It’s one of the very first places I learned about as freshman at UCLA. I learned about it from my roommate Vicky and I can still remember the very first night I visited this sweet little cookie shop with friends in the heart of Westwood. It was a cold night and the lines were filled with UCLA students. It didn’t take too long for me to realize what the hype was all about. It was all about 25 cent cookies (now 35 cents) and $1.75 ice cream sandwiches! Now whenever I visit the campus or am in Westwood, Diddy Riese is a must stop. Aside from the chance to get some of their yummy and very affordable cookies, going to Diddy Reese brings back so many memories for me of happy bonding times with Bruin friends
The moment I walk into Diddy Reese, I am always pleasantly greeted with the sweet aroma of fresh baked cookies. The display of colorful and sweet cookies is always brings a smile to my face and I react like a giddy UCLA freshman all over again ;). There are so many delicious flavors to pick from!
They have cinnamon sugar cookies sprinkled with golden cinnamon specks and sweet little sugar dots. They also have white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, which happen to be my favorite Diddy Riese cookie flavor of all.
All of these cookies are a great deal at 35 cents each! Surprisingly I saw they offer the cookies at even cheaper price if you get the day old cookies. You can get a dozen for $2.50! That is only 20 cents a cookie!
Diddy Riese cookies always bring a smile to my face and they’re sure to bring a smile to others as well. They offer special tins and boxes of cookies that make for great gifts. It’s perfect for this holiday season.
