I was able to try Crumbl Cookies at last! If you haven’t heard of them, they are a rather well-known cookie manufacturer that releases new specialised varieties on a weekly basis.
I’ve been following @gofredo15’s weekly reviews of Crumbl cookies for a while, and when he reviewed the most recent box, I knew I will have to give it a try.
I’m in Minneapolis for the weekend, so finding one nearby didn’t require too much effort, thank goodness! There was a queue extending out the door when I arrived.
When I eventually went inside, it was almost 47 degrees outside, and I should have dressed warmer. You can put your order on tablets along the wall as soon as you enter. They also have chip readers and you may use your credit card to make a purchase without speaking to anyone.
The interior is extremely sparse, with only the tablet wall and the bakery present:
A logo can be seen on the pink walls.
This week, I had to sample each of their six varieties, so I purchased the half-dozen package. Each cookie cost around $4. This is their adorable little box. Use our Crumbl promo code.
Now is the crucial time:
Holy cow, those look amazing. Furthermore, they are much larger than I anticipated. When I realized how much value you were receiving for your money, the rather high price began to make more sense.
I quickly chopped a piece off each one since I had to try them all.
Crumbl Pumpkin Roll
I began with the Pumpkin Roll at the top left. On their website, they describe it as a pumpkin cookie with a swirl of vanilla cream cheese icing on top. I had a feeling that this was going to be fantastic, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was. This tasted like the best pumpkin pie I’d ever had, with the frosting adding an extra layer of sweet, creamy bliss. It was silky, flavoured with cinnamon, and utterly mouthwatering. This one receives a 9.5 out of 10, with the only reason I deducted 0.50 of a point being that the cookie texture was actually more akin to a soft cake than an actual cookie. But it still had amazing flavour.
Peanut Butter M&M Crumbl
After that, I tried the peanut butter M&M. Can’t recall the last time I had the M&M cookie. But I can say without a certain that I’ve never tasted a peanut butter M&M cookie. All thought this one was only adequate. But I’m cynical because I no longer enjoy the flavour of peanut butter. I could literally eat peanut butter with a spoon when I was younger, but COVID changed it for me, or I still haven’t fully recovered. So even while peanut butter doesn’t taste as awful to me now as it did when I first became sick, it’s still not very pleasant. I can only give this a 6 out of 10, so if you like peanut butter, you’ll probably really enjoy it.
Crumbl Aggie Blue Mint
I then gave the Aggie Blue Mint a try. For me, mint desserts like Junior Mints & Andes Mints as well as mint ice cream are my favourites, thus this cookie was killer. Since the mint icing on top is truly buttercream, it is especially decadent and tasty. The cookie itself was a lovely chewy cookie with chunks of what appeared to be there & tasted like Oreo pieces throughout. I give this one a perfect score. If you dislike mint, skip this one because it is really minty.
Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie
After that, I tasted their Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie, a timeless favourite that they ostensibly never change. With this chocolate chip cookie, it’s difficult to go wrong, and this one is unquestionably better than ordinary. The chocolate chunks were sizable and it was chewy and rich. I find it incredibly intriguing and quite delightful that milk chocolate chips were used instead of, say, semi-sweet. I give it an 8.5 out of 10 since it’s decent but I can do better.
Vanilla Sugar Cookie
Next, I gave that a shot. It was quite tasty, but I couldn’t identify the flavour. I wasn’t sure if the cookie itself had flavouring or just the frosting. After giving it some thought, I realised that I was still unsure of the frosting’s flavour, so I checked them up on their website. It’s an almond frosting-topped vanilla sugar cookie. It appears to be a fresh recipe in which actual almond extract is now used! Since I love pink, vanilla, and almond flavours, I gave this one a score of 9 out of 10. It nearly bordered on being too sweet.
Cinnamon Apple Cookie
Finally, the Caramel Apple is the most striking. A cinnamon apple cookie topped with handmade streusel, apple bits, and caramel cream cheese icing. As they say, save the better for last, and in this case, well, that’s exactly what happened. The cookie with caramel and apples was amazingly delicious. The apple slices on top of the cookie, which I initially thought seemed strange, turned out to be a brilliant mix. Along with adding a nice contrasting texture, the acidity from the granny smith’s acidic juice is also beautifully cut through the creamy cream cheese frosting. This one scored a completely off-the-charts 11/10 and was my favourite in the box in terms of both presentation and flavour.
I’m so happy I finally had the chance to test Crumbl, and I’ll most certainly be doing so in the future. I’m hoping they’ll be releasing some very cool Christmas flavours soon.
