5 to Try: Ice Cream Treats
By Lesley Balla, Los Angeles Editor
Diddy Riese Cookies
926 Broxton Ave, Los Angeles, CA
Create a personalized ice cream sandwich for a whopping $1 at this Westwood favorite.
Mashti Malone's Ice Cream
1525 N LA Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA
Ordinary vanilla can't compare to the exotic rosewater, orange blossom and saffron flavors found at this unassuming strip-mall shop.
Eiger Ice Cream
124 S Barrington Pl, Los Angeles, CA
Bypass store-bought drumsticks for a scoop of homemade vanilla covered in a thick, peanut-studded fudge shell.
806 S Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
Even the biggest movie stars with the tiniest waistlines indulge in this creamy, handmade gelato.
219 S Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, CA
Pasadena's stay-awake treat: Fosselman's cappucino and espresso ice creams and homemade fudge sauce are blended into the ultra-thick Graveyard milkshake.
While I don't really agree with their pick of Diddy Riese, Soda Jerks has a very cool coffee syrup that is sooo good on vanilla ice cream. And I would love to try Mashti and Eiger's, both sound great....Mine would be:
1. Baskin Robbins - Two words, Mint Chip.
2. Haagen Daaz - Coffee plain, all the way.
3. Fossleman's - Everything is handmade and goooood.
4.Cold Stone Creamery - I'll take the coffee ice cream with TWIX bars...
5. Tutti Gelati - In Pasadena, it's delish...
