Every week, Crumbl releases a new palette of different flavored cookies. For this week, the new released flavors were Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffin, Midnight Mint, Peanut Butter ft. Muddy Buddies and Key Lime Pie. As always, Milk Chocolate Chip and Classic Sugar are also available for purchase.

Served warm, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffin takes a different approach to an original oatmeal cookie. It is more cake-like than cookie and is fluffy as well as filling. It is heavily spiced with cinnamon which overpowered the oatmeal, making it more of a cinnamon chocolate chip cookie. It is not overly sweet, so adults might prefer this type of cookie over the other sweeter options that are more geared towards adolescents. The cookie that I received did not have lots of chocolate chips spread throughout the cookie, like the picture. Overall, it was a very disappointing cookie, and I expected more from Crumbl. I rate this cookie a 5/10.

The next cookie, Midnight Mint, was my favorite. Served warm, it has a chocolate cookie base with chocolate and mint chips. I enjoy the mint and chocolate flavor combination, but for those who do not, this would not be the cookie for you. With every bite, you get a rich flavor of mint and chocolate, making it the perfect cookie to start off the holiday season. It reminded me of a Thin Mint girl scout cookie or the chocolate mints that Olive Garden gives you after your meal, just more sophisticated. It was very enjoyable and was the biggest cookie out of the box. I rate this cookie a 9.5/10.

Peanut Butter ft. Muddy Buddies was a delicious and warm, but very messy cookie. The base of the cookie was quite thick and gets filling very quickly. When you bite into it, the peanut butter cookie base sticks to the roof of your mouth along with the gooey chocolate topping. It was very nostalgic and reminded me of childhood. This cookie has a strong peanut butter taste, and I am not a big fan of peanut butter, so I could only take a bite or two before moving on to the next one. Make sure you have a napkin around because you will make a mess with this one. I rate this cookie a 6/10.

Lastly, Key Lime Pie was a very refreshing and surprising cookie. Served chilled, this cookie has a graham cracker base and is topped with a generous scoop of key lime pie filling. I rather enjoyed this cookie because of the subtle hints of key lime. If you are expecting a tart, punch in the face flavor of key lime, this is not the cookie for you. The flavor is subtle yet detectable and pairs very nicely with the graham cracker cookie. I thought the ratio of filling to cookie was excellent. Like the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffin, this one was not too sweet and I think it is the perfect cookie for a hot summer day. I rate this cookie a 9/10. I hope they bring this one back.

Overall, this week’s flavors were very diverse and pleasurable. To rank them from most enjoyable to least enjoyable, the list will be: Midnight Mint, Key Lime Pie, Peanut Butter ft. Muddy Buddies, and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffin. As always, Crumbl continues to make fascinating flavors that many can enjoy with friends and family.
