About Us

When my husband Chris and I were newly married and starting our family, we would sit down every night and eat dessert...

More often than not, it was a couple of cookies popped into the toaster oven One day it hit us - these cookies could be SO MUCH better. We wanted to make a ready-to-bake cookie that actually tasted like it was homemade. We loved talking about our dream idea, but it stayed just that until our second baby was born. I quickly realized I couldn’t go back to the inflexible corporate world and 600 lb. gorillas was born! Chris continued to support the family at his “real” job, while I got to work on creating a company to make the most delicious, fun treats you can buy. Fortunately it wasn’t long before Chris joined me full-time and we haven’t looked back since!

And, now for the question you know you've wanted to ask: WHY 600 lb. gorillas? We wanted a name that would stand out. Something that was fun and a little silly, like we are. And something that you just could not ignore, like a 600 lb gorilla!

Enjoy!
Paula

“OK, OK, I'll "bite." Rarely does one get to comment on the excellent quality of a store bought product. We bought the large box of chocolate chip cookies as the ingredients looked far healthier than the norm. When tasted, these cookies have equaled anything I've tasted that was homemade. Thanks for such a great product! Keep it up!”

Where to Find 600lb Gorillas

cookies Ready -To-Bake Cookie Dough

It's hard to hide a 600 lb. gorilla, but sometimes it can be even harder to find our cookies. Our ready-to-bake cookie dough can be found in the FREEZER, right next to the frozen pies and cakes. Nope, not in the refrigerator, with the rest of the ready-to-bake cookie doughs. We use real butter, so our dough has to be kept frozen. That real butter is one of the things makes our cookies SO delicious.

If you're having trouble finding our cookie dough, your best bet is to ask the person who stocks the freezer section for help. They should be able to help you. Or, if there's been a run on gorillas, they can order a batch for you right away. If that doesn’t work, you can also get in touch with us - we'll be happy to help you!

Ice Cream Sandwiches
Our super premium ice cream sandwiches are with other ice cream novelties. (Although really, we're a category all our own - you won't find such super premium ice cream or real ingredients in any of those other novelties!)

“Oh where have you been all these years! Having just discovered your chocolate chip cookies (May 2006), I will never, I tell you never, be without at least 2 boxes in my freezer. So delicious, so easy, so "healthy!" Finally a prepared dough cookie I'm proud to serve and can do so with a clear conscience. Now, the search begins for the Oatmeal Raisin...”

Gorillas in the news

How 600lb Gorillas had a BIG start!

Chris and Paula White, co-founders of 600lbs Gorillas, share how they started their ready-to-bake cookie dough business, and got into 200 stores within the first two months!

Real Simple: Cookie Dough Bake Off

Cookie Dough Bakeoff - 600lb. Gorillas Chocolate Chip

The closest to made-from-scratch, hands down. The rich buttery flavor and soft, chewy consistency - even when the cookies were cool—drew raves. Unlike most brands, this one has no trans fats or preservatives.

Washington Post Taste Test

Cookie Dough That Makes the Cut

Our favorite: 600lb. Gorillas.  Chewy and moist with an exceptional real-butter flavor. Chunks, not chips, of chocolate make for a grown-up appearance. No trans fats or bad aftertaste.

Allergy Information

600 lb gorillas are produced in a facility and on equipment that may contain traces of Peanuts and Tree Nuts.

We use two plants to produce our ice cream sandwiches, one to make and bake the cookies and the other to put together the cookies with the ice cream. The plant that makes and bakes the cookies is nut free. As for the dry ingredients for this cookie, the suppliers for the Sugar, Flour etc do not label there product as nut free. The lines used to produce our Ice cream sandwich products are used to occasionally produce peanut and tree nut products. The chocolate we use is Blommer, which claims to be nut free. The ice cream mix comes straight from the dairy so that too is nut free. Of course an extra intense cleaning is done after each run.

The cookie dough is made in a different plant. Again they do use peanuts and tree nuts in the building and occasionally on the line. An intense cleaning is done after nuts are run on the line.

it was my goal to label our product as “nut free” but with the severity of peanut allergens associated with minute amounts of peanut protein capable of producing an allergic reaction it is nearly impossible to find suppliers that will allow “nut free” labeling. I know they exist, but due to the cost associated with using such suppliers, we were unable to do so. It is something we will continue to consider as new options become available.

I do want to share on a personal note, we have several close friends and relatives who have severe peanut/nut allergies, but always eat our products without any reaction. It is clearly a decision that needs to be made on a case by case basis.

Sincerely,

Paula White
