We’re right between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which means its peak HOT-DOG SEASON. In fact, National Hot Dog Day is TODAY – Wednesday, July 21st, 2021.
It also means it’s that time of year when everyone debates whether or not hot dogs qualify as a sandwich.
There’s a new survey out where 53% of people say a hot dog IS a sandwich.
But here’s something else: 75% of people (around three out of four) say they have put the condiments in the bun BEFORE the hot dog.
Technically, it was more of a “have you done it,” than a question of a preferred method, but it’s still pretty surprising & weird.
For the record, the official hot dog etiquette guide says you should never place condiments between the bun and the hot dog – always put the dog in first.
Someone else looked into which states love hot dogs the most, using data from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council and Google.
West Virginia is #1 . . . followed by North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Maine, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Nevada.
Among individual cities, Buffalo is #1 . . . followed by Raleigh / Durham, North Carolina and Charlotte, North Carolina.
In all, Americans will consume 7 BILLION hot dogs between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
MUSTARD is the most popular topping.
Although…that hot dog may not be quite as appetizing, once you watch this video about how they’re made.
