More doggie stories out of the food industry
Readers may have noticed our previous article which spelt out the scientific basis for the lethal connection between chocolate and dogs.
Now comes another set of tales to add to the tail of the article.
Gelatissimo to sell dog-friendly gelato this Easter
Australian gelato franchise Gelatissimo will be selling canine-friendly gelato this Easter Saturday.
Free to any dog that can make its way to selected Gelatissimo gelato shop, the “Doggie Gelato” is a dairy and gluten free peanut nought ice cream with certainly no chocolate included.
If your pet is willing to share, the ice cream is human-friendly too.
The Doggie Gelato will be available this Saturday 26 March 2016 until stocks last. Participating Gelatissimo stores include Balmain, Bondi Beach, Central Park, Coogee, Cronulla, Newtown, Watsons Bay, Wagga, Manuka, Lane Cove, Lygon Street, Coolangatta, Mackay, Mooloolaba, Noosa, Toowoomba, Norwood and Surfers.
Will the Western Bulldogs go for this chocolate?
Ethihad Stadium, the home of the traditionally working-class Western Bulldogs AFL team has decided to not sell Cadbury chocolate this football season.
It has instead decided to sell the hipster-friendly vegan Pana Chocolate in a variety of flavours including raw cacao and mint.
Is Pluto the planet Krypton?
In Joe Lederman’s article on chocolate’s link with outer space he explains how the methylxanthines in chocolate which are dangerous to dogs originated from space.
There was a planet called Pluto which scientists have now denied was ever a planet. Walt Disney must have had a clue because the name given to his cartoon character dog was Pluto.
At the height of Walt Disney’s fame, Pluto was known as the furthest from the Sun and the Earth. The explanation may well be that the planet Pluto has a sea of chocolate that poses a real threat to dogs on Earth.
Australian Food News wishes our readers a Happy Easter (or Happy Purim and Passover, to those who like chocolate hamantaschen or chocolate matzah).
We’ll be back soon but we are closed for Easter Monday.
