About Whoa Dough
Whoa Dough was created in 2018 by Todd Goldstein, a Cleveland entrepreneur and foodie who spent the last decade helping entrepreneurs get their start. In 2011, Goldstein was diagnosed with gluten intolerance which began his hunt for gluten-free products. When his sons were born in 2015 and 2017, they were also diagnosed with gluten-intolerance which only further increased his desire to create a gluten-free treat. Recognizing that the cookie dough market was a growing trend, but still left those with allergies in the “raw,” Goldstein and his team got to work and after 20 iterations and a year-and-a-half, Whoa Dough was created.

Whoa Dough now includes six flavors: Brownie Batter Cookie Dough, Sugar Cookie Dough, Sprinkle Sugar Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Visit for more information and follow @whoadough_ on Instagram.
