Are the Cookies Overrated?

Personal reviews on Crumbl Cookie Flavors of the week.


Allyson May, Editor in Chief

The cookies that have different flavors each week: Crumbl Cookies. As they are now introduced in our school’s area, they have become a hit for students to go to each week. Their signature style is to introduce four different cookie flavors, while keeping chocolate chip and sugar in the mix. But are they overrated for their price?

When it comes to my personal opinion, I love these cookies. Spending fifteen dollars on four of them can become pricey though. 

When it comes to their flavors, I have mixed feelings towards them. Starting off with the basic sugar cookie and chocolate chip, the sugar cookie one is amazing in my opinion; it has just the right amount of sweetness that isn’t overpowering to the mouth. The chocolate chip, though, could use some work. It just did not hit the spot for a chocolate chip cookie. The chocolate chips were not the best flavor and they could definitely improve on that.

On their weekly changing flavors, I’ve noticed the ones that have a chocolate base are very rich. If you like the rich chocolate flavor, these ones are for you. For example, the oreo or dirt cake are very good, it’s just the chocolate is so strong it ruins the cookie a little bit. 

Their non-chocolate flavors hit the spot though. Any cookie that does not have any chocolate in it, is a winner for me. Snickerdoodle and buttermilk pancake stole my heart away when it comes to the best cookie. They have just the right amount of sweetness, while not making you feel like you’ll be in a sugar coma. 

Lastly, the peanut butter flavors. For everyone I’ve talked to, these flavors are either a hit or miss. Personally I love these ones. They do not top the sugar-based ones, but they are ranked on my list. I haven’t got to experience much of the peanut butter flavor, but there will be some coming around soon.

Now the real question is, are they overrated? Personally, no they’re not; if you do not go very often. They can be pricey for what you’re getting, but if it becomes a treat for yourself every few weeks, I say go for it.
