On the hunt for Utah’s best chocolate chip cookie, we taste tested 12 different cookies from across the state and found the best chocolate chip cookie in Utah!
About a month ago a few friends and I got together in search of the best chocolate chip cookie in Utah. We each went to 2 or 3 different local bakeries, soda shops, cookie shops, or restaurants that make and sell chocolate chip in the hopes of finding the best chocolate chip cookie in Utah, and we found a winner!
Of course everyone has a different opinion on what makes the best chocolate chip cookie, some like them soft and chewy, some like them crunchy, some like them with milk chocolate chips, or some with semi sweet or dark chocolate chips.
But for this challenge we each rated the cookies from 1 to 10, and then totaled up the points to determine what was the best cookie. We were all in agreement with the best cookie, and all gave the winner either 9 or 10 points.
So, here we go. We tried chocolate chip cookies from the following places:
- Chip Cookies
- Suss Cookie Co
- Swig n Sweets
- Provo Bakery
- Crumbl Cookies
- Twisted Sugar
- The Sweet Tooth Fairy
- Ruby Snap
- Goodly Cookies
- Fiiz Drinks
- Cutlers Cookies & Sandwiches
These cookie shops range from St. George up to Logan.
We wrote where the cookies were from on the bottom of the plate, then cut them all up. We then had my husband randomly shuffle the plates and number them so that we wouldn’t know which cookie was which was we were eating them.
So here are my quick thoughts about each of them.
Twisted Sugar. This cookie was domed up high, and almost looked like a scoop of cookie dough. It had milk chocolate chips, and was soft, but the texture was very gritty/sugary. They have 3 locations in Davis county. The cookie cost $1.50. I gave the cookie 5 points.
Ruby Snap. This cookie surprised us all as we took a bite. It had some sort of spice, maybe cinnamon in the cookie, that we weren’t expecting and non of us liked that. The cookie was thinner, but texture wasn’t bad with a crispy exterior and soft interior. Ruby Snap has one location in Salt Lake City, and you can also buy their cookie dough in Harmon’s Grocery Stores. The cookies cost $2.50 each. I gave this cookie 2 points.
Crumbl. This cookie was thick, and had really yummy milk chocolate chips, but the cookie itself wasn’t super sweet and didn’t have a lot of flavor. They have store fronts scattered across Utah from Logan down to St. George. The cookies cost $3 for 1 or 4 cookies for $10. I gave this cookie 6 points.
Cutlers. This cookie was super chewy with semi sweet chocolate chips. Nothing super notable. It costs $1.49 for a cookie. I gave this cookie 4 points.
Suss. This cookie had a really good texture, it was chewy in the middle, almost slightly undercooked and the outside had a little crunch. The cookie had a nice dome shaped. The cookie had semi sweet chocolate chips. You can buy one cookie for $2.50 or a half dozen for $14. I gave this cookie 7 points.
Provo Bakery. This cookie had lots of milk chocolate chips, with a crunchy outside and soft middle. It was very vanilla-ey and very sweet. These cookies are smaller, but the cheapest at only $0.99 each. I gave this cookie 4 points.
Chip. This cookie was almost a little caramelly, tasted very freshly made with lots of delicious milk chocolate chips throughout. It was crunchy outside and a gooey, almost cookie dough like middle. You can’t buy 1 individual cookie from Chip, so you’ll have to buy a box of 4 for $10. I gave this cookie 9 points.
Baked. This cookie had really crunchy edges, a soft middle. It wasn’t super notable, but was a pretty good cookie. These cookies cost $3 each, or 4 for $10. I gave the cookie 7 points.
Fiiz. This cookie was unanimously our least favorite. It tasted almost bitter as we ate it, and seemed like semi sweet or dark chocolate chips. These cookies cost $1.75 each. I gave this cookie 1 point.
Sweet Tooth Fairy. This cookie had a gritty texture, it was too sweet for my liking. The color was almost gray-ish and not super appealing. This cookie costs $1.87. I gave the cookie 3 points.
Goodly. This cookie was loaded with semi sweet chocolate chips. The cookie had the most chocolate chips of any of the cookies, with a really gooey and delicious middle. The girls who have been to NYC and tried Levain Cookies said this tasted the most like them. These cookies cost $3.50 each, or $20 for 6 cookies. They donate a small portion of the profits to cancer research. I gave this cookie 9 points.
Swig. This cookie tasted almost like a cake mix cookie. It was a little dry, and there was only 1 or 1/2 chocolate chip in each piece. These cookies cost $1.75 each. I gave this cookie 4 points.
Now for the totals.
- Goodly Cookie was our winner! With a total of 44 points (out of 50)
- Chip Cookie got 42 points
- Suss Cookie Co got 40 points.
- Baked got 36 points.
- Twisted Sugar got 32 points.
- Provo Bakery got 30 points.
- Cutlers got 25 points.
7. Crumbl got 25 points.
8. Sweet Tooth Fairy got 24 points.
9. Swig got 19 points.
10. Ruby Snap got 15 points.
11. Fiiz got 5 points.
Here’s another shot of the winner! Look at all those chocolate chips!
Now we need a map! Thanks so much for the great research and mouth-watering photos!
Thanks so much! I’ll see if I can make one!
I’ve had chocolate chip cookies from Twisted Sugar before and they never looked like that.. they’re usually thick but flat (more like Chip or Crumbl’s pictures). I also haven’t noticed a grainy texture before. I actually wonder if you got an underbaked batch or something?? So weird. Thanks for posting this though! I’m excited to try some of the others you rated well.
Really? That’s so weird! This was my only time trying it so I’m not sure! You should definitely try some of the others though!
Very worthy taste test! can’t wait to try out Goodly next time I’m in town
Thanks! Goodly cookies are tops, so yummy. Let us know what your favorite is.

This is an AWESOME list! I am sure that it took forever to gather everything and I can’t tell you how appreciative I am at how comprehensive your list is! Seeing how many cookie shops on here is going to give me something to do this Saturday as I haven’t had most of the cookies on this list. I am a big fan of Crumble and Ruby Snap cookies are delicious. That being said, I have heard from TONS of people how tasty Goodly cookies are. There is also a cookie shop in Herriman called Rewhipped that has a FANTASTIC chocolate chip. You may need to travel out there to check it out.
We will have to check that place out sometime. Their cookies look so yummy!
