Gelatissimo launches dog and human friendly gelato

Gelatissimo is releasing a limited-edition human and dog friendly gelato so if you've ever dreamt of sharing a Lady and the Tramp style meal with your pooch, now's your moment. Pawesome Peanut Butter is a deliciously smooth peanut butter gelato that is not only dog friendly but also vegan and will be available in Gelatissimo stores across Australia from Friday May 3.

The limited edition flavour has been specially formulated to share with your furry friend but delicious enough that you’ll definitely need a scoop each. Made fresh in-store with real peanut butter, it’s the perfect (or should we say ‘pawfect’) solution for anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of those heartbreaking puppy dog eyes. Whether you’re looking for that after-walk treat or just a good excuse to bring home a tub of gelato for dessert, this puppy-friendly flavour is sure to get the tail wagging.

To celebrate, Gelatissimo is throwing the ultimate brunch for you and your four-legged friend at Bodhi, at Cook & Philip Park in Sydney’s CBD on Saturday May 18. From 9:30am - 11:30am, you'll dine on vegan yum cha, they'll dine on freshly-made vegan dog treats and you'll both devour some Pawesome Peanut Butter gelato to finish. There'll be best-dressed prizes, photo opportunities and a whole lot of adorable puppies to play with. Tickets are $60 for a human and a dog, but fear not crazy dog lovers, for $50 you can come without a pet and still bask in all the cuteness over a plate of dumplings. Head here to fetch your tickets, but be quick - they won’t last long!

“It’s really important to us that we’re always catering to the whole family, and we all know that the family dog is just as much a part of that as anyone,” says Gelatissimo CEO Filipe Barbosa. “We did a lot of research to make sure that this flavour is 100 percent dog and human approved so our customers can share a bit of fun and deliciousness with everyone - even their furry family members.”

Made with peanuts and soy, the gelato isn’t suitable for dogs with a history of pancreatitis or for anyone, human or canine, with known food allergies or intolerances. But for everyone else, Pawesome Peanut Butter will be available in all 46 stores across Australia for a limited time only, while stocks last.
