What Are Crumbl Cookies?

After developing the perfect recipe, two cousins and their family opened Crumbl’s first store in Logan, Utah in 2017. From day one, it was important to them that Crumbl customers see their cookies being mixed, balled, baked and dressed in real-time.

Equally as important were the high-quality ingredients used in each unique batch. At first, Crumbl only served fresh milk chocolate chip cookies. As Crumbl continued to grow, so did their flavors. New flavors are added frequently, often weekly, in addition to current recipes being updated and improved. The brand now focuses on developing unique and delicious cookies inspired by popular flavors, foods, desserts of all kinds – from pies to cakes to candies and more.

Crumbl has expanded to over 300 bakeries in 36 states nationwide. If you’re lucky enough to have a Crumbl near you, you know how delicious and addicting their cookies are.

How To Store Birthday Cake Cookies

Birthday cake cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. If stored in the fridge, place in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Where Can I Find Birthday Cake Flavoring?

Birthday cake flavoring can be found down the baking isle of your local grocery store next to the vanilla extract. I was able to find the flavoring at my local Smith’s and Walmart.
