Frozen dog treats are a preferred delicacy amongst our canine companions. However, one of the most popular and sought-after frozen dog treats is Frosty Paws. You can get it in the freezer section of your local grocery store, sitting right next to the human ice cream.
It comes in small ice cream cups. Though, it isn’t ice cream. Frosty Paws frozen dog treats do not contain sugar, but it does contain soy instead of milk to accommodate most dogs’ lactose intolerance.
Frozen Dog Treats: Peanut Butter Flavor
The company’s main flavor of Frosty Paws frozen dog treats has a taste similar to cold chalk. However, Frosty Paws has come out with a peanut butter flavor.
From a business standpoint, Frosty Paws sells like hotcakes. For instance, it is a lucrative enterprise primarily because it costs less to make than ice cream.
Without milk, which has been getting pricier recently, Dairy price fluctuations do not affect Frosty Paws. Dreyer’s, the maker of the frozen treat, hardly spends any money on advertising. In fact, it is so popular that word-of-mouth is enough to sustain it.
An animal nutritionist created Frosty Paws in the late 1970s. It is, in fact, healthier for dogs than ice cream is for people. The frozen treat contains pure soy protein, lactose-removed whey protein, added vitamins, minerals, and oils.
It is sugar-free and has no artificial flavors. Remarkably, dogs enjoy the temperature of the treat, not so much its taste. The peanut butter flavor is more of a marketing promotion than an appeal to your pet’s taste buds.
Dog owners think they are giving their pets a tasty treat; however, your dog couldn’t care less. Making a Frosty Paws product with a liver flavor, for example, would make no difference to the dog but would probably turn off the human doing the actual buying.
Like many other dog treats, we can make the frozen ones at home. Thus, a straightforward and low-cost way to give your dog a frozen treat is to blend up some chicken or beef broth with tiny chicken tidbits or chunks and little bits of dog biscuits. Place the combination in an ice cube tray and allow freezing overnight. I can guarantee you that your dog will enjoy it!
