Ben & Jerry's Makes Line of "Doggie Desserts" Ice Cream for Pups

Finally, dog food you may actually want to eat.

Anyone with functioning tastebuds will tell you that Ben & Jerry's is some of the best ice cream — if not one of the best things to eat, period — around. Unfortunately for our four-legged friends, the pleasures of Vermont's finest frozen dessert have been confined to humankind, leaving our pups to occasionally beg for or steal a lick of Cherry Garcia.

Starting now, though, that all changes. For the first time in their history, the company that brought us Phish Food has branched out into dog food, with a line of frozen Doggie Desserts specifically designed with your pet's palate in mind.

The two canine-focused flavors on offer so far aren't just frozen kibble, either. Built on a sunflower butter base, every ingredient in Pontch's Mix and Rosie's Batch can be found in real, human-oriented flavors of Ben & Jerry's as well. Pontch's Mix, inspired by a French bulldog who calls the Ben & Jerry's office home, features tasty peanut butter and pretzel combo. Rosie, the ice cream company's resident rescue mutt, inspired a combination of pumpkin and mini cookies.

So why go out of their way to make ice cream for dogs? Because everyone in the family deserves ice cream.

"We know our fans love their dogs and treat them like family" Ben & Jerry's Global Marketing Specialist/certified vet tech Lindsay Bumps said in a press release. "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."

Ben & Jerry's also has non-edible (though certainly chewable) items for dogs in their collection too. That includes a 6' custom tie-dye leash fashioned out of upcycled water bottles, plus a plush ice cream cone stuffed with recycled fill. One man's trash is another dog's treasure.

If you think your good boy or girl deserves a treat, you'll find Doggie Desserts sold in individual four-ounce cups, as well as in four count multipacks, from supermarkets, pet stores, and other retailers that carry human-oriented Ben & Jerry's ice cream. Just make sure not to tell your cat.
