There is a cookie company for students with a sweet tooth who have spare change in their pockets or backpacks and are looking to get rid of it.
What if I told you that you can have a freshly baked cookie right out of the oven for less than a dollar, or that you could get three freshly baked cookies for exactly a dollar? For one more dollar you could get six cookies baked right out of the oven without being charged a tax or having to give a tip.
When Diddy Riese Cookies opened their doors in 1983 it made sure to sell the best cookies in town at a very low price.’ Located in Westwood, right down the street from UCLA, Diddy Riese Cookies has never had a line that wasn’t coming out the door and continuing around the corner.
