Today is #NationalHotDogDay! Find out where to cop FREE dogs and tasty deals!


It seems like EVERYDAY is NATIONAL ‘something’ day, right?  Well today is NATIONAL HOT DOG DAY!!!

The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council has designated July as Hot Dog Month and for 2018 Wednesday, July 18 as National Hot Dog Day.

Over 25 million hot dogs are sold at baseball stadiums each year.

Whether they are grilled, boiled, broiled, pan-fried, rotisserie cooked, cooked on a stick over a campfire or any other way, hot dogs are a favorite summertime staple. They are loved by children and adults alike plain or garnished with one or a combination of mustard, ketchup, onions, mayonnaise, relish, cheese, bacon, chili, or sauerkraut.

On May 31, 2012, a world record was set for the most expensive hot dog. The “California Capitol City Dawg” sold for $145.49 at Capitol Dawg in Sacramento, California. The “California Capitol City Dawg” features:

A grilled 18″ all-beef, in natural casing frank from Chicago
served on a fresh-baked herb and oil focaccia roll spread with white truffle butter, then grilled
topped with whole grain mustard from France, garlic and herb mayonnaise
sauteed chopped shallots, organic mixed baby greens, maple syrup
marinated/fruitwood smoked uncured bacon from New Hampshire
chopped tomatoes, sweetened dried cranberries, chopped tomato
expensive moose cheese from Sweden
basil olive oil/pear-cranberry-coconut balsamic vinaigrette and ground peppercorn
Proceeds from the sale of each 3 lb. super dog were donated to the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

7-Eleven sells the most grilled hot dogs in North America – 100 million annually.
To celebrate the day, several major chains across the country — Dog Haus, 7-Eleven, Sonic, Pilot Flying J, and more — are offering deals for free or super-cheap hot dogs.

National Hot Dog Day 2018
July is a bad month to be a hot dog. Odds are, you’re going to be eaten. It’s not just peak cookout season, more than 150 million hot dogs are wolfed down on the Fourth of July. Then, just days later, it’s National Hot Dog Day on Wednesday, July 18.

To celebrate the day, several major chains across the country — Dog Haus, 7-Eleven, Sonic, Pilot Flying J, and more — are offering deals for free or super-cheap hot dogs.
