This puppy ice cream is so lifelike, people can't bear to eat it

At first glance, it’s hard to tell apart the ice cream served at a Taiwan cafe and a living pooch.

With deep wrinkles and puppy eyes, the gelato served at Bambino is modelled after a dog breed called Chinese Shar Pei.

And customers can’t bear to take a bite out of the icy treat. 

“It really feels like a real dog is looking at you,” said a customer. Another said: “I feel like cutting into him will hurt him, I feel sorry for him.”

It’s evident that a lot of attention was paid to the smallest details – such as the dog’s characteristic wrinkles and sandpapery skin.

The lifelike puppy gelato is melting hearts in Taiwan, and Bambino’s staff are struggling to meet demands.

According to local media, it takes up to five hours to make 100 servings of the ice cream in a day.

They come in two flavours – chocolate or earl grey tea – and are on sale for TWD198 (S$8.80) each.

You’d better get your camera ready as this puppy ice cream starts melting three minutes after leaving the fridge.
