Crumbl Cookies is the viral TikTok trend that is sweeping the nation. With new flavors every week, a journey to Crumbl is always interesting. 

What makes these cookies so special is their distinctive flavors. According to the Crumbl Cookies website, “the brand now focuses on developing unique and delicious cookies inspired by popular flavors, foods, desserts of all kinds – from pies to cakes to candies and more.” Though some of the flavors are a bit odd, they somehow always end up being delicious.  
I recently went to Crumbl and tried every flavor they had to offer. Ranging from sherbet to pumpkin chocolate chip, each cookie was something to tingle my tastebuds.

The first cookie I tried was Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip. Super moist with a rich chocolate taste, I loved this cookie, and it practically melted in my mouth. Chocolate-peanut butter is one of my favorite combinations, and this cookie definitely did not disappoint! 9/10.

The next cookie was pumpkin chocolate chip, a fun take on this classic fall flavor. This cookie wasn’t my favorite; it was more of a muffin than a cookie, but it still tasted good! One issue was it completely fell apart when I picked it up, making it hard to eat. I rate this cookie a 6/10.

The third was my favorite, sherbet. I was a bit apprehensive about trying this one because I thought it sounded strange, but I was pleasantly surprised. This cookie was chilled with a swirl of colorful frosting, and it tasted like no other cookie I’ve ever had and was so refreshing. If you’re a fan of fruity cookies, this would be the one for you. My rating is 10/10!

The final unique flavor of the week was blueberry cheesecake. This cookie had a graham cracker base, a swirl of cream cheese frosting, and a drop of blueberries. The actual cookie base wasn’t my favorite, but I loved what was on top. I can’t say it was the most original cookie I’ve ever tasted, but overall I’d say it’s a 7/10.

Next was Chilled Sugar. I’ve actually had this flavor before, as it is baked every week, but my opinion on it has changed. The first time I tried it, I wasn’t a fan. I thought the frosting overpowered the actual cookie, and the flavor was powerful. The second time I tried it, however, I enjoyed it. The taste is strong, but after all the other chocolate flavors it was refreshing. Overall, 7/10.

The last recurring flavor was the classic milk chocolate chip. It was pretty basic but overall good. I don’t have much to say about this one because it was so simple, but I definitely recommend trying it if you’re going to Crumbl. 6/10.

When I first bought these cookies, I had high expectations because they are so popular. But because they are so flavorful and unique, I would say that they definitely live up to the hype.
