It’s pretty much a rule that when it’s this sunny, a daily ice cream is needed (at least) – but why should your doggo miss out on the fun?
Aldi doesn’t believe they should, which is why it is the first supermarket to launch doggie ice cream nationwide. We’re sure this is going to go down a doggy treat.
The new Beechdean Doggy Ice Cream is officially available in Aldi from June 16th, and four 110m tubs are for sale at a very reasonable £2.99.
You can buy your dog an ice cream at your local Aldi from tomorrow, but the fun doesn’t stop there, either.
To celebrate the new launch, Aldi has teamed up with local ice cream vendors across the country and they are now providing the frozen treats, too.
Look for special ice cream vans in Brighton, Essex and Scotland this weekend to try one for yourself.
Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “With more of our customers now owning dogs, we’re delighted to launch a nutritious and tasty treat that will help keep dogs cool in the heat.
“Being the first UK supermarket to launch a dog-friendly ice cream comes just in time for summer as we look forward to the warm weather.”
If you don’t have an Aldi near you, there are tonnes more smaller businesses you can buy doggy ice cream from, too, BTW.
For one, Marshfield Farm sells vanilla and mint Scoop’s ice cream for dogs at various smaller local shops around the UK (you can check where they’re retailing here).
Meanwhile, Woof & Brew PawPops are also available in Mountain Warehouse and various pet shops nationwide, offering up an ice lolly alternative for pooches which sounds equally great.
The lollies are made with 100% natural herbs so they’re not only refreshing for your dog but they’re also nutritious.
We think there are going to be tails wagging up and down the country once these doggy treats get snapped up.
