Ben & Jerry's Debuts Ice Cream for Dogs

Specialty Food Association

Ben & Jerry’s has introduced two new flavors designed for dogs, for the first time in the company’s history. Doggie Desserts are specifically formulated for dogs with a sunflower butter base and mix-ins like peanut butter and pretzel swirls in Pontch’s Mix, or pumpkin and mini cookie in Rosie’s Batch, both named after real dogs in the Ben & Jerry’s office.

"We know our fans love their dogs and treat them like family," said Lindsay Bumps, a Ben & Jerry's global marketing specialist, 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-ounce mini cups or in 4-count multipacks, with a suggested retail price of $2.99 and $4.99, in supermarkets, mass retailers, and select pet stores nationwide.
