A restaurant in Taiwan is offering an ice cream dish that looks like a miniature puppy.
J.C. Co Art Kitchen in the southern city of Kaohsiung put this lifelike treat on the menu in July. It has already gotten plenty of attention on social media—so much so that the restaurant is struggling to keep up with demands, according to Reuters.
The puppy-shaped ice cream is made using special molds and a unique recipe that makes the ice cream take on a furry, realistic appearance.
To make the treat, the ice cream is scooped into the mold and kept in a freezer at -22 degrees Fahrenheit and takes five hours to make. The freezing temperatures are essential so the sculpture can maintain its shape while the staff decorates the puppies’ eyes with a chocolate mixture.
According to The Straits Times, you can get a Labrador Retriever puppy in earl grey-flavored ice cream, a Pug in chocolate and a Shar-Pei in a peanut flavor.
“I feel sorry for him, because he has been made to look very lifelike,” customer Mia Hsu tells Reuters. “It is as if a real dog is lying there.”
A small puppy ice cream costs about $3.50 and the larger size is about $6.
