Ben & Jerry's launches ice cream for dogs with two pup-friendly flavours
Finally! Ice cream giant Ben & Jerry's has just announced two new pup-friendly frozen treats named after real life office dogs.
Curling up with a tub of your favourite ice cream is a real treat, and now thanks to a new launch by Ben & Jerry's, you can share that joy with your pup.
On Monday, ice cream giant Ben & Jerry's announced the launch of their Doggie Deserts, two pup-friendly frozen treat flavours named after two real dogs in the Ben & Jerry’s office.
The two new flavours - 'Pontch's Mix' and 'Rosie's Batch' - have been specifically formulated for dogs with a sunflower butter base and are inspired by Pontch, an affectionate Frenchie, and Rosie, a rescue mutt of mixed heritage.
'Pontch's Mix' is a peanut butter and pretzel swirl but if your pup prefers the sound of creamy pumpkin and mini cookies, then 'Rosie's Batch' is for them.
“We know our fans love their dogs and treat them like family,” said Lindsay Bumps, a Ben & Jerry’s Global Marketing Specialist and certified veterinary technician in a statement. “We created this product line so pups can enjoy something even better than belly rubs. Doggie Desserts are the sweetest treat they’ll ever put their paws on.”
Doggie Desserts will be sold individually in 4-oz mini cups or in 4-count multipacks and, according to the company's statement, they will be found in supermarkets, mass retailers, and select pet stores in the US. Although there is no specific mention of the products being sold in Canada at the moment, here's hoping we'll see these doggy treats in a store near us soon!
