Cookie Luv Subscription Box Review + Coupon- March 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.

The March cookie-of-the-month is the Rainbow Cookie. There are 12 cookies total. Instead of being individually wrapped like last month’s Linzer Tarts, these treats are cut from one sheet and placed on top of a doily. Rainbow Cookies consist of three layers of almond sponge cake with jam in between. They’re topped with a layer of chocolate.
The ingredient list is printed on the inside of the box.
This is my first time trying Rainbow Cookies. They taste more like cake than they do a cookie, and that’s not a bad thing! The first thing I notice is how deliciously moist the layers are. The cookie is spongey but dense, holding lots of almond flavor and buttery richness with each bite. There is a subtle marzipan aftertaste. Overall, I’m a huge fan. The flavors are just so complex!
Verdict: I cannot rave about these Rainbow Cookies enough– the taste is luxurious! I love the Fancy Schmancy Collection as well. I’m perfectly happy with a chocolate chip cookie, of course, but this subscription has opened my eyes to new artisan cookies. I rarely bake at home so this is a great opportunity for me to sample high-quality confections with zero hassle. I could see a college student loving this opportunity as well. That said, the value isn’t very high. After accounting for shipping, you’re looking at a cost breakdown of $3 per cookie. The price is comparable to French macarons, and a quick internet search tells me the prep time for Rainbow Cookies is double that of macarons. In that sense, I recognize the cost involved in making these cookies. Overall, the best bang for your buck would be through a longer subscription. For example, a six-month subscription brings the cost down to $23.99 per month plus $6 shipping, so the cost per cookie would decrease to $2.50.
