Here is a tidbit of information about me…that well, if you met me you probably wouldn’t guess. I love a good old fashioned hot dog every once in a while. I miss my 7-Eleven stores back in Virginia, here it is much like the ZZ Top song and you are walking through the parking lot of the invisible 7-Eleven because we do not have them. Why am I talking about 7-Eleven after saying I love a good old fashioned hot dog, well that is where I used to get the best (most unhealthy I am sure) chili-cheese hot dog with extra jalapenos and hot sauce.
A little unknown statistic: 7-Eleven sells the most grilled hot dogs in North America – over 100 million annually!
Here is another fun fact – Did you know that the first words spoken by Mickey Mouse on screen when they transitioned from silent movies was “Hot Dog!”
Here is a friendly brochure provided by the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council (Who knew???)
There is even a Hot Dog Slogan bumper sticker contest this month.
Anyway don’t forget to celebrate on July 23rd by dressing up your favorite dog!
