Food Review: Crumbl Cookies

Food+Review%3A+Crumbl+Cookies

I will never turn down a chance to eat a warm, fresh cookie, so once I saw Crumbl Cookies, a sweets shop, open up, I knew I had to check it out.  

When I first walked into the warm and inviting store, it was slammed.  Over seven people were crowded inside the shop, and even more individuals waiting outside for their cookies.

So if you plan to grab a snack there, get there earlier in the day.

There were two ways of ordering total, through a touch screen kiosk on the wall or speaking to an employee.  I took the road less taken and ordered a box (consisting of four cookies) through the screen kiosk.

An important fact to mention, the six main cookies rotate every week, the only consistent two being chocolate chip and chilled sugar.

That week’s combo was an interesting bunch, with cookies I had never even heard of before: caramel popcorn, cinnamon roll, peanut butter bar and Molten Lava. 

I grabbed the caramel popcorn, cinnamon roll, peanut butter bar and chocolate chip before completing my order for a total of $14.50.

The wait time was around 10 minutes, which I expected with the amount of people waiting to get their cookies.  

When I was finally given the cookies, I noticed I was given the wrong cookie, Molten Lava instead of the ordered cinnamon roll. Fortunately, I was given the correct cookie in a matter of minutes after mentioning the mistake, and was allowed to keep the incorrect cookie as an apology.

That left me with five huge cookies to try.

The cookies were warm, huge and mouth watering, and I dug in immediately.

Starting with the cookie I found the oddest, caramel popcorn was a warm sugar cookie topped with a thick caramel icing, a few pieces of caramel popcorn and a caramel drizzle.

This cookie was by far my favorite. I didn’t expect it to be so good, with no flavors left untouched. I particularly enjoyed the popcorn topping due to the difference in texture.

Peanut butter bar was a peanut butter cookie with a thick fudge frosting diagonally iced on top.  

Although the cookie was delicious, the frosting was the star of the show. The cookies itself seemed bland without the fudge frosting, although that may be because I have a huge sweet tooth.

Next, I bit into Molten Lava, named after the famous lava cake. Much like the treat, it was a warm dark chocolate cookie filled with gooey melted chocolate, and just to add to the sweetness, some powdered sugar was sprinkled on top.

This was my third favorite of the bunch. Incredibly filling, warm and sweet. Although I have a huge sweet tooth, this cookie almost seemed too much for me, I couldn’t even finish half of the treat.

Chocolate chip was your average chocolate chip cookie, but bigger and better.  It melted in your mouth, with gooey chips and warm soft dough.

And the last cookie to try was cinnamon roll, as well as the cookie I was most excited to try.  One of my favorite treats is a cinnamon roll, and I was so excited to see it incorporated into a cookie.

Cinnamon roll was a sugar cookie with a touch of cinnamon, topped with brown sugar and sweet cream cheese frosting.  

This was definitely my second favorite, with the warm cookie not being too sweet, and also incorporating just what a cinnamon roll tastes like. 

All and all, the customer service and cookies themselves were amazing, and for those with a huge sweet tooth, I would definitely recommend Crumbl Cookies.
