Dogs can't eat chocolate, but Brewers fans can now indulge in a chocolate Hank the Ballpark Pup.

Niemann's Candies and Chocolate in Wauwatosa unveiled a chocolate Hank the Ballpark pup to celebrate the return of Brewers baseball. 

Covered in white confectioners coating to mimic his furry coat, the 1.5 pound, solid chocolate Hank--available in either dark, milk or white chocolate-- can be purchased throughout the 2018 season and costs $29.95. 

This year also celebrates the fourth anniversary of Hank, named after legendary slugger Hank Aaron, becoming part of the Brewers organization. 

Back in February 2014, when the Brewers were down in Maryville for Spring Training, Hank was a stray puppy that kept showing up at the Brewers facility and quickly captured the hearts of fans everywhere. 

Since then, he's had a bobblehead night, a dog house built for him in Miller Park, and a full-size mascot made in his likeness. 

Now, he finally has his own chocolate. You can learn more about the Hank chocolate and other candies on Niemann's website.
