It’s National Hot Dog Day!

Today is “National Hot Dog Day” so let’s look at a few “Hot Dog Fun Facts” . . .

  • Americans will consume 7 BILLION hot dogs between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
  • West Virginia is the state that LOVES hot dogs the most.
  • Among individual cities, Buffalo is “top dog” (see what I did there?).
  • Mustard is the most popular topping.
  • 53% of people say a hot dog IS a sandwich.
  • 75% of people (or 3 out of 4) have put the condiments in the bun BEFORE the hot dog. (???)

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.
