Hot Dog Day Giveaway

National Hot Dog Day with ApplegateHappy National Hotdog Day! Yes, starting in 2009, July 23 is the day that celebrates one of America’s most iconic summer staples, the hot dog! In fact, July is National Hot Dog month!

Take a look around any baseball field, grill, or campfire and you’ll find these savory treats. Unfortunately most hot dogs on the market today are made of low quality “meat” and are full of ingredients like sodium phosphate and sodium nitrate. Yuck! That’s why the people at Applegate say it is time for a “wienervention.” Applegate first caught my eye with their clever commercials featuring moms on the search for a natural hot dog running into bodybuilders in cow jumpsuits. Applegate hot dogs are indeed “cleaner wieners.” Their ingredient list is simple: quality beef (antibiotic-free, humanely raised ,vegetarian grain-fed) water, salt, and spices in their hot dogs.

The “meatiators” at Applegate sent Bert, my older sister, and I a “Wienervention Kit” full of delicious goodies we enjoyed at a family cookout this Sunday. All of us, adults and kids alike loved the Applegate hot dogs. They boasted the traditional salty goodness a good hot dog should and I could tell this dog was all meat and no filler.

    My family loves hotdogs! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I like that their hot dogs are nitrate-free. I know that there is a cancer risk associated with nitrates, so not having them will make me feel better about feeding them to my kids.

    Having moved to FL a few years ago, I found Applegate while shopping at my new grocer. I love the organic line of Beef Hot Dogs, the sausage and bacon are awesome – thanks for a chance

  6. I haven’t seen this brand on Canadian shelves, but I love a “healthier” hot dog option!
