A Definitive Ranking of the 10 Best Crumbl Cookie Flavors
There's a reason why everyone freaks out every time a new Crumbl Cookies store opens up.
If you've ever had one, you'll know exactly what we're talking out. Since bursting into the sweets scene (not to mention our taste buds) in 2017, this cookie chain has created quite the name for itself with its outstanding combination of classic and inventive flavors.
With a menu of just four or five flavors that rotate weekly, you're not always guaranteed to get your hands on your go-to favorite when you're lucky enough to step foot into your nearest Crumbl. However, that doesn't mean that whichever flavors fall into your lap aren't going to be worth a taste! While we love every flavor that Crumbl has crafted for their beloved boxes of cookies, we decided to make your life a little easier by whipping up a definitive ranking of their best flavors. Let's jump right in with:
10. Caramel Popcorn
Salty, sweet and sticky are just three words to describe caramel-covered popcorn, but they could also be used for this decadently caramelly cookie from Crumbl. We're starting off our list of the definitive ranking of the best Crumbl cookie flavors with one beloved by adventurous eaters and those who never stray from the classics: the Caramel Popcorn cookie. What really makes this one, besides the chewy cookie and popcorn topping, is the thick and delicious caramel frosting, which is so good we could almost eat it with a spoon (but we won't, because we can eat it off this cookie instead).
9. Confetti Cake
If you're a fan of all things birthday cake flavored (or just licking the spoon when baking one), then this cake batter cookie topped with cake batter frosting is just the flavor for you. Oh yeah, did we mention that frosting is cake batter cream cheese frosting? Add this one to your box and thank us later.
8. Dulce De Leche
If there's one dessert that we could all just easily sink into like a cool pillow at the end of a long day, it's dulce de leche. This traditional Latin American dessert gets a tasty twist in the form of this Crumbl Cookie flavor though, which is built with a perfectly spiced cinnamon cookie (think snickerdoodle) that's covered in rich dulce de leche before being topped with delicious dulce de leche cream cheese frosting. This one is on our definitive list of bests because it wins major points for both flavor and aesthetics. Your Instagram story will thrive if you manage to snap a pic of that perfect swirl on top before biting in.
7. Peppermint Oreo
Peppermint haters, look away (or keep reading to be tempted to give this seasonal flavor a try). The Peppermint Oreo Crumbl cookie is the perfect treat for those who love everything about the holidays, or even who simply put Thin Mints at the top of their Girls Scout Cookie favorites. The reason we included this on our list of best Crumbl cookie flavors is that it isn't so terribly niche or overdone like some of the other seasonals can be. In fact, it's a perfectly balanced delight made with a chocolate cookie, peppermint frosting and crushed candy cane on top. And no, you won't be left with any of that toothpaste-tasting after effect, either.
6. Cookie Dough
Wait, a fully baked cookie made to taste like an unbaked one? Yep, it's true—and it's a flavor that only the evil geniuses at Crumbl could come up with. For all the cookie dough (or even cookie dough ice cream) lovers out there, this one is a standby best flavor that features a chewy, pleasantly chilled brown sugar cookie topped with cookie dough ice cream-inspired buttercream frosting and, of course, chocolate chip cookie dough pieces. If you're looking for a flavor that takes your go-to chocolate chip up a notch without going too far out of the box, this one is it.

5. Blueberry Cheesecake
Fruit lovers rejoice, we're here with the first majorly fruit-forward flavor on this list of Crumbl's best flavors. Something about blueberry just pairs so well with the texture of the graham cracker cookie and zesty creaminess of the cheesecake frosting, making it a mature, well-balanced cookie that's crave-worthy for all.
4. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
Don't worry, peanut butter lovers, we haven't forgotten about you. Quite the contrary, in fact—Crumbl's peanut butter-heavy flavors are simply so good that they deserved a spot closer to the finish line on this list of bests. The Reese's PB Cup flavor is a perfectly crumbly take on a classic peanut butter cookie, especially thanks to the chunks of peanut butter cup running through the base plus peanut butter topping and a final finish of crushed PB cups on top makes it a perfect 10 for anyone with a taste for a good old fashioned Reese's.

3. Buckeye Brownie
Speaking of peanut butter, we couldn't get too far into this list of the best Crumbl cookies without mentioning the unique and oh-so-delectable Buckeye Brownie cookie. If you've never had a buckeye—a sweet made with peanut butter, powdered sugar and plenty of chocolate—you're truly missing out, but you won't have to for much longer if your local Crumbl has this buckeye-inspired cookie stocked. It's a dense chocolatey cookie that looks more like a well-baked brownie stuffed with melty chocolate chips and topped with the classic Buckeye-filling and chocolate sauce to tie it all in together (if you weren't already in a chocolate coma from reading all of that). Oh, and to put the cherry on top, it's served warm.
2. Biscoff Lava
This cookie is literally bursting with flavor—in the form of ooey, gooey Biscoff spread (a Nutella-like creation made from speculoos cookies for a buttery smooth spread), that is. This stuffed cookie could easily become a Biscoff-overload, but Crumbl cracked the code on how to keep it all perfectly balanced with the right mix of cookie, filling and dreamworthy topping.
1. Chocolate Chip
And finally, the winner that deserves a spot in your pretty pink box of cooke every time you visit a Crumbl location: the eternal and original chocolate chip cookie. This flavor was Crumbl's first (and only, for a while), and it's not hard to see why it's remained a staple ever since. Yes, it's a "normal" flavor that's far from the more adventurous ones—looking at you, Cornbread, Peach Cobbler, Waffle and Cinnamon Fry Bread—but it has just enough of a spin that it's worth not messing with a classic. This iconic flavor features milk chocolate chips rather than traditional semi-sweet, and it hits the sweet spot (pun intended) for its mix of buttery softness and sweet-but-not-cloying chocolatiness. If you're craving a cookie at any time, this mainstay will soon be your go-to for curing your sweet tooth.

And that's just the way the cookie crumbles.
