This is a one-two punch of our buttery, chocolate studded cookies with a scoop of real super premium vanilla bean ice cream.
Better than homemade, and easier too. Our ready to bake cookie dough, found in the freezer section, pops right out of the box onto your cookie sheet. Bake the whole box, or a few at a time, for warm cookies, just like mom used to make.
We use real butter and load these cookies with generous amounts of both semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips.
These babies have turned even the most discerning chocolate chip cookie lovers into Oatmeal Raisin fans! We add a secret ingredient, luscious white chocolate. We hope you'll try them, even if you aren't usually an oatmeal raisin fan.
Cookies and ice cream are a match made in gorilla heaven!
Two delicious chocolate cookies are paired with one big scoop of real cream ice cream, swirled with ribbons of salted caramel.
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!
“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!”

“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...”

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!
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.
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.
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.
