Can Vegan Cookie Dough Be As Good As The Real Thing?

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to attend the BITE Silicon Valley conference — a meeting of food and tech minds to discuss looming issues around the food system. The best and brightest were there, speaking and debating on panels that were totally fascinating. But, do you know where my attention was focused? Entirely on cookie dough. A vegan cookie dough made by Hampton Creek, to be exact.

This cookie dough was so damn good, friends. Usually when someone says the word "vegan" (especially in conjunction with the word "dessert") my brain starts flashing my desktop's wheel of death and my eyes glaze over. But Hampton Creek proved me wrong, and now I am on a mission to spread the news. I'm so convinced that everyone will love this new creation that I decided to host a blind taste test at work to see if people could tell a difference. Click through our slideshow to see the results.
