July Is National Hot Dog Month!
Summer is usually filled with campfires, grilling, and baseball games and, of course, hot dogs!
Hot dogs? We’ll, they can be an easy, quick delicious treat served with all of your favorite toppings!
Not a real nutritious choice, but nowadays, you can buy quite a few varieties, turkey franks, chicken franks, beef franks and many more!
Also, have you ever wondered just how many hot dogs Americans consume? After I did a little research, I discovered that between Memorial Day and Labor Day, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, about seven billion hot dogs will be consumed!
Here are a few fun facts according to a post on www.nationaldaycalendar.com,
“Joey Chestnut currently holds the world record in hot dog eating by eating 69 hot dogs (and buns) in 10 minutes”
“The Tokyo Dog food truck located in Seattle, WA has the record for the most expensive hot dog , costing $169”
“The longest hot dog on record, made by Novex SA of Paraguay in 2011, is 668 ft. and 7.62 in. (203.80m.)”
Why not celebrate National Hot Dog Month, by cooking up some plump, juicy dogs on
that grill or roasting them over a crackling open fire!
