If you are ever craving something sweet and delicious, Crumbl Cookie has a bright pink box full of unique cookie flavors for you. 

Crumbl Cookie has quickly made a name for itself through its unique flavors and softball-sized cookies. These cookies have blown up all over social media, and for good reason; with a rotating menu, they give customers six new deliciously gourmet flavors to experience each week. 

With almost 700 locations nationwide, Crumbl Cookie is more than just your basic cookie shop. The cookies are baked fresh daily with high quality ingredients. At about 4.5 inches wide and weighing around 5.5 ounces, they are much larger than the average size cookie. In fact, Crumbl lists 1⁄4 of a cookie as a serving size. 

One of the standout features of Crumbl Cookies is the rotating menu of flavors. There are always a few classic options available such as milk chocolate chip and sugar cookie, but the majority of the selections change on a weekly basis. This means there is always something new and exciting to try! Crumbl Cookie uses a cookbook full of 170 different recipes including confetti cake, snickerdoodle, oreo, blueberry muffin, buckeye brownie, cinnamon swirl, churro, red velvet and many more. 

In terms of taste, Crumbl does not disappoint. The cookies are soft and sweet, either coming to you hot or chilled depending on the flavor. The high quality ingredients shine through the sweet and rich flavors. 

The first new menu to release in the new year from Jan. 1 to Jan. 6 contained some fan favorites and also some new unexpected flavors that together created a great week of cookies including milk chocolate chip, vanilla bean cupcake, strawberry crumb cake, peanut butter and jelly, cornbread and classic pink sugar. 

If you have ever heard of Crumbl Cookies, the cookie that many people know and love is cornbread. Cornbread is one of the best selling cookies, smothered with honey butter glaze, then topped with a dollop of thick honey buttercream frosting and a decorative drizzle of honey. The cookie has a soft and crumbly texture, similar to that of actual cornbread, and is packed with a sweet corn flavor. The honey buttercream on top adds an extra layer of sweetness and richness to the cookie. This is a unique and classic twist that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. 

Another cookie offered during New Year’s week that was a pleasant surprise was the peanut butter and jelly cookie. It was a rich peanut butter flavored cookie topped with thick peanut butter mousse and a tart strawberry jam. This cookie was soft and chewy while packed with a rich and creamy peanut butter flavor. It was the perfect balance between sweet and savory and is sure to please peanut butter lovers of all ages. 

In terms of value, Crumbl Cookies are on the pricier side with each cookie costing around four dollars per cookie, $15.58 for a four pack, $23.98 for a six pack and $40.78 for a party box of 12 cookies. Although they are a little expensive, the size and quality of the cookies makes it worth it. 

Crumbl offers a wide variety of ordering options including delivery, store pickup, catering, shipping and even a taste weekly subscription. If you subscribe for a weekly delivery or pickup order, you can save 10% on your order. With local locations in Milbury, Woburn and Medford, you can order and pick up delicious cookies anytime!
