Dog ice cream from Aldi is a frozen treat specifically made for dogs. It is a safe and dog-friendly alternative to regular ice cream. It is formulated with ingredients that are healthy and non-toxic for canines.
Aldi dog ice cream is a seasonal item that can be found at your local Aldi stores during the summer months.
Since Aldi dog ice cream comes pre-frozen, you can find the ice cream for dogs in the freezer section. Typically the seasonal and limited time food items are found in the freezer chests next the perimiter freezer section.

The ice cream packaging is a bright blue box with a happy black and white dog. It says:
