Diddy Riese Ice Cream Sandwich - A quickie.

After biking to downtown LA and back Dommy! brought me to Diddy Riese, since being a new Angelino, I have not tried it yet.

$1.25 for a fresh made Ice Cream Sandwich plus lots of business creating lots of turnover for cookies. Woo Hoo!

I had a Cinnamon Sugar Cookie with Strawberry Cheesecake Chunk Ice Cream. I was hoping to recreate the Dr. Bob's Strawberries with Sour Cream and Brown Sugar taste. It was good but the Cinnamon and Sugar made it gritty. I might bring a brulee torch the next time to see if I can melt some of the Sugar before popping it into my mouth.

Dommy! had Chocolate Chip with Walnut Cookie and Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. This was Sinful. The Cookie was still warm and melty and it just begged to be eaten.

So If you don't mind feeling old hangin out with the UCLA Co-Eds and if you can find parking in Westwood [Good Luck!] this is the perfect little treat to end the day.

Take Care

  1. Diddy Riese cookies...heavenly (as you describe) anytime, even before and during a bike ride!

    1. boooo... i liked it better when it was $1.00... hahahaha =) nah just kidding... =) well, half...

      it's also great to buy for gifts 'cause you can get a nice tin can somewhere and place a dozen cookies on it =)

      i do like the chocolate chip with nuts and the cinnmon sugar... yum! =)

      1. If you figure out how to recreate Dr. Bob's strawberry, sour cream and brown sugar taste from the L.A. County Fair, definitely post. I only had it once and I'm still dreaming of it. The next time we went to the Fair, they weren't scooping that flavor, boo hoo. I tried it pre-packed from Gelsons and it was terrible.

          Please, describe in more detail! Or go to the home cooking board and describe in more detail. I for one would love to brainstorm with other hounds about how to recreate this!

            I haven't been to the LA County Fair yet. [Dommy! sez its on the list this year] I had the Prepacked from Surfas and Market Gourmet and it was fantastic.

          2. Well, back when Westwood was my stompin' grounds, them things cost $0.25 each and $1.00 for an ice cream sammitch... but I do miss them. Westwood is such a haul for us that I haven't been in a very, very long time.

              yup! 4 for a dollar! =) haha the first time i returned and found out it was 3 for a dollar or whatever it is now, i almost went in shock... hahahah

            2. LOVE those snickerdoodles. I also love that they do a white chocolate chip cookie w/o macadamia nuts, which I hate; great that they do chocolate with white chocolate and a white cookie w/ white chocolate. The M&M cookie is also really good; it has the perfect salty-ish cookie to contrast w/ the chocolate candies. Plus, the brownies are great too... no nuts! :-)
