Diddy Riese Cookies

Pin It Now!
Diddy Riese is LA's version of the Bay Area's CREAM (see post HERE).  The $1.75 ice cream sandwich is a UCLA favorite and there is a consistent line out the door even at midnight.

Diddy Riese has other sweet options like sundaes and Hawaiian shaved ice, but majority of the orders are for the ice cream sandwiches.
The ice cream sandwich cookie choices are:  choc chip w/walnuts, white choc macadamia nut, peanut butter, double chocolate chip,white chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin nut, chocolate w/white choc, sugar cinnamon, candy, chocolate chip.  After choosing a combination of two freshly baked cookies, then you have a choice of Dreyers ice cream flavors: vanilla bean, cookie dough, rocky road, mint chocolate chip, strawberry, chocolate, espresso chip, butter pecan, strawberry cheesecake chunk, peanut butter cup, chocolate chip, cookies & cream.

The warm cookies at CREAM made for a messy ice cream sandwich, but at Diddy Riese each sandwich is neatly placed in a cup for easy eating.  Even though my inner go green mentality knew these cups were wasteful, I really liked eating my ice cream cookie like that.  It gave me the option to either scoop up the ice cream with a spoon or bite into it when I felt like it.
Mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich with double chocolate chip cookie and chocolate chip with walnuts.  CREAM has better flavors, but the ice cream quality and taste is lacking.  Since Diddy Riese uses Dreyer's ice cream, the ice cream sandwiches taste better than CREAM.  The cookies are nothing special, but the $1.75 price tag makes it a popular treat.

Ice cream sandwich with strawberry cheesecake ice cream and snickerdoodle and double chocolate chip cookies.  The cookies are soft, but lacking any real flavor.  Overall, they are a decent snack if you are in the area.  My dream ice cream sandwich is probably Anthony's Cookies (see post HERE) with some Bi-Rite ice cream (see post HERE), which would probably cost upwards of $7.  A girl can wish, can't she?
