Light pink boxes are popping up across Evansville, but it’s what’s inside that has River City residents lining up for a peek. The slender rectangular boxes hold soft, gooey, homemade cookies from Crumbl Cookies.
Evansville’s newest sweet spot, Crumbl Cookies had its grand opening on July 23 at 939 N. Burkhardt Road, Ste. B. Crumbl’s first store opened in Logan, Utah, in 2017. Bree and Colby Cooper opened the Evansville location after moving here from Utah for Colby’s job. Missing their weekly family trips to Crumbl Cookies on Saturdays, the Coopers decided to share their tradition with their new community.
And the community has embraced it. Since opening, the Coopers and their team have served customers from a line stretching out the door and around the building. Evansvillians can’t seem to get enough of the national chain’s original cookies.
The menu changes weekly (except for the staple milk chocolate chip) with four to five specialty flavors sold single ($3.48), in a four-pack ($11.18), or a party box of 12 ($28.68). This week, our staff tried the cake batter, sea salt toffee, peach cobbler, chocolate cake, and chocolate chip cookies served warm and the strawberries n’ cream served chilled.
Each cookie was complemented by the perfect flavor companion, either sprinkled with sea salt for contrast, iced for an extra layer of sweetness, or stuffed with fruit for a variety of textures.
“The birthday cake cookie practically melts in your mouth, and the strawberries n’ cream cookie is the perfect blend of fresh fruit and cookie dough,” says Managing Editor Jodi Keen.
“I love intense flavors and the chocolate cake cookie was perfectly rich,” adds Senior Graphic Designer Casey Scarbrough.
You can get your fix at Crumbl Cookies 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m.-midnight Friday-Saturday.
