick up and share delicious bites of dough.
Rhodus also plans to offer cookie dough sandwiches, buckeye and other sweet treats, and plenty of milk and water to wash it down with.
Anticipating an early April opening, the shop will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am – 9pm. Follow them on Facebook and stay tuned for more information on the grand opening and ribbon cutting.
