Today is National Hot Dog Day and fans of the snack can find special deals today on this famous American fast food.
Why is today National Hot Dog Day? Apparently nobody knows. It just is. Sausage makers and Hot Dog restaurants use the day to offer special deals on the very American snack that has its origin in Germany.
There are many Hot Dog days organized by communities throughout the year that also have no clear origin. It is best to not think to much about it and just save some money on a Hot Dog lunch today.
7 Eleven offers for $1 a Big Bite hot dog all day. Sonic Drive in is also offering a $1 Hot Dog deal with All-American & Chili Cheese Coneys.
Best Buy offers a National Hot Dog Day deal on a retro Hot Dog Toaster to make Hot Dogs quickly at home.
The Nostalgia Electrics Pop-Up Hot Dog Toaster sells for $14.99 instead of $24.99 on BestBuy.com.
Oscar Mayer takes the National Hot Dog Day 2015 as reason to reveal a new Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. The Wiener Rover, an all-terrain hot dog on heavy-duty wheels that will deliver hot dogs to fans across the country.
Oscar Meyer runs Wienermobiles since 1936. The Wiener Rover is a smaller, remote-controlled and battery-powered version of the iconic vehicle.
Not only is the Wiener Rover able to go off-roading over grass, dirt and rocks, but it also delivers precious cargo of warm, ready-to-eat hot dogs to fans wherever they find it.
"We consistently hear that people are hungry for a hot dog after they see the Wienermobile, but we have never been able to offer them the deliciousness they desire," said Corey Rudd, senior associate brand manager at Oscar Mayer. "We developed the Wiener Rover to go where no Wienermobile has gone before to surprise and delight our loyal fans at their local parks, beaches, festivals and beyond."
About one-seventh the size of the original Wienermobile, the Wiener Rover comes in at 23 inches tall and 43 inches long (or about four hot dogs by eight hot dogs). The newest battery-powered hot dog on wheels maxes out at 20 mph.
The hot dog compartment is able to hold up to eight hot dogs, plus condiments like Heinz Tomato Ketchup and Heinz Yellow Mustard.
