SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (CBS) — Ben & Jerry’s isn’t just for humans anymore. The Vermont-based ice cream maker announced Monday that it’s selling frozen treats for pets.
The new products called Rosie’s Batch and Pontch’s Mix are named for two real pups that hang out in the dog-friendly Ben & Jerry’s workplace. Pontch’s has peanut butter and pretzel swirls, while Rosie’s features pumpkin and mini cookies.READ MORE: 5 People Rescued After Boat Capsizes Near Lighthouse In Buzzards Bay
