I tried Crumbl Cookies, so you don't have to. Are they worth the wait?
The Shreveport Crumbl opened, and I tried it.
I tried Crumbl Cookies, so you didn't to have to wait in line. Here's what you need to know about this new Shreveport craze.
On Nov. 5, a Shreveport family welcomed Crumbl to the area with their grand opening. After a year of securing a location and creating a storefront the signature pink boxes made an appearance on a busy Friday.
"We know that it's been a little bit of a wait," said Brad King Owner and Operator of Crumbl. "So, we are just thrilled that we're finally here."
On opening day, I decided to test my luck and made a mobile order at the Youree Drive location. When I arrived, the store was bustling with workers as they greeted and swiftly directed me to the pickup location.
When I said my name, it was like magic, the pink box appeared and was immediately placed in my hand. I could feel the warmth of the cookie radiate through the box.
For my grand taste test, I ordered the cornbread honey cake. This 6 oz. cookie spotlighted a grainy cornbread-inspired recipe but was topped with cream cheese icing and a bit of honey.
This cookie came out to be over 700 calories and offered a sweet treat for days.
Was it worth it?
The cornbread honey cake cookie was worth the $4.38. Since that trip, I have explored many different flavors and can assure you the wait is worth it.
But don't get too comfortable with a specific flavor. The menu is constantly changing each week. The one cookie that remains a constant is the chocolate chip.
If you are interested in tasting the weekly menu, customers can choose boxes of four or six. The box of four cookies costs $14.28 and the box of six is $21.98.
