Let's be honest.

Cookie dough ice cream should look as close to ⬆️ this ⬆️ as possible.

We all know the difference between the good stuff and the GrEaT stuff comes down to one thing: big, glorious chunks of dough. With that in mind, we decided to put four popular pints to the test to see which one gives you the most dough for your dough. Here's what we found out:

First, we picked our players:

• SO Delicious Coconut Milk Gluten Free Cookie Dough• Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough*• Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough• Three Twins Organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough* We stuck to pints for this investigation — except for Häagen-Dazs, which is actually two ounces short of a full pint.

• Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

• Three Twins Organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Then we put each of them through the same four-step test.

We used a hair dryer on a low setting to speed up the process.

Step #3: Run the melted ice cream through a strainer to separate the dough chunks.

Step #4: Use a kitchen scale to weigh the amount of dough that you're left with.

Make sure you zero out the weight of the empty bowl for the most accurate reading.

After all was said and done, we ranked our pints accordingly:

The winner — Ben & Jerry's — had over double the amount of cookie dough per pint as Three Twins and SO Delicious, which tied for third place.

We also crunched the numbers to find out exactly what percent of the pint is dough.
