Despite the surplus of specialty dessert places in the area, there aren’t many cookie-dedicated shops. However, recently, a franchise called Crumbl Cookie has filled that missing piece in the community. Seeing the satisfying Instagram posts of users pulling apart treats from Crumbl Cookie on my feed, I had to try it out.
With locations in Utah, Colorado and Arizona, Crumbl Cookie is now in Las Vegas, with a shop not too far away from campus. The company is known for delivering fresh cookies to nearby houses by the shops.
When I opened the door, the smell of sugar made my mouth water instantly. Looking at the bright pink walls covered in the Crumbl Cookie logo, I walked up to the counter to order. I sat down at one of the small metal tables and waited for a short while, seeing the cookies being created for me.
One of the unique aspects of Crumbl Cookie is that you don’t know what will be on the menu until you go inside. The small display on the counter shows all types of cookies that the bakery serves. This week’s cookies are Mudslide Nutella, S’more, Coconut Lime Sugar, Double Trouble and Warm Chocolate Chip. Ordering the cookies, I had great customer service and after about five minutes, the cookies were brought out to me warm and fresh.
I bought a box for $10, which included four different cookies. Considering how large and thick the portions of the cookies were, the price was just right. Guests can also purchase “party boxes” for $25, and that includes 12 cookies.
The first cookie I tried was the Double Trouble. Biting into the two flavors of cookie dough, I tasted a combination of sweet chocolate chip and dark chocolate. The crispy outer layer acted as a shell for the soft yet delicate inside.
The second cookie I tried was the Warm Chocolate Chip. It was soft in the middle, but still had the crispy edges. Compared to the cookies that I have tried before from the grocery store, the soft texture made me want to shove the whole cookie in my mouth. I understood why it was so popular.
To my surprise, the S’mores Cookie had a cookie dough base and was topped with actual melted marshmallows. The squishy marshmallows on the top brought back memories of summertime, and it tasted delicious. Usually, I don’t like regular s’mores because they are too rich in flavor, but I ate a whole cookie. This was my favorite cookie that I ordered.
The Chilled Sugar cookie had a cute pink colored frosting and it lived up to its name because it is the only one sold cold. Personally, I didn’t like the frosting on the top because of the bland taste and it didn’t compliment the dough of the sugar cookie. It left a bitter flavor in my mouth like how plastic would taste.
The $10 was well spent and I am definitely looking forward to going back to Crumbl Cookie. If you are ever craving fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies, try stopping by to Crumbl Cookie instead of going to your local Smith’s.
