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,” Todd and his team got to work and 19 iterations and a year-and-a-half later, Whoa Dough was created.

Whoa Dough now includes five flavors: 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.
