The Dirty Cookie Combined the Classic Milk and Cookie Combo Into One Tasty Treat

Instagram has introduced me to a variety of unique food and dessert places in Orange County and Los Angeles.

Every day, I find a new restaurant, coffee shop, candy store, etc. that I bookmark to visit.

As my list keeps growing and growing, I figured now's as good a time as ever to start checking them all off. I kicked off my adventure by checking out The Dirty Cookie.

Nestled away in the Union Market in Tustin, California, this dessert shop created a clever take on the classic milk and cookies combo by serving milk in a cookie cup. Genius!

What's even better is that they have vegan and gluten-free options, too. Just about anyone can enjoy the tasty treats they make.

The vegan and gluten-free cookie cup flavors they have include Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate and Chocolate Mint.

But don't worry, they have "normal" cookie flavors for those of you who don't have any dietary restrictions. Your choices include Strawberry, Matcha Green Tea, Churro, Cookies & Cream, Red Velvet and Chocolate Chip.

I opted for the Peanut Butter cookie and filled it with cold brew.

Again, they have endless possibilities of fillings for your cookie cups. Milk, Vanilla Almond Milk, Chocolate Creme, Vanilla Creme, Coconut Cold Brew, Soft-Serve and a Toasted Marshmallow can all occupy the inside of your cup.

Trust me, it was difficult to decide on cold brew, but boy do I love that stuff.

After my cup had just the right amount of cold brew in it, it was finally time to dig in.

I drank some cold brew first, which was some of the most delicious cold brew I've ever had, and then took a bite of the cookie.

You guys, it was magical. My tastebuds have never been more satisfied in their entire life. The cold brew was refreshing, but not too sweet. And it paired perfectly with the creamy peanut butter cookie.

I was surprised that cookie was soft and not hard as a rock.

It was bittersweet when I finished the cookie. I wanted more, but I was also thoroughly satisfied with my experience at The Dirty Cookie.

I'm definitely making my way back again, at least once I visit all the other places on my list.
