Launching this summer at gelato festivals in Florence and Agugliano is IceBau, a gelato made without milk, eggs, or sugar so as to be easier for dogs to digest. ("Bau" is what dogs say in Italy.) A scoop of rice, yogurt or vanilla served with a dog biscuit runs €2 ($2.50) at pet stores. A dog owner tells the AP the stuff tastes "fantastic"; let's take her word for it. Here's a video of dogs enjoying their frozen treat:
