Do you eat hot dogs that contain any of these ingredients?

* Sodium Nitrate * Sodium Diacetate * Sodium Erythorbate * Mechanically Separated Meat * Hooves

And is your motto “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” when it comes to hot dog ingredients?

If so then it may be time for a wienervention!

Let’s be frank: Friends shouldn’t let friends eat bad meat. It’s time to stage a “Wienervention” and Applegate is here to help.   A new survey finds that while 92% of Americans bought hot dogs in the last year, 80% agreed that most hot dogs are low quality and unhealthy. So when it comes to hot dogs, we think it’s time for a “cleaner wiener.”


More than 90% of people who consume hot dogs would rather purchase franks with a short ingredient statement, and that’s where Applegate steps in. Our ingredient list is simple: beef (that has never been administered antibiotics or hormones), water, salt and spices. It’s time to say goodbye to those dirty dogs filled with sodium phosphate, sodium nitrate, and who knows what else! Applegate happily acted as a “Meatiator” and provided me with a “Wienervention” kit to ensure me, my friends, and readers of my blog to enjoy cleaner wieners and never look back. The kits have the makings of a full-force backyard barbeque – without the junk! They include: –          Applegate Naturals Beef Hot Dogs –          Rudi’s Hot Dog Buns (White and Gluten-Free) –          Annie’s Organic Ketchup and Mustard –          Rick’s Pick’s Relish –          Applegate Apron –          Grilling tool set –          Frisbee –          Mini Applegate Cooler –          Susty paper straws and napkins

We enjoyed our Wienervention on the 4th of July with our family and friends. Every single person agreed that these dogs are THE BEST! We’ve never really enjoyed hot dogs before tasting Applegate’s! You can actually feel good about eating these and even my picky, picky children loved them.
Hubby was in charge of the grilling while I played with the cool frisbee that was included in our kit with my daughter 🙂
