Pillsbury is getting very creative with its ready-to-bake cookie dough offerings. The brand announced Wednesday that Pokémon-shaped cookie dough is now available at supermarkets across the country.

The ready-to-bake treats were released in celebration of the Pokémon franchise’s 25th Anniversary on February 27, and Pillsbury really went all-out. Each package of 20 confections contains 10 circular sugar cookies with a yellow outline of Pikachu’s head, and an additional 10 red-and-white cookies crafted to look just like a Poké Ball.

And that’s not all! Each box of Pokémon cookies, which has a suggested retail price of $2.50, has a memory game on the back featuring the elements from the franchise, so you can keep yourself (and your little ones) busy while the cookies are baking.

What’s more? This cookie dough is safe to eat raw, so go ahead and steal a taste (or two!) before you pop these treats in the oven.

As eagle-eyed Pokémon fans may have noticed, Pillsbury first released these cookies in 2019 as a way to celebrate the Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie that was released in May of that year. However, the box has since undergone a bit of an update.

The Minnesota-based company also never misses an opportunity to mark a holiday, and has released cookie dough with ghosts in honor of Halloween, heart-shaped dough in honor of Valentine’s Day and dozens more celebratory iterations.
