ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Pizza AND Cookies...in the same box?!
(via Super Punch)
The take-and-bake places (our local one is called “Homemade Pizza Company”, which always makes me chuckle) also offer salads, though.
Let’s see DiGiorno pull off a frozen pizza, cookie dough, and Caesar salad combo.
OMG I could actually feel myself getting fatter from just looking at that package.
I can just imagine the commercial:
Kid #1: Mom, I want pizza!
Kid #2: No, I want cookies!
Kid #1: Pizza!
Kid #2: COOKIES!
Mom: [exasperated look on her face] Why does it have to be so hard to decide?
Voiceover: Now it doesn’t!…
They should really make tiny, two-bite pizzas. They can go on top of chocolate chip cookies. Like bagel bites, but you die faster.
This…this actually makes sense to me. I’ve roasted potatoes/sweet potatoes for future use while baking other stuff. It’s an efficient use of the oven.
Yeah, it’s packaged food, but that’s a different rant, right?
I also like it from that perspective: if I’m going to heat up the oven, I might as well bake a few things while I’m at it.
I’ve been on the fence trying to decide whether this is horrifying or brilliant. I’m leaning toward brilliant: frozen pizza is a treat I try not to indulge in too often, so the cookies are a nice extra once in a while.
Why not just make a pizza… that’s topped with cookies! So delicious!
I take it you’ve never heard of Domino’s Oreo Pizza? Just doing a google image search for it is enough to give someone diabetes.
Finally! No more buying two boxes like a sucker for me!
This is great news for people who are on a processed foods only, high carb, high fat diet.
Interesting that people are mentioning pot. Because right behind where it says “Do not consume raw cookie dough”. Looks like a subliminable pot leaf.
They (DiGiorno) also sell a “Pizza & BREADSTICKS!” pack which I think makes more sense. I don’t mind their pizza but the breadsticks are a little gross. But I love me some carbs… now I’m on a no carb diet and it’s sad. :(
I hear that if you send in 10 proof-of-purchases you get a free â€œI Give Up on Life!â€ t-shirt.
U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
Note the 3 separate warnings to cook the cookie dough! Why can’t they just face reality, and clean up whatever it is that makes doing what they damn well know we’re going to do anyway, a bad idea?
I saw that the last time I was at the store. They also have the the pizza packaged with boneless buffalo wings and one with boneless honey BBQ wings.
Soon to be conveniently available at your favorite Medical Marijuana dispensary.
To quote a recent Toothpaste For Dinner:
“Legalize Weed â€” Tax Pizza”
NOW WITH RIZLA
“Are YOU tired of being a slave to the ‘two box’ system?”
Makes perfect sense to me when I first saw it. I’ve already got the oven heated up. While the family enjoys the Digiorno the desert will be baking.
Of course my wife didn’t agree.
The desert is always baking. It’s hot there, in the desert.
I dislike all frozen pizza, but I do love me some raw processed cookie dough. Nostalgia at its best!
Great idea or the greatest idea???
Well, considering this IS what I buy for a weekend of smoking weed already, its nice that they put it together in one box, in one place. It will mean that much less time blowing my high while wandering around a supermarket in confusion wondering what the hell is going on, why everything is so shiny, and becoming fascinated with the idea of making brussels sprouts instead.
Don’t forget, this will be placed conveniently before the checkout counter of your local marijuana superstore.
Is this tied in to the “Walmart of Weed” article posted a bit later today? Just about enough time to bake a frozen pizza?
Thanks, Meat Cat!
Now you can eat cookie dough while you wait for your pizza to cook. Genius!
Great idea! Obviously the next iteration will also include some antacid tabs, and a blood glucose monitoring strip.
My local take and bake sells pizza’s and cookie dough, so me thinks this is just the frozen pizza people just trying to jump on those customers.
I’m just glad the cookies aren’t hand-tossed as well.
God Bless America and our delicious and convenient freedom!
I’m waiting for them to skip directly to a bucket of lard, a packet of sugar, and a packet of salt.
That will be the day.
that is too much work. Now if the pizza was better we would have a good mix.
Does it come with a frozen dime bag too?
I also was thinking this.
Exactly what I was thinking !
Whoever thought of this had a serious case of the munchies
yeah, we have that here in Spring Green, WI. I thought it was just a new normal product, or perhaps I would have posted it somewhere LOLz.
Personally, I don’t care. I do like DiGiorno pizza, but I won’t buy this. I’m sure the pizza is smaller to fit in that box, for one thing. Besides which, I rarely buy cookies. Also, I don’t see even remotely how cookies and pizza go together.
Now available in every state where medical marijuana is legal.
LOL!! Kraft’s new spokesperson team should be Cheech & Chong!!
This, a couple Lazy Forever’s and a defibrillator are all I’ll need for a romantic Valentine’s Day!
Take and Bake places usually sell cookie dough, too.
Its not delivery, its diabetes! – fiancÃ©’s wisdom

made by nestle _tollhouse_ which means madhouse in german. no further questions.
They commented on this as one of the most exciting financial news of the week in a Morningstar video.
Do they take the same amount of time to cook? If yes, that is great. If no, you are a failure.
