Review

๐ŸŸซ CINNAMON SQUARE
Score: 6.5 / 10
Basically, like if you put together yellow cake and a cinnamon roll. It’s soft, though, compared to a cinnamon roll, not quite as spongey or sweet. At the same time, not as dry or crumbly as a regular yellow cake. It’s pretty sweet overall and there’s a decent bit of cinnamon and tasty sugary frosting on top. Personally, I’d still prefer a cinnamon roll because they’re generally more cinnamony sweet and spongey.

๐Ÿฅœ PEANUT BUTTER FT. REESE’S PIECES
Score: 7.5 / 10
A spot on Reese’s lovers cookie. You can definitely taste the buttery cookie mixed in with a bunch of Reese’s. Nowhere near as sweet as the candy itself, it still brings enough peanut buttery sweetness to the table. Notably, the embedded Reese’s Pieces don’t add anything in terms of taste or texture as the baking process left them super soft!

๐Ÿฅ CANNOLI
Score: 7.5 / 10
I feel like cannolis are a hint sweeter than this. The cookie-to-frosting ratio is also off as it’s mostly cookie. These two cookies that sandwich the frosting definitely have that typical buttery cannoli shell favor and the texture is soft, a little dry, and just about right. The inner frosting does remind me of cannoli filling but it’s lighter, less thick, and the taste is slightly different–not sure exactly what it is. Overall, needs less cookie and more actual frosting that feels and tastes like cannoli filling. Still, a close enough rendition to a cannoli in cookie form!

๐Ÿฅ› COOKIES & CREAM
Score: 6 / 10
On the drier side compared to other crumbl cookies. There is a cookies and cream taste, though, it could be sweeter to really bring out the flavors more. Perhaps adding more frosting like they did with the Oreo Milkshake version.
