Rocky Roadkill – The Ice Cream

July 21 | 2 Comments

You have to hand it to the Europeans, they sure know how to treat their animals. Case in point is this story.

It’s fat-free, comes in three flavors, and it’s for … dogs.

Introducing “Dogissimo” – an ice cream created specifically for canines which has gone on sale at a Vienna ice cream parlor.

And with temperatures in the Austrian capital topping 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) for almost a week, the treat – available in rice, vanilla-rice and soy flavors – has the potential to become a hit during the dog days of summer.

What a great start on a terrific idea but let’s be serious, those flavors leave a lot to be desired. Rice, vanilla-rice and soy? I guess they must have run out of cardboard flavor.

A little market research would have gone a long way. Flavors with names like Double Chocolate Anal Gland Delight, Chunky Monkey Head Surprise and Moose Poop Tracks would make this venture a sure winner.

Even with the poor implementation of the flavors, your dog still wants to vacation in Vienna.

    Bo, I do agree with your new suggested flavors and would like to add a few more: Mom’s Favorite Pair of Shoes, Peanut Butter with Cheese Chunks, and Lick the Dinner Plate Clean. For those puppies out there, maybe a started flavor like, Mattress Stuffing of Couch Filling.

    I am so relieved there is someone out there that I can relate to and finally have some educated reading material for the yard. Keep up the good work!

    Dory,

    Excellent choices. I’ve had the Mattress Stuffing of Couch Filling and it is absolutely decadent!

    I’ll have to try the peanut butter and cheese chuncks. I’ve never tried that combo before but it sounds delish.

    Bo
