Normally, ice cream is something we should try to keep away from dogs. Much like many humans, dogs can suffer from lactose intolerance as they get older, meaning they can’t break down the sugars in milk and have stomach problems.
That doesn’t mean dogs can’t enjoy frozen treats with us though, as Ben & Jerry’s just came up with a solution to that problem: frozen doggie desserts.
Made with a sunflower butter base and no dairy, the new Doggie Desserts collection are sets of frozen treats built specifically for dogs to eat. This doesn’t skimp on the quality, though, as Ben & Jerry’s is using the same ingredients that go into their regular ice cream for these sweets.
Each of the two new flavors is named after a dog in the Ben & Jerry’s headquarters. Rosie’s Batch is a Pumpkin Cookie frozen dessert made with pumpkin puree and mini cookies, while Pontch’s Mix blends together peanut butter and pretzel swirls.
Ben & Jerry’s new doggie treats are being sold in both grocery stores and pet shops nationwide, so you can pick up a pint for both yourself and man’s best friend next time you’re on a grocery run.
