How on earth does Diddy Riese stay in business? Even with a line 30-deep, out the door, down the street, I just can’t see how 2 cookies and a scoop of ice cream sold one-at-a-time for just $1 each can pay for the Westwood overhead and wages for five men behind the counter. There’s gotta be something else going on back there.
but if there is, and i knew what it was, i'd never tell, because i love chocolate chip on one side, cinnamon sugar on the other, and strawberry cheesecake ice cream squashed in between. i still can't believe it's only a dollar!
a co-worker told me in a hushed tone that the reason the cookies taste so good is that they are made with *whisper* “pork lard.” there was a dramatic pause and he looked at me as if i were going to *gasp* with disgust. to his dismay, i laughed. of course they taste good because they’re made with lard. that's why i eat it - it tastes good. duh.
i’ll take espresso chip ice cream with a white chocolate chip macadamia and an m & m cookie now, please. make that two. thanks.
