Crumbl Cookie has been a sensation since the bakery started. I was obsessed with them as soon as I had my first bite.

My hopes for these cookies are high because the flavors change every week. I have to decide every week if the cookie flavors are worth driving to Gig Harbor for. If this week’s are not, I will be personally mailing this article to Crumbl’s Corporate office.

Milk Chocolate Chip I feel will be low on the list. This flavor stays on their list every week, but it’s a basic flavor and I think that it will be hard to elevate.

White Chocolate Chip is a new flavor this week; but again, kind of a basic flavor so I don’t know how they will make it better.

Molten Lava: I absolutely love molten lava cake, so I do have high hopes for this cookie. 

Classic Peanut Butter: I again think that it will be hard to elevate, but I love peanut butter so I think that it will be high ranking on the list.

Graham Cracker ft. Teddy Grahams: I like graham crackers and I was in love with Teddy Grahams when I was younger, so I’m thinking that it will be number two on the list.

Limeade: I don’t know how I will feel about this one. I like my lemon and lime flavors to be tart. So depending on this flavor the cookie might either be last on the list or rank really high.

After trying all of this week’s flavors I am pleasantly surprised and disappointed. Here is the ranking:

  1. Molten Lava, this cookie met all of my expectations and honestly exceeds them. The cookie itself has the perfect crunchiness, and the molten inside is perfect. If you love chocolate pudding then you will love this cookie. But be warned that if you don’t like chocolate you will hate this. While it’s my favorite cookie out of this batch, it is not my favorite Crumbl Cookie, mint chocolate chip takes the cake of best Crumbl Cookie yet.
  2. Milk Chocolate Chip, honestly the biggest surprise of the batch. Perfect mix between crunchy and soft. The chocolate melts in your mouth.
  3. Limeade, it was a little too sweet for my liking but the cookie is the sugar cookie base so if you like that you will like this. The frosting is amazing, the perfect lime flavor. The cookie with the frosting itself falls a little flat but it could be made superior by adding lime zest or candied limes. I think that if they were to add some lime juice and zest that it would make the cookie more refreshing and would turn this into the best summer cookie.
  4. Classic Peanut Butter, it has an amazing peanut butter flavor, it even sticks to the roof of your mouth like you are eating a spoonful of peanut butter. But it is a little doughy, the outside could be crunchier, like how they made the milk chocolate chip one.
  5. Graham Cracker Ft. Teddy Grahams, the cookie was very sweet, and it  doesn’t taste like honey but does feel like it. The whole cookie was very sticky. The frosting was nice but could use more cream cheese, and the cookie could be crunchier.
  6. White Chocolate Chip, it was very sweet. I think that if you like white chocolate then it would be good. I think that it would be better if there were nuts or pretzels to even out the sweetness.

Overall I’m not disappointed with this week’s flavors. Crumbl’s Coporate won’t be hearing from me this week, unless you want to sponsor me by paying for the cookies for these reviews.
