Vanilla Ice Cream with Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. We knew we were onto something big when we made the world’s first Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream in 1984. It took us a while to iron out the details, but in 1991 we finally rolled the world’s first Dough – in pints – out the door & into ice cream history. Today it still reigns among our all-time most popular flavors. Enjoy!
