Cookie Luv Subscription Box Review + Coupon- February 2017
Cookie Luv is a cookie-of-the-month subscription box. They offer month-to-month cookie plans as well as subscription plans for college students. All cookies are made fresh and from scratch. Each month features a different flavor.
There are two cookie collections to choose from: Just Like Home Cookie Collection and Fancy Schmancy Cookie Collection. The Just Like Home collection features classic drop cookies (12 cookies total) while the Fancy Schmancy collection features unique artisan cookies (12-20 cookies total depending on size).
There are also several subscription options. The Month-to-Month subscription ships on a monthly basis, while the College Care Package Subscription is similar to the Month-to-Month but on a slightly altered shipping schedule to accommodate the academic calendar. There are one-time purchase Midterms and Finals Care Packages as well.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The box included a sticker, business card, and coupon for future Cookie Luv orders.
The February cookie-of-the-month is Linzer Tart. There are 12 cookies total. Each one is carefully wrapped and sealed with a foiled sticker. I love that they’re individually wrapped so that they can be shared with friends or easily packed away as a snack.
The ingredient list is printed on the inside of the box.
These Linzer Tarts are made from flour and almonds with a raspberry jam filling sandwiched between two cookies and generous amounts of confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.
The confectioner’s sugar on some of the cookies are smushed against their plastic baggie, so it doesn’t look as pristine as the rest. However, I can assure you they taste just as delicious.
The chopped almonds in the cookie add a chunky but satisfying chewiness to the overall texture. The tartness from the raspberry jam goes so well with the rich, buttery cookie and powdered sugar. This is a perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors.
Verdict: This is an amazing introduction to Cookie Luv and the Fancy Schmancy Cookie Collection. I am just blown away by how delicious the Linzer Tarts are! As someone who rarely bakes but loves baked goods, I can happily report that this subscription satisfies my sweet tooth for homemade cookies. There are 12 cookies total, which is the equivalent of $2.50 per cookie (or $3 per cookie when you account for shipping). As obsessed as I am with the Linzer Tarts, that is more than what I would prefer to pay for a cookie. On the flip side, this is a wonderful care package for college students who don’t have time or resources to make fancy cookies on their own!
