Ben & Jerry’s Debuts Pet Friendly Treats
You can now share a treat with your 4 legged best friend. The company originaly began developing the dog-friendly sweets early last year, but the coronavirus pandemic has expanded their customer base as more Americans adopt and foster pets.
Now you no longer have to deal with your pup giving you the sad dog eyes every time they see you eating ice cream.
The new treat is appropriately called Doggie Desserts, and will hit its website on Monday and the shelves of grocery and pet stores this month.
The line kicks off with two flavors named after its employees’ pets:
- Pontch’s Mix, which is peanut butter with a pretzel swirl,
- Rosie’s Batch, a mix of pumpkin and mini cookies.
They will also be selling a line of Ben and Jerry's pet accessories, like chew toys, leashes, and of course, Ben and Jerry's puppy swag.
This idea started last year, but really became a goal for the company after a large amount of dogs were adopted and fostered during the pandemic. The company has always been a pet friendly organization, employees are even encouraged to bring their pets to work with them.
They will sell individually as 4-ounce mini cups or in four-packs for a suggested price of $2.99 and $4.99.
If I were to choose which one of those I would get, I'd have to go with Pontch's Mix. I am not a big fan of pumpkin.
Then again, i'm not a dog, so these were not created with me in mind.
They are expected to roll out more flavors this year.
