"It is as if a dog is lying here and I feel like cutting into him will hurt him,” the patron said. Social media users have been going back and forth trying to decide whether the ice cream should be eaten or taken home and kept safely in the refrigerator.
Despite the mixed responses on social media, lifelike doggie desserts appear to be growing into a trend. A café on the other side of Taiwan, in Yilan, is now serving up similar frozen doggie desserts.
Many customers have shown up at J. C. Co Art Kitchen after it began the dog-inspired gelato creations about a month ago. The founders are Nelson Liang and Cathy Chung.
