Forget gourmet snacks for humans – New Zealand has gone barking mad for human-like treats for their dogs. Moustache Milk & Cookie bar is offering limited edition, dog-friendly chocolate chip cookies in its Auckland and Wellington stores.rn
The cookies are made using dog-friendly chocolate and are available for three days only. Moustache also mentioned it wants to trial “Meowstache Cookies” specifically tailored to cats on its Facebook page.
Gourmet pet food served up along human food seems to be a growing trend in Auckland, as Hipgroup and K9 Natural dog food’s Bone Apetit initiative earlier this year called was a smash hit.
When customers ate at one of Hipgroup’s two Auckland cafes – Takapuna Beach Café and Kohi Corner – they were allowed to order a healthy meal for their pet off the doggy degustation menu. Doggy bags were also available on request.
Meanwhile, overseas the “Puppuccino” is a well known Starbucks secret menu item for canine companions.
Although not recommended by vets, the Puppuccino is a Starbucks cup with some whipped cream inside and makes for an adorable Instagram photo.
