Diddy Riese is not the best ice cream sandwich The Monster has ever had. In fact, Diddy Riese serves hard cookies and Dreyer’s ice cream. And there is always a line. And it’s in Westwood. And there is never convenient parking.
That being said, it’s summertime and with that come certain expectations (lemonade stands, barbecues, June gloom). Despite the complaints, ice cream sandwiches are always delicious so on a warm summer day eating one (fine, two) makes for a happy Monster.
The Monster went with white chocolate chip cookies with butter pecan ice cream and chocolate chocolate chip cookies with rocky road ice cream. The plan was to eat half of each. And The Monster did that. But then two sad, orphaned ice cream sandwiches were left. So The Monster ate those as well.
Why go? Ice cream, cookies, summer.
