Best do-good guilty pleasure: DOUGH NATION

Best do-good guilty pleasure

If you don’t immediately want to lick the spoon (and bowl) after baking cookies, are you even human? Dough Nation lets you have your cookie dough and eat it, too — offering not-yet-baked goods in a range of flavors, from chocolate chip and caramel to dark chocolate and s’mores. What’s more, the downtown Tampa sweets shop is owned and operated by Metropolitan Ministries, so all of the proceeds from your edible cookie dough benefit the local nonprofit. It’s a total do-good guilty pleasure. 505 N. Tampa St., Tampa. 813-227-9248, doughnation.com. —AQC
