The ice cream, which costs £1.20 and is offered at The Chapelfield Cafe in Chapelfield Gardens in Norwich, replaces the chocolate flakes in a Mr Whippy with dog biscuits.

Kerry Dain, who has run the cafe for 13 years with her husband, began to serve the ice cream after years of public demand.

She said: "Every summer members of the public would ask if they could buy an ice cream for their dog.

"I would always say but not with a chocolate flake so decided to replace it."
