Crumbl Cookies, Three local locations

Order the Crumbl Cookies of the week. If you don’t want to try them yourself, watch this SC TikToker (with over 400K followers) try last week’s flavors + give ratings for each.

The Donut Guy, 480-6 Town Center Pl., Columbia

Think — a doughnut shop that isn’t just a doughnut shop. Order baked donuts, mini donuts, funnel cakes, fried oreos, ice cream, and more.

Duck Donuts, 702 Cross Hill Rd. #100B

Check out the fan-favorite doughnut options. You’ll be remiss if you don’t order:

Grill Marks, 711 Gervais St.

Grill Marks’ freakshakes are freaky good. We recommend the “Cookies & Cream Dirt” milkshake, made using a cookies & cream milkshake base and adding chocolate icing, a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, gummy worms, oreo crumbles, and a Nestle drumstick.
