Crumbl Cookies has become nothing less than a sensation in Los Angeles with its weekly changing flavors for its residents with a sweet tooth. 

What was once just a family recipe that got its first cookie bakery located in Logan, Utah, in 2017, Crumbl Cookies now has its very own franchise of 600+ bakeries in 47 states thanks to the hard-working cousins Jason McGowan (CEO) & Sawyer Hemsley (COO).

Crumbl is known for its wide range of always changing cookies with either new sweet concoctions or classic flavors, like mouth-watering buttermilk pancake and chocolate Oreo. Without a doubt, each and every customer should expect a beautiful showcase of innovative and delicious cookies, but for a hefty price. One of Crumbl’s cookies can range from $4 to $6, and that’s almost $20 for 4 cookies, which is their most popular amount.

During the week of Nov. 14, I picked up some of the most seasonal flavors of fall. Crumbl’s menu was selling pumpkin cake, lemon blackberry, apple pie and hazelnut sea salt cookies. From someone who’s never had Crumbl, I’ve never seen a better-presented cookie in my entire life. These desserts are big too, with a circumference of 4 ½ inches. Due to these cookies’ huge size, they are best eaten with a friend.

After trying each of the four flavors, I must say I am a little underwhelmed but mostly satisfied. Getting the cookies, I formed unrealistic expectations because of the pure excitement it was to finally be holding them. Each of the flavors was packed with its own strengths. It was very hard picking a favorite but the apple pie cookie definitely deserves it for its originality and how the flavor is identical to an actual apple pie. Hazelnut sea salt and pumpkin spice were fantastic as well. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the lemon blackberry because of the tart yogurt taste the icing had. It just wasn’t my cup of tea.

I highly recommend the Crumbl Cookies experience for any newcomers who are looking for some of the craziest fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies you’ve ever seen.
