A handful of dessert parlours across Greater Manchester are serving up frozen treats for dogs all summer long.
With summer now officially here, and much of the country being blessed with glorious sunshine and warm weather over the past week, it’s no wonder so many of us are looking to cool down with an ice cream or frozen treat – but as most pet owners know, it’s not just us we need to be thinking when the heat arrives.
Those of us with a four-legged friend in our lives are always on the look-out for the best way to keep our pets cool during the summer.
And one local frozen yoghurt dessert parlour is thankfully giving us a helping hand with that.
A perfect pit-stop on a dog walk or to keep out of the sun, Frurt has been a staple part of the Manchester food and drink scene for more than 10 years now, and while it’s known for its wide selection of frozen yoghurt and dessert options for humans, there’s also plenty of options for hungry pups to choose from.
Founded back 2010 with a passion to create the perfect frozen yoghurt, Frurt has managed to create a delicious and healthy treat for everyone to enjoy.
The dessert parlour chain focuses on crafting recipes that cater for its wide customer base, and only uses the finest ingredients.
With five locations across the region – including two stores right here in Manchester city centre – and several award wins to its name, Frurt has a range of dairy-free frozen yoghurt options that are all dog-friendly.
Some of the stand-out summer flavours include refreshing mango and lemon sorbets.
If you really want to pamper your pup and treat them like they deserve, there’s even a range of different fruit toppings to add on as well.
Of course, for Frurt’s human guests this summer, there’s an even more exciting line up of treats to tuck into – with cakes, bubble tea, smoothies, thick shakes, and vegan options all on the menu, as well as its popular lineup of fro-yo flavours.
You can pop into Frurt on Peter Street and Whitworth Street West in Manchester city centre, or any of its three self-serve stores in Prestwich, Bolton, and Blackburn, this summer.

Architect video shows the progress of the ever-changing Greater Manchester skyline
A building planner and architecture firm’s new YouTube video shows the remarkable progress of Greater Manchester’s ever-changing skyline.
VU.CITY is a city-planning firm based out of London that specialises in building out 3D platforms which render both existing, developing and future structures.
Better yet, it shows a 3D visual representation of what they will look like in the coming months and years.
It’s even crazier to think what the trajectory of this video would have looked if you wound the clock back even by another 10 years.
As you can, not only has the company shown city’s skyline evolves over time, the company recently highlighted both central and Greater Manchester, highlighting the likes of Salford, Salford Quays and Stockport as they continue to grow.
While plenty of people have been understandably concerned over Manchester’s ever-changing skyline, especially post-2020’s Manctopia programme about the local property boom, the money these new-builds and developments have generated in the city cannot be denied.
Not only is Manchester one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe but two different towns in the region have been named among the best places to live in Britain over the past 12 months alone, but the city centre itself was named by Time Out as one of the best locations to visit anywhere in the UK.
It’s no wonder some of the happiest people in the country also live here, apparently.
Just lots of people telling us what we already know: Manchester is mint and thanks to its ever-changing skyline, it’s only looking more attractive to city types.
The Holiday is apparently getting a sequel after 17 years and it’s featuring the original cast
One of the best-loved festive films is apparently set to get a sequel 17 years after the original was released.
There’s no denying that The Holiday is an absolute Christmas classic at this point.
Released all the way back in 2006, the romantic comedy film stars Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as Iris and Amanda – two lovelorn women from opposite sides of the pond who arrange a home exchange to escape heartbreak during the Christmas season.
However, their lives change unexpectedly when they meet and fall in love with two local lads played by Jack Black and Jude Law.
The Holiday is a film many like to stick on each time the festive season rolls around, and if you’re one of those with it on your watch list each year, then you’ll be pleased to know that the whole cast has reportedly agreed to film a sequel.
According to reports in The Sun doing the rounds today, Winslet, Diaz, Black, and Law are all said to have “signed on” to return.
Filming for the sequel is set to kick off next year, according to insiders.
The insider told The Sun: “The plan is to start rolling on scenes next year, primarily in the U.K. and in Europe, but the main talent are all signed up and on board.
“It’s one of the most successful movies of its kind and still enjoyed every year by millions of fans around the world – it makes perfect sense to revisit those characters and find out what became of their lives after they hooked up.
“It’ll be funny, poignant, and heartwarming – just what everyone wants for Christmas.”
Although the sequel is said to be in the works, it’s all very up in the air at the moment as no further details about the plot have been released.
