This cookie bakery has become a new St. Mary’s obsession. A frequently asked question is, “How is Crumbl such a successful franchise?” Well, the answer is simple: by charging all of my college savings on a box of 4 cookies.
Brie Voldeng (10), a Crumbl-goer who frequently reviews the cookies amongst friends,, said, “I think that they’re a little overpriced. I understand that fun flavors obviously take more ingredients and more effort, but I still don’t think that a box of cookies should be 15 dollars.”
Likewise, Erika Ross (11) said, “I’m paying 20 bucks for a box of four cookies. The cookies should walk my dog for me.”
Despite the high pricing, they do a great job of making sure there’s a cookie for everyone in their rotating weekly line-up: the chocoholics, the icing lovers, the sour candy people, and more.
Mary Clara Smith (9) says, “They have new flavors every week, so you just have to try them all.”
Another reason for the price of the cookies is the abnormally large size. Smith said, “You just have to try them for the experience… Assuming the ingredients, I would say [the pricing] is pretty fair.”
Despite all of the controversy over the cost, people still keep buying cookies. Crumbl will most likely continue to profit off of their cookies for a long time to come – perhaps, simply because of the looks.
