Crumbl Cookies is a popular dessert shop in Vienna that specializes in making unique cookies. Every week, they rotate through new and different cookie flavors, sometimes to match upcoming holidays and the season.

Apple Pie: I wasn’t expecting much from this cookie, but it was actually a good representation of an apple pie. The apples on top were still crunchy the next day, and the dough was really soft, so they complemented each other well. It would taste even better warmed up. The overall rating is an 8/10.

Strawberry Cake: This one has a really intense, artificial strawberry flavor. It wasn’t bad, but I thought it was too strong and sweet, which reminded me of a strawberry flavored candy and not necessarily actual strawberry. The cookie itself had small strawberry chunks in the dough that added some texture, and the presentation of the cookie was cute too. The overall rating is a 6/10.

Pumpkin Cake: The cookie itself had an accurate pumpkin flavor, and I didn’t think it was bad, but I personally don’t really enjoy pumpkin flavoring. The icing had a slight bitter taste that made me think I was eating chemicals, and it left a weird residual aftertaste and feeling in my mouth. The overall rating is a 4/10.

Lemon Blackberry: Right off the bat, the cookie was really ugly and did not look like how it was advertised. The icing was grayish and I thought the cookie was borderline raw, so this cookie flopped. It had a really intense lemon flavor, so if you enjoy lemon desserts, you would probably like the flavor—I personally didn’t. The overall rating is a 3/10.

Chocolate Pumpkin: This was one of the most vile things I have ever put in my mouth and it was highly unappealing to look at, too. The icing was bright orange and had a strong, weird flavor that was supposed to be pumpkin but failed. It also left a disgusting bitterness in the back of my throat. The cookie itself wasn’t as terrible as the icing was, but it was not a good chocolate flavor. The way it looked also made me think I was eating burnt dough. This cookie should never have made it out of their cookie idea drafts; chocolate and pumpkin together is an atrocious mistake. The overall rating is a 2/10, which is being generous.
