Crumbl Cookies opens up to an enthusiastic audience; Inauguration of Kung Fu Tea



On Thursday, Crumbl Cookies opened at 4400 Midland Drive, Suite 501, to an enthusiastic Midland audience. The previous afternoon, owners Chasen Tolbert and Jordan Sorensen wanted to test their employees. They ended up having a queue at the door for passers-by and seeing that they were open. The chef’s logo wall, outdoor kitchen, and pink boxes also provided a perfect photo opportunity.

“It’s not just how good the cookies are, it’s like an experience when people walk in they notice the employees mixing and breaking eggs, rolling the dough,” Tolbert said. “It’s all the smells and pictures that go with it, like the pink boxes and cookies are good on top too.”

The store will also have the Crumbl Cookies brand of ice cream available in July. The store will sell ice cream separately in pints. Certain flavors correlate with cookies, and he said he’s familiar with churro, biscoff, and other flavors that come with the rotating menu.

Every Monday, Crumbl Cookies offers a menu of new flavors. Favorite milk chocolate chips and chilled sugar cookies are still on the menu, but the other four options change weekly.

“Crumbl is unveiling the new flavors on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) on Sunday evening,” he said. “Everyone is chomping at the bit on these pages, and then we have a line Monday from everyone who wants to try the new flavors.”

Flavors this week to celebrate July 4th include a Mallow Sandwich with Oreo (a marshmallow whipped corn with Oreos sandwiched between two chocolate cookies rolled in Oreo and topped with brownie chunks and chunks of Oreo), cornbread (a sweet cornbread cookie topped with honey butter frosting and topped with a dollop of honey buttercream frosting), hazelnut mud flow (a milk chocolate cookie filled with fondant Nutella and topped with gooey milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts), patriotic birthday cake (a hot cake dough cookie topped with patriotic cream cheese frosting and patriotic sprinkle cake) and walnut lime coconut (a fresh lime and coconut sugar cookie topped with a slightly tangy lime frosting and finished with a fresh lime wedge).

The boutique is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday and from 8 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. Delivery is available through DoorDash or cookies can be picked up curbside through the Crumbl Cookies app. Tolbert said the store would also have drivers to make deliveries. The store has two kiosks for quick payment for customers familiar with the store.
