Are Crumbl Cookies Really That Good
Crumbl Cookies are a new type of cookie that may or may not have caught your attention. Based on the idea that “the world’s best box of cookies” can bring people together, Crumbl. Which began as a modest cookie shop in Logan, Utah, and has since expanded across the country.
You can find a Crumbl almost anywhere these days. There are already more than 300 in the United States. And more are opening every week. Try to find a store that sells these cookies. If you haven’t already.
Since I’ve recently joined the Crumbl promo code fan club and have begun baking my own imitations of the cookie. I figured it was time to write an official review of the product.
Do Crumbl Cookies Have Any Value?
The first question is, do these cookies actually taste as good as they sound? Although they look delicious, at $4 a pop, they are not cheap.
All of the cookies are unique in flavor and measure between 4.25 and 4.5 inches in diameter and weigh about 5.5 ounces.
You won’t find these oversized gourmet cookies anywhere else. And their flavors are truly exceptional. Tastes like blueberry muffins, caramel popcorn, cinnamon toast, frozen hot chocolate, and even sour patch kids.
Weekly Rotating Flavors
The fact that the bakery only releases about four or five new flavors every week is part of the “hype” surrounding the cookies. Therefore, it is impossible to predict what will be offered next or if your preferred flavor will ever return.
If you find a flavor that you simply can’t resist, you’d better grab it before the stores close on Saturday night, because it will likely be gone by then.
Crumbl Cookies is not above bringing back flavors that were previously discontinued, so there is hope! A fan-favorite, however, may return at any time. This is one explanation for the current trend toward “copycat” recipes. It’s great to have a go-to cookie recipe on hand so you can whip up a batch whenever the craving hits.
Crumb’s Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie remains a staple item, even as weekly specials rotate in (their frosted & chilled Pink Sugar Cookie also used to be a weekly offering, but has moved to the flavor rotation as of April 2022).
Review of Selected Cookies
We bought a box of four cookies and sat down to be incredibly picky about each one for this review. In the end, cookie-making is a serious business. In order to find out how the cookies held up after being stored, we also tried some the following day.
Evaluation of Crumbl Cookies as a Whole
Below is a detailed analysis of each cookie, but here’s a tl;dr version just for you!
What I like best is that there are always exciting new flavors to try and that the cookies are a generous gourmet size (talk about eye-catching). The pink packaging is so adorable, too.
What I didn’t like was that some of the cookies had a strong sugar flavor. While I do enjoy sweet treats, I prefer those that feature more than just sugar.
An Evaluation of Milk Chocolate-Covered Chips
Those chocolate chip cookies are delicious. Clearly, it has stood the test of time and enjoys widespread acclaim.
Despite the rumor that Crumbl uses Guittard Chocolate Chips, the large Guittard chips are a fantastic choice if you’re trying to recreate the cookies.
This cookie stands out due to its enormous size, enormous milk chocolate chips, and gooey interior. While I enjoyed the cookie, I found the predominant flavor to be overly sweet. The cookie was a little too sweet for my taste, despite the fact that I enjoyed the gooey center. And I attribute this to the use of milk chocolate chips in place of semi-sweet ones. 3/5 stars.
Evaluation of a Triple Chocolate Cookie
I loved the triple chocolate cookie. It’s a cookie version of a brownie, complete with chocolate chips. The perfect combination of chocolatey chewiness and softness. 5/5 stars.
Feedback on the Key Lime Crumbl Cookie
This cookie’s Key Lime Pie filling was excellent, but the cookie itself was rather unremarkable. The texture was a little too soft and cakey, and the taste got lost in the more prominent key lime flavors.
Crumbl Cookies are best eaten the day they are baked, but they can be stored for a day or two (refrigerate any toppings that will spoil quickly). Our test cookie, which spent a few days in the fridge, was still delicious, though it had become noticeably softer due to the moisture from the filling.
In comparison to Crumbl’s and other cookie lovers’ Instagram photos, this cookie’s presentation fell a little short. It looked like some cookie filling had been plopped on top. 3/5 stars.
Evaluation of Snickers Peanut Butter Cookies
This cookie definitely satisfied my craving for a peanut butter treat. Again, however, there was a lot of sugar in it. Even if it had just been a cookie stuffed with Snickers bars, I would have been satisfied. The frosting made it much sweeter, but it didn’t add much to the taste. But she’s also a sweet little cookie! 4/5 stars.
Please give Crumbl Cookies a try if you haven’t already. Pick up a Milk Chocolate Chip and supplement it with a few of the deals of the week. Their cookies with a chocolate base seem to be especially tasty. One word of caution, though: if a flavor describes itself as “super-sweet,” it probably is.
Why Not Have Some Cookies Sent to You?
Just recently, I sent some Crumbl Cookies to myself in the mail, and in response, I documented my experience shipping them, as well as my thoughts on the cookies themselves, in detail.
I go into greater depth there, but to sum up: the cookies were disappointing. It just wasn’t the same as the freshly baked cookies, and some of the flavors were dry or doughy (and not in a good way).
I sampled a variety of flavors. Including Funfetti, Classic Peanut Butter, Blueberry Muffin, Cookies & Cream, and more.
Are there Different kinds of Crumbl Cookies?
Crumbl Cookies are available in more than a hundred different flavors. Indeed, the current count is well over 200. It would be impossible to try all those cookies in one sitting. The combinations of flavors are unique and delicious.
New ones are constantly being added, making it difficult to keep up. Every flavor of Crumbl is listed, and I have a huge checklist (including a printable list if you want).
Cookies come in a wide variety of flavors, from birthday cake to snickerdoodle cupcake to key lime pie to buttermilk pancake to mint chip ice cream to strawberry pop tart to raspberry lemonade to peach cobbler to s’mores to fruit pizza to German chocolate cake and beyond. Who could possibly refuse?
