We Love Hot Dogs, But Wonder What’s Inside That Dog

An estimated 150 million wieners are eaten on July 4th. A survey, sponsored by Applegate, a producer of organic and natural meats, found despite consumers’ hunger for hot dogs, 74 percent said most are of “low quality.”
Eighty-one percent said they would rather buy franks with a short ingredient statement that listed beef, water, sea salt and spices versus one with items like sodium phosphate and sodium nitrite.

The survey also revealed that mustard was the top topping, followed by ketchup, onions and relish.

Regional favorites for hot dog toppings.  Midwesterners like pickles on their hot dogs more than any other region of the country, but in the West they like cheese, and in the Northeast they like sauerkraut. Down South, chili edged out relish and onions, and came in just behind mustard and ketchup.
Ninety-five percent said grilled hot dogs were delicious while only 9 percent said they never buy hot dogs.

Make mine with everything.
