If a stranger walked up to you at a grocery store or gas station and asked you to do a blind taste test between two cookies, would you say yes? If it weren't for some very trusting people who did, the Treasure Valley may never know the pure joy that is Crumbl Cookies!
That's exactly how Crumbl began. A few years ago, founders and cousins, Sawyer Hemsley and Jason McGown embarked on a quest to make the world's best chocolate chip cookie. In perfecting that recipe, they did a lot of taste testing, changing one ingredient at a time until they found one that lived up to the title "world's best."
After that, the cousins opened their first location in Utah in 2017. While their chocolate chip cookies are always on the menu, Crumbl rotates flavors weekly. Since that Utah location opened, they've expanded to nearly 200 locations nationwide.
A new location at 3116 East State Street in Eagle is about to join that family. According to Crumbl's webpage, the new location opens on Thursday and they'll celebrate with a "Free Cookie Day" on Friday, June 11 from 8 a.m. - midnight. Just visit the location, download their app and you can have a free cookie.
Boise's Cookie Delivery Boom
We're not sure why cookie delivery services all of a sudden became the rage a few years ago, but we're certainly fans of it! It started with a Boise based husband-wife team who created "Cookie Riot," that started delivering chocolate chip cookies and milk three nights a week back in May 2017. "Cookie Riot" has since called it quits. Their Facebook page posted it's final update in June 2018 and their website states that they have officially closed down.
Chip, another Utah based cookie delivery service, opened in Downtown Boise in June 2018. Since it moved into the old Addie's space, it's expanded and opened a second location in The Village at Meridian in 2019.
Crumbl was the third cookie delivery service in the game. They opened their first store in Meridian in December 2018. They added Boise and Nampa locations in 2019. The Eagle location will be their fourth store in the Treasure Valley and ninth in the state.
