I was under the impression that recipes and formulas can't be protected by copyright or patent which is why they're jealously guarded.

Someone please tell me why you can copyright a food recipe but not a drink.

I've had Crumbl cookies a few times because my in-laws like them.  They're not great.  Consistently under-done and dry on the outside.  I know cookie preferences are subjective, but as someone who enjoys the correct kind of cookie (crispy edges, chewy centers), Crumbls are the worst of all worlds.

Correct, however stealing files from one company and selling/receiving them/running your own business off of them would be frowned upon

Like moist cookies?
Just substitute margarine for butter.
That is all.
Even if they make the 4 day mark, still moist/chewy

We both have two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but our buns have no seeds.

TFA: "
Following its initial lawsuit filing, Crumbl said a former Dirty Dough employee informed them about the alleged stolen files, according to the latest court records.
'Crumbl's recipes are among its most prized assets and Crumbl carefully guards their secrecy to protect them from falling into competitors' hands,' a Crumbl lawyer said in the filing.
According to the lawsuit, Bradley worked at Crumbl's processing line from March 2019 to June 2019. The company claims Bradley used his position to learn the Crumbl's"


Based on a tip from a disgruntled former employee, the carefully guarded secret was stolen from a guy who would have still been in union probationary in the U.S..

3 months on the line and he knew how to start up an exact copy of your plant, and execute that plan?

You're stupid, the jury awards you no points, and the judge cites the case of "That's how the cookie crumbles"

on the one hand, you've blown my mind, on the other hand, I'mma try to bust you on taxonomy; Is that really a cookie?

...

There are various 'no bake' cookie recipes that are usually a sort of fudge dropped in spoonfuls and let cool.

As the cookie taxonomy goes, I would possibly put it in that category, but I don't know that I'd put the category as a whole into 'cookie'

I'd probably be more likely to file it under cookie if the chocolate wasn't tempered, as with tempering, it's a blob of a chocolate bar

If you melt, temper, and mix a chocolate bar w/ chocolate chips, put it in a split roll, wrap the whole thing in a tortilla, and dip it in caramel, is it still a pizza?

I'm confused. Aren't these just disks of chocolate? What makes them a cookie?

We picked up some for the first time last week.  First of all, I was a bit shocked by the prices.  Then we tried the cookies..the massive underdone center was off putting.  In summary:  it's a lot of dough in both senses.

Recipes cannot be copyrighted.  You can, however, copyright a written description of how to use that recipe, for example, but the list of ingredients and their amounts, the oven temperature, etc., are free for anyone to copy.

They're the baked-goods equivalent of the Gordon Ramsey "it's farking raw" quote/meme.

Correct, no copyright or patent, at least in the US. However a formula or recipe can be a "trade secret", and if you signed something saying you would not disclose it (presumably the case here), the owner can go after you for violating that.

I'm with the hate on Crumbl. Overpriced, underdone, and more of a gimmick vs something resembling a good cookie..

As one of the complaints seemed to be able sprinkles, I wonder if you could trademark the look / styling of the cookies like how companies register trademarks of their logos.

I assume you'd have to register the trademark, though
