You’ve probably seen it all—from pet food that’s never seen the inside of a can to home-cooked diets. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are some pretty wacky food products available to man’s best friend.

Here’s a look at some of the strange and strangely delicious sounding food that’s available for pets, according to Fox News.

  1. Cake in a jar. Blissful Biscuits offers a full line of homemade, all-vegetarian dog treats. The most outrageous item is a ready-to-eat, apple-flavored cake baked especially for dogs that comes vacuum-sealed in a jar.
  2. Elegant Medleys Wild Salmon and Egg Soufflé with Garden Greens. The folks at Fancy Feast know cats love fish and pet owners love giving their pets high-quality food. But egg soufflé and garden greens? It’s hard to imagine those items holding up well in a can.
  3. Cannoli. Annie’s Pooch Pops makes these for the canine with a love for Italian pastries. They are also available in peanut butter cannolis, complete with mini carob chips instead of chocolate chips, so they’re safe for dogs to eat.
  4. Doggie cupcakes. The popular and ever-expanding Sprinkles Cupcakes chain offers doggie cupcakes, which are sugar-free cakes topped with a yogurt “frosting.”
  5. Ice cream scoops. Chewy’s Rawhide Shoppe sells a variety of dessert treats for dogs, such as ice cream scoops. They come complete with “sprinkles” in a savory chicken flavor.
  6. French fries. Annie’s Pooch Pops strikes again with French fries, bacon cheeseburger treats (available in regular and slider size), and hot dog treats for, well, hot dogs.
