Nothing Butt Reviews: Crumbl
Updated: Mar 30
Back in December I was turned onto Crumbl Cookies by a coworker who brought some into the office for our holiday party and let’s just say I’ve been hooked ever since.
Crumbl is a quickly growing and expanding cookie company from Utah that you can now find shops in five locations in Massachusetts. I go to the Hanover location, but have also been to the Saugus location. Attleboro is opening up next for people who may or may not read my blogs in that area. They have two traditional cookies available each week, milk chocolate chip and pink sugar cookie. The other four cookies on the menu rotate each week. And they usually have one brand new flavor each week along with three favorites from the past. They are open Monday-Saturday with Monday being new release day. I would not recommend going on a Monday night as it is packed, I’ve waited 45 minutes to get my order on a Monday night. I now go on Tuesday or Wednesday nights. I usually end up fifth or sixth in line when I arrive and wait about five minutes. They are baking around the clock, so you will always get fresh cookies and they even frost them to order.
Since December I’ve visited Crumbl six times, five separate weeks and have probably tried 15+ different cookies. While we don’t have time to review them all, let me give you my top five to this point:
Mint Chip Ice Cream cookie: Released back in mid-December. It was the very first Crumbl cookie I ever ate and it was love at first bite. The “ice cream” frosting was a delicious mint mousse and it was on top of a chocolate chip sugar cookie. The cookie was chilled and absolutely mouth watering. This is still my favorite Crumbl cookie to date. 10/10
Raspberry Lemonade cookie: Released in late January. It was a lemon sugar cookie with marbled lemon and raspberry frosting. This cookie was to die for, it was sweet with just enough tang. It was an easy eat, I really enjoy Crumbl’s fruit inspired cookies. 9.2/10
Banana Cream Pie cookie: Released in mid-February. A buttery pie crust cookie filled with banana pudding and pieces of bananas. This was the first “pie” cookie I’ve tried and let me tell you, this shit was bananas. 9.5/10
Key Lime Pie cookie: Let’s stick with the “pie” cookies. Released just last week, the Key Lime Pie cookie might have surpassed the banana cream. A moist graham cracker crust, key lime filling and whipped cream made for one damn good cookie. True story, went back a second time last week just to get another round of key lime cookies, they were that good. 9.6/10
Chocolate Oreo cookie: A Crumbl classic, released most recently in late February. It’s a combination of their traditional chocolate cookie and Oreo cookies mixed together before baking, creating arguably the best chocolate cookie ever. Add on cream cheese frosting and crumbled (no pun intended) Oreo cookies on top. This cookie is a dream for Oreo lovers. 9/10
You may have noticed I only had one chocolate cookie in my top five. While still very good, the few cookies I’ve tried that have been underwhelming have been chocolate based cookies. I feel like the chocolate is too much as times, too thick, too dark, almost like brownie mix. Like I said, still solid cookies but for me it’s all about the sugar cookies, pie cookies, chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies. I haven’t had a cookie at Crumbl I wouldn’t recommend at least trying. I’m no oatmeal cookie fan but even last weeks Cinnamon Oatmeal cookie was amazing. That cookie might even be in my top 10.
If you haven’t tried Crumbl, I would highly recommend it. If you’re a fan of cookies, it’s a no-brainer. If you’re not a big cookie person, still give it a try. It’s a game changer, you will never look at cookies the same way again. I’m already planning my Tuesday night visit for this week’s cookies. I have high hopes for the Cookies & Cream Milkshake cookie and the Coconut White Chip cookie. The Peanut Butter Brownie cookie is even on my radar. I might be looking at diabetes down the road but it’s worth it for Crumbl.
