Let's be "frank." When it comes to special "howlidays," July is going to the dogs! Literally! According to a Biz Journals report published on July 22, a very tasty food holiday is hours away and Americans are in the mood to celebrate! July 23, 2014, is National Hot Dog Day, an annual occasion that takes place during the dog days of summer. In fact, the month of July is National Hot Dog Month! Hot diggity dawg!
Whether you prefer yours in a bun, on the run, baked or hot off the grill, one thing’s for certain – Americans love their dogs. According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, more than 1 billion packages of hot dogs were sold in stores in 2013. While Los Angeles was the top dog when it came to consumption in 2013, New York, Atlanta, Philly and Chicago rounded out the top five.
Fan favorites at ballparks across the country, hot dogs, franks and/or wieners are the perfect summer-time sandwich no matter where you eat them. While the name of the actual product is often used interchangeably, franks are typically comprised of all-beef while wieners usually contain pork. Some establishments around the country will be servin' up special hot dog deals and free frank freebies across America in honor of National Hog Dog Day.
