As much as I enjoy baking homemade cookies, there’s something special about going to a cookie shop like Crumbl Cookie. You’re met with mouthwatering scents and plenty of yummy cookie choices when you walk inside the store. It’s truly an experience.
With delicious, irresistible flavors, it’s easy to see why many purchase a pack of Crumbl cookies rather than a single treat. However, if you don’t know how to store them properly, you might end up with some dried-out, yucky crumbl cookies.
Storing Crumbl cookies is easy. The best way to store them is to wrap them tightly with plastic wrap and place them inside an airtight container in a single layer. They’ll remain good for two days at room temperature, a week in the fridge, or six months in the freezer.

How to Store Crumbl Cookies
As delicious as Crumbl cookies are, it would be challenging to plow through an entire pack of 12 cookies in one sitting. That said, knowing how to store Crumbl cookies correctly is imperative. Thankfully, it’s not challenging.
1. Wrap Each Crumbl Cookie Individually
Start by taking the Crumbl cookies out of the container they came in.
While some people prefer to keep them inside the original box, I don’t recommend it. The boxes provided by Crumbl Cookie do not provide an adequate seal to lock in freshness. Therefore, your cookies might go stale before you want them to.
Instead, remove the cookies and wrap each individually with plastic or aluminum foil.
I suggest using plastic wrap. It will provide a tighter cling to your cookie, ensuring it stays fresh and delicious. You’ll also get to see the cookie – and trust me, Crumbl cookies are so gorgeous, you’ll want to look at them.
2. Place in an Airtight Container or Sealable Bag
You could stop at the plastic wrap. But why would you? If you want to ensure your Crumbl cookies don’t get hard and stale, I highly recommend adding another layer of protection.
You have two choices:
- Place them inside an airtight container, or
- Place them inside a resealable freezer bag.
Both options will work like magic. The key is to ensure there is a tight seal, whether you’re using a container or a bag.
Also, make sure that your cookies are stored in a single layer – especially if they’re vividly decorated. The last thing you want to do is mess with the beautiful decor of your Crumbl cookies.
3. Store at Room Temp, in the Fridge, or in the Freezer.
You have three options for storage.
The ideal spot for Crumbl cookies is room temperature. There is little risk of them drying out, which can easily occur in the fridge or freezer without proper storage. They’ll retain their texture and flavor. However, they won’t last very long – two days maximum.
Your second option is the refrigerator. In the fridge, Crumbl cookies can last up to seven days. Crumbl recommends storing “Chilled” cookies immediately in the fridge. “Regular” Crumbl cookies can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
If you want long-term storage, the freezer is your best bet. When properly stored, Crumbl cookies will remain scrumptious for up to six months.
Tip: Wherever you store your Crumbl cookies, keep them away from items with a pungent odor. You don’t want your cookies to take on the scent and flavor of other things.
How Long Do Crumbl Cookies Last?
Storing Crumbl cookies is easy. It really comes down to wrapping them individually and storing them in a container or resealable bag. Easy-peasy, lemon squeezy.
How long will they last, though?
Well, that depends solely on where they’re stored.
Let’s take a closer look.
1. At Room Temp (Up to Two Days)
As I mentioned earlier, the ideal spot for storage is at room temperature. This will ensure that your Crumbl cookies retain their texture and flavors.
However, you don’t get a very long shelf life when stored at room temperature – only up to two days.
Sure, the Crumbl cookies might be “safe” to eat for up to five days, but at this point, they won’t be too pleasant to consume.
2. In the Fridge (Up to Seven Days)
The refrigerator is an excellent choice if you need to prolong the shelf life of your Crumbl cookies.
This will also be the better choice for those who live in warmer climates, where the temperature of their kitchen will exceed 70F.
Crumbl cookies will remain fresh and yummy for up to seven days when stored in the refrigerator.
Note: The “Chilled” variety of Crumbl cookies should be stored in the refrigerator (or freezer). They will lose their texture at room temp.
3. In the Freezer (Up to Six Months)
Lastly, you can store your Crumbl cookies in the freezer.
Crumbl cookies will remain good for up to six months when stored in the freezer. However, you should eat them before that timeframe. I always say the sooner, the better when it comes to eating items.
And honestly, do you really think it will take six months to feast on these delectable cookies? I don’t think so.
If you haven’t had a Crumbl cookie, I highly recommend you give them a try. And when you inevitably buy a box for later, make sure you store them correctly. Oh, and also, take a look at these frequently asked questions to help you out.
Do I have to refrigerate Crumbl Cookies?
You do not have to refrigerate Crumbl cookies, but it’s a good idea to extend their longevity. Crumbl Cookie recommends refrigerating their “Chilled” varieties immediately so they do not lose their iconic texture.
How many calories are in a Crumbl cookie depends mainly on the type of cookie you’re ordering. However, you can expect a large chunk of Crumbl cookies to hover around 500 calories or more. For instance, their Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie is 560 calories.
Are Crumbl Cookies made fresh?
Crumbl Cookies are made fresh daily and are one of the standout features of this cookie empire. Pair that with their rotating weekly menu, and you can rest assured you’ll find a fresh and delicious Crumbl cookie flavor you’ll want to devour.

If you buy a box of Crumbl cookies and can’t finish them all in one sitting, you have options for storage. Whether you keep them at room temperature, in the fridge, or in the freezer, start by wrapping each individually and then put them in a container or bag. Place them in a single layer so you do not ruin the decorations on top.
