This Tea House In Jacksonville Serves Shar-Pei-Shaped Ice Cream

Puppy eyes will make your heart melt.

When it comes to ice cream presentation, Asians know how to step it up a notch. The puppy ice cream trend has arrived to Jacksonville and some have mixed feelings about it. Now, you can get a Shar-Pei-shaped ice cream at OMG Cafe and Tea.

The OMG Poopy is the cafe's most popular item and the greatest thing about this ice cream is that it takes longer than one hour to melt. According to Jacksonville Magazine, there are only five of the Shar-Pei-shaped treats offered per day due to the amount it takes to prepare.

Each one of these treats takes about five hours to set at a temperature of -22 degrees. The treat only comes in a chocolate flavor for $8.25.

This trend originated in Taiwan and after it went viral on Instagram, it made its way to the United States. Some dog owners might have mixed feelings about the gentle-looking puppy treat but this well-crafted and molded treat have gained the attention of many. 

The tea house also serves milk tea, milkshakes and even chicken crepes. Their menu offers creative mixes and different combinations for the milk teas. 

According to Aldwin, "The owner is very friendly and the Milk teas here are very good! I recommend the Dirty Milk Tea with Cheese Cream Mousse and boba. I have yet to try the food but the place is very open and you can play any music you want! Perfect for studying by yourself or bringing a large group to hang around with and grab some boba."

Nothing like finishing up some work while having a puppy-shaped treat.
