The Cookie Shop In New Mexico That Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth In The Best Way Possible
There’s a cookie store in New Mexico that’s a one-of-a-kind dessert destination. The shop takes the standard cookies and milk combo and transforms it into a funky environment that’s appealing to kids and adults alike.
The scent wafting out of Rude Boy Cookies, in Albuquerque, lures you inside. Just the sight of the cookie displays will have you drooling.
You’ll find a classic selection like chocolate chip, peanut butter, or snickerdoodle cookies. However, while all the recipes here are original, some of the flavors are more unexpected than others.
Red velvet may be standard when it comes to cupcakes, but it’s much less typical as a cookie.
There’s a rotating menu of cookie specials that changes on a monthly basis. This is the double chocolate cherry. It’s nearly too pretty to eat. Nearly.
Gluten free and vegan cookies are also available.
The cookies here are substantial, chewy, and best when heated – just ask the staff and they’ll be happy to warm up your treat.
Nothing pairs better with warm cookies than milk.
Rude Boy offers the state’s only milk bar, where milk – dairy, soy, almond - is served on tap like beer. If you opt for plain, customize it with a shot of one of eight locally-made syrups. Watch in awe as your creation is mixed in a martini shaker. Who knew milk could be so much fun?
On Fridays, Rude Boy presents a reinvented happy hour, where you can down a shot of milk and chase it with your glass. Seriously, your glass is crafted from cookies!
Milkshakes and ice cream sandwiches, using Bluebell ice cream, are also on the menu. No need to use the same kind of cookie on the top and bottom. Experiment with some unusual combinations – ask for your sandwich "deconstructed" if you’re not confident in your mixing abilities.
In keeping with the classic milk and cookies theme, the store has a retro vibe with a red and black, checkerboard design.
This is actually a nod to ska music. This genre began in the 1950s and it's what is played in the shop. Despite the name, service here is friendly. A Rude Boy or Girl is a term for a devoted ska fan.
Now wipe the drool off your screen and head on over to 115 Harvard SE in Albuquerque for a dessert experience that’ll exceed all your expectations.
